So what's in a name? More than ever before!

By Steve

Midwest Christian Retreats began almost a decade ago with a full-service Christian conference center that was fanatically committed to offering the best possible Christian off-site event hosting at truly affordable rates. As a 50-year veteran in this ministry, Lake Williamson led the industry with a host of best practices, extraordinary service, and all-inclusive event packages that had strong appeal to event planners.

In time other Christian conference/retreat properties in the Midwest began to join with Lake Williamson to form the MCR network. Each property became a champion of winning brand promises and combined their strengths to market their ministry services. Since the geography was close-- and in the Midwest-- the label of Midwest Christian Retreats was born. The network concept thrived for all partners and was a great example of the power of collaboration.

Recently the addition of two new network partners, located outside the Midwest, has provided the opportunity for an upgraded label that does not have the geographical limitations of the former "Midwest" label. So, in response to a growing network and a wider market, we introduce you to the CHRISTIAN RETREATS NETWORK! The name has been changed, but the brand quality, value, and service are still deeply embedded in who we are. In fact, the growing network offers more flexibility, options, and value than ever before.

The Christian Retreats Network is committed to being your partner in effective off-site ministry. We understand what it takes to execute a successful off-site event and look forward to providing you with the highest level of professional service in a Christ centered atmosphere.
