Ontario Christian Retreat Centers is a list of some Christian retreats in Ontario provided by Christian counsellor: George Hartwell. 

Just to be clear, these retreat centers are not directly affiliated with or endorsed by George Hartwell or Agape Christian counselling or Life Transformation Retreats.  I becamse interested because of the intensive therapeutic marriage counselling and intensive therapeutic individual therapy that I do.  My original vision was to do this intensive Christian therapy away form my office at a retreat center.  To save costs and avoid the complex arrangments of doing this most of my intensive Christian marriage retreats or an intensive Christian individual therapeutic retreat is done at my Mississauga office.

To be included e-mail George your information and explain what services you provide that qualify you as a Christian retreat centre.

These Christian Retreat Centers are listed in alphabetical order and provided as a general reference to Christian Retreats in Ontario, Canada.  This is provided for you by George Hartwell as information if you are searching for a Christian retreat center in Ontario.
