What We Do


“You don’t get wormy apples off a healthy tree, nor good apples off a diseased tree. The health of the apple tells the health of the tree. You must begin with your own life-giving lives. It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds.”

Luke 6:43-44 (MSG)


The Abbey invites Christians in Colorado to deepen their life with God. An interdenominational ministry, the Abbey weaves together wisdom from various streams within the centuries of Christian tradition and practice to create space for Christians to encounter the living God. Our offerings include:


The Praxis

A 9-month journey inviting pastors and local faith leaders to receive rest, refreshment, and care for their own souls.
