SOUL

"Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him."
Psalm 62:1

About Our Programs

The AWA provides week-long Men's, Women’s, Family and Marriage programs in Northwestern Colorado for our military, veterans and first responders. These mountain retreats provide an opportunity for our nation’s warriors to confront and heal moral injuries.

 

Moral injuries have become the unspoken price paid by those protecting our freedoms and liberties at home and abroad. They are unseen and lead to catastrophic pain and loss of life after the war ends.

 

Through original curriculum and teaching sessions, prayer and meditation, horseback riding, outdoor adventure, and time for reflection, each warrior is able to encounter God in an entirely new way. They are equipped with the tools needed to face life’s challenges and are able to find brothers and sisters to have their back when the fight gets tough.
