The Liebenzell Centre
The Liebenzell Centre serves as a place where church and para-church groups as well as pastors and other christian workers can retreat to find rest and renewal. The time spent on the peaceful grounds is meant to equip and enhance the spiritual lives of guests while also preparing them for their ministries to others.
The Liebenzell Centre does not act as a rental facility, but rather as a gift from God that Liebenzell Mission of Canada makes available without a set charge so that no worthy groups or individuals are prevented from using the Liebenzell centre for lack of funds. Groups and individuals who can donate to this ministry help cover costs for those who can’t.
Our facility is designed for groups and individuals to generally look after their own needs with regard to catering. For full details please request a copy of our Policy and our Guidelines for Use. There are also special retreats offered for Pastors and other Christian Workers.
