Set Apart Retreat

The Set Apart Retreat will inspire and guide students to know God better, to think critically about their faith, and to develop a biblical vision for the needs of others.

The retreat model allows for students to engage in an intensive, off-campus experience with faculty, staff and peers to address important foundational faith questions and topics in an enjoyable and reflective environment. On the retreat, we seek to have a 1:7 student to faculty/staff ratio, with each student being placed in a small group led by a faculty/staff member. 

Every student will have an opportunity to attend a Set Apart Retreat within their first four semesters to assist in setting the tone for their educational experience at Asbury University. The cost for the retreat is $0, with all expenses paid due to the generosity of the Price Family Foundation.
