The Christward Ministry at Questhaven Retreat

A Training and Retreat Center Devoted to Christian Mysticism

A time arrives in the life of every true seeker when it is not enough to simply believe in God. The greatest need is to know God.
bioFlower A. Newhouse

Questhaven is a non-denominational Christian retreat nestled among the coastal hills of San Diego County. Founded in 1940 by Flower and Lawrence Newhouse, its 655 acres of pristine wilderness offer worship, study and renewal in a beautiful nature setting. As home to the Christward Ministry and Questhaven Academy, Questhaven is a training center for students who seek a deeper study into the path of Christian Mysticism. Flower taught that the Lord Christ offers us the greatest pattern to our own unfolding and to the full awakening of God within. Thus, every inch of this holy ground is consecrated to the Lord Christ forever and His call for the spiritualizing, healing and transformation of all life.
