The Story of a Miracle

Serenity Retreat is a miracle. Inspired through a divine message, it incorporates the power of healing at its very core. During a moment of prayer, He planted a vision in Kathy Eason’s mind: “to set aside a place where God can heal his people.” It would be a special retreat, where they would experience a renewal of their minds and a release from their pain through the healing power of God. This was the catalyst for the Serenity Retreat we know today.

  • May 2000 – Serenity Retreat opened at the Garden Villas United Methodist Church
  • 2005 Serenity Retreat moved to central Houston, hosted by Garden Oaks Baptist Church.
  • 2010 Purchased land outside of Bellville, TX for an overnight retreat center
  • 2013 Opened the Lodge at Serenity Retreat Bellville
  • 2016 Opened Restoration House, Hope House, Grace Chapel and office space at Serenity Retreat Bellville
