Cornerstone Lodge Leadership Ministry

We provide a safe, confidential, and caring counseling retreat for hurting pastors, their wives, and for other leaders in the Christian life at our lovely retreat center near the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Our 2 main retreats are the "Psalm 40 Retreat" (which is a 5-day counseling retreat) and the "3-Strands Restoration Retreat" (which is a more intensive 15-day retreat, especially designed for working with those who struggle with several forms of internet addiction). Our follow-up program, Champions2Heroes,, provides mentor-coaching for as long as 2 years, if necessary. Learn more about our counseling program also at
