“Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
Seeking the Peace of Our City Retreats are a series of one-day “urban immersion” retreats hosted by Mile High Ministries and Centering Way. Each retreat is built around around a key word - and related perspectives and practices - that represents how we have grown to think about life and ministry in our city.
Seeking the Peace retreats will combine reflective walks around a particular neighborhood, conversation about changes and trends in our city, and the practice of spiritual exercises chosen to help nurture attentiveness and wholeness in our lives as we "seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which God has brought us" (Jeremiah 29:7).

Denver’s Capitol Hill Neighborhood is a place full of history, allure, and intriguing characters. Come explore this part of the city on a day-long retreat that is part walking tour, part theological teaching and part spiritual practice. This retreat will be filled with leaders from around the Denver Metro Area seeking to get a better glimpse of God’s shalom at work through the prophetic imagination of people both past and present.
Playground - North Side/Highlands neighborhood
We call this retreat Playground. Many of us have been trained to see the city as a battleground – the arena of conflict between good and evil, where everything becomes a win/lose proposition. To approach the city as a playground, we are asking if there is a deeper reality than "us versus them."
Place - Cole neighborhood
