Fostering Healthy Relationships

Live into Your True Self IN Christ


The Soul Care Institute

CrossPoint launched the Soul Care Institute in 2015. The training is experientially focused in a relational modality of soul care. Pastors, counselors and spiritual directors joined us in this interactive opportunity. Participants meet three times a year over the course of two years (total of 6 cohorts). Each cohort is two and a half days at Country Lake Retreat Center. The cost of each cohort is $1000 plus a $125 one-time registration fee. Registration is open for 2019.   Contact us at if you are interested in learning more.

The Mother Wound: Why We Need the Nurturing Presence of Christ 

What was your relationship like with your mother as you were growing up?

Was she emotionally present to you or did she feel mostly distant? Was life typically all about her?  Were you neglected or abandoned? Did she pass away during your childhood or young adulthood? These are only some of the mother wounds that women have suffered all through history.

Wounds from our mothers can come to us as children, as teen-agers and as adults.  Many times, the wounds that our mothers pass on to us are what they experienced themselves.  In fact, these kinds of wounds can also come from other matriarchal figures such as grandmothers, aunts, teachers, and mother-in-laws.

If any of this resonates with what you have experienced or are experiencing now in your adult life,  I invite you to come to this Women’s Retreat.

The Mother Wound: Why We Need the Nurturing Presence of Christ.   It is an experience of being mindful of your wound in a safe place in the company of other women who have their own stories of mother wounds. If you have attended before and would like to attend again, I encourage you to do so. We all pray for continued healing of our individual mother wounds as Christ continues His work in us to be more like Him.

No matter your age, life circumstance or role I invite you to attend the next Mother Wound Retreat at Country Lake Retreat Center. The cost is $225 (there is scholarship help available if needed). You will experience the healing and hope that the nurture of Christ brings to our souls.

Enneagram Intensive Training

Currently CrossPoint offers an intensive workshop for those who want to become more familiar with the Wagner Enneagram Personality Style Scales (WEPSS). The training assumes a relational modality of spiritual transformation from a Christological perspective. If you are responsible for soul care (e.g. pastors, counselors, spiritual director) you will find the training to be very practical and extremely helpful. After reviewing the Triads and nine Types, along with Wings and Arrows, the majority of time focuses on case studies. You will be coached on how to interpret at least 12 actual (anonymous) profiles. This hands-on approach will give you the confidence you need to help others understand their profile.  The March 15-16, 2019 workshop at Country Lake Retreat Center, Underwood, IN.  We will host our fall Intensive on November 8-9, 2019. Registration for the spring training will open after the November Intensive.

You can contact us at if you need more details.

Deeper Journey

Deeper Journey is a two-year, eight-retreat experience held at Country Lake Retreat Center just north of Louisville, KY. It provides a comprehensive spiritual formation experience in light of the unique challenges of life and vocational ministry in the 21st century. The quarterly retreats offer an integrated approach of biblical theology and Christian psychology within a worshiping community. The experience includes worship, teaching, small groups, and personal time. Each retreat highlights at least one spiritual discipline and provides space for the engagement of the discipline.

We promise it will be well worth the investment (take a look at what others have to say about it).

The 2019 dates for Deeper Journey 8 are May 31st-June 1st, August 30th-31st, November 1st-2nd.   (you can also find the dates on Events Schedule).    The cost is $240 per retreat with a one-time registration fee of $150.  For more information you can contact us at

The Relational Soul

The Relational SoulAuthored by counselor Dr. Richard Plass and spiritual life coach Jim Cofield, The Relational Soul brings together the study of psychology and spiritual formation in a synthesized, easily understood format.

Each chapter includes introductory stories and practical “If this is true what about you?” questions to help readers engage in relationships in more life-giving ways. When the presence of Christ and community connects with a soul that is open, aware, and curious, we witness the miracle of transformation.
