Elijah Center Croatia
Serving the church in the Balkans and beyond
The Elijah Center will exist to offer an unhurried space to hear the still, small voice of God in beautiful natural surroundings and an intimate, transformative atmosphere.
Our vision is to offer weekend and week-long retreats for groups. We will uniquely benefit the Christian community by having a Bible teacher in residence who could provide teaching tailored to the groups’ needs and provide a much needed break for church leaders on retreat with their congregations. We would also focus on keeping the schedule light, to allow plenty of time for rest, contemplation, and conversation with guided questions. We hope that every person would experience the peace and transformation of the gospel every time they visit.
With 16 double en-suite rooms, situated on the beautiful Pelješac Peninsula surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, this facility is at the foot of Mount St. Elijah and just a few minutes' walk from the Adriatic Sea. We have seen how Croatians connect with God through nature and are convinced that the setting here is particularly conducive to the gospel encounters we are longing to see.
