Well, here we are.


Here we are, friends!  Welcome to Well Crafted Retreats, a new name and space for the Kingdom dream God has given us!  It’s a surreal feeling to see something that began as a dream in a journal now become the heartbeat of our ministry.  

At our beloved Draw Near Retreat, we’ve seen God move in such a tangible way that we want to make even more room.  A place for God to speak and for us to listen, a home for genuine worship without pretense, and space for us to walk in obedience to where He calls us next.

At Well Crafted we plan and execute your favorite retreats, the kind you remember forever because you encountered God in a way that changed you for the better.  Our goal is one thing: more of Him, in an environment worthy of the King. We want you to feel treasured, rested and valued because that is the way of the Father.  We care passionately for the details, because so does He.

So what’s the big deal?!  Not only are we launching a brand new website , but we’re bringing you FOUR new experiences for 2019--and we are believing that you will meet us there!

Well Crafted Weekend

Formerly the Draw Near Retreat, this is our flagship event.  This Thursday-Saturday retreat, slated for Fall 2019, is full of inspiring teaching, approachable art workshops and genuine space for rest and time with the Lord.  It is truly an incredible experience, which takes a full year to plan and execute. No detail is forgotten, and you will walk away feeling refreshed, renewed, and full of time with the Father.  Come alone or with a friend, but be ready to walk away in awe of your Creator.

Well Crafted One Day

Our Well Crafted One-Day Pop Up Retreat is a day designed for those of you who can’t get away for a full weekend but are in need of some rest and soul care.  You will find the same beautiful details as you do at any of our events, along with our art workshops and teaching to draw your heart close to God. Our first One-Day is coming up on January 19th, 2019 and we are over the moon excited about it.  Carpool with your people or meet a new friend when you arrive! Find all the details here!

Well Crafted Workshops

This is a brand new space for our online and local community of women who haven’t yet been able to attend our in-person retreats.  In March 2019 we will launch our first ever online retreat, Reclaiming Sabbath, complete with creative response in a workshop-type setting--just as we have at our Weekend and One-Day experiences!  It will be magical.

Well Crafted Weekly

Can we all agree that having a friend to cheer you on in your faith and challenge you when you need it is one of the best things about God’s community?  Well, we want be that friend. Well Crafted Weekly is an online devotional you can sign up to receive to get that inspiration and encouragement in your inbox.  Because let’s be real, one weekend a year just isn’t enough time for us to spend together.

We are just so excited to continue to create beautiful God experiences just for you! Thank you all so much for love and support of all He is doing here.


April and the Well Crafted Team!
