Shepherd's Spring Outdoor Ministry Center

Shepherd’s Spring is a retreat and conference center designed to be a place for renewal for you away from the rush of today's world. We believe the experience of God in the peacefulness and simplicity of the outdoors fosters renewal and learning for children and adults alike.  

Social scientists determine that today's families are overwhelmed by clutter, are too busy to go in their own back yards, and rarely eat dinner together.  Shepherd's Spring, nestled on 220 acres of rolling, wooded land along the Potomac River and C&O Canal, is a place set apart for renewal, growth, and personal connections.

We welcome you through our doors (and meadows) and invite you to explore our many programming and hospitality services.
