Nonprofit Partner Spotlight: Penuel Ridge

Do you ever find yourself yearning for a quiet place to retreat, reflect, meditate, and just be? If you’re like most of us, you’re likely sitting at a desk, checking and re-checking constant emails, tweets and texts, while trying to squeeze in a quick bathroom break before you crunch in one more client conversation. While you did take a break to “be creative,” the pyramid of empty coffee mugs on your desk just doesn’t cut it as a renewing activity anymore.

We have good news to share. On 135 acres of lovely rolling land in Ashland City – complete with a lake, meadows, woods, trails, and wildlife – is a special place called Penuel Ridge. This nonprofit retreat center has created a peaceful setting that offers the opportunity for people of all faiths, backgrounds, and income levels to have the space to focus on renewal and restoration. This spiritual retreat center focuses on fostering values of contemplation, silence, hospitality, rest, social justice and communion with nature; nurturing the journey inward to strengthen the journey outward. Rooted in the Christian and Jewish faiths, Penuel Ridge welcomes persons of all traditions.

Cindy, a recent Penuel Ridge visitor comments, “I came to Penuel Ridge seeking solitude and spiritual growth – I left with both goals met and the knowledge that this gem –this amazing place abounds with such positive energy and spiritual warmth.”

Penuel Ridge is able to offer restorative retreats to people like you, your brother, or even your friend over there in the gray cubical, all because of the volunteers who make it possible. Because Penuel Ridge has only one staff person, volunteers play a big role in helping to maintain the property, gardening, cooking, facilitating retreats for individuals experiencing homelessness, and more.

You can do your part to make Penuel Ridge a welcoming and restorative place for all. Here are ways to get involved with Penuel Ridge today:
