We bring Hope and Healing through Reconciliation

“Whoever believes in Me, as scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:38

We all have bondages, burdens, brokenness, baggage and bitterness that block the rivers of living water from flowing in our lives.

When we’re dammed up inside nothing works well, individually or corporately. We’re blocked from experiencing true reconciliation with God, ourselves, in our relationships, in our communities, and in the world.

The work of the Pilgrim Center is to come alongside and help remove those blockages so the rivers of living water can freely flow in us and through us.

Our Ministry of Reconciliation in Action


Healing & Reconciliation Retreat

During this 3-day experience, a trained facilitation team gently and intentionally leads us into the transforming power of reconciliation.

We tell our stories, we’re re-introduced to God’s love, and our hope is miraculously restored through the free gift Jesus gives to the broken-hearted.

Heart of Reconciliation Retreat

The Heart of Reconciliation Retreat provides an opportunity to experience more briefly, yet still deeply, the transforming power of reconciliation in a full or half-day format.

Through engaging talks, testimonies, and extended times of reflection we are lead into our own hearts and the heart of Jesus to discover new pathways to hope and healing.

Living Reconciliation Evening

These events are highly experiential and interactive, introducing and exploring various aspects of reconciliation.

Our skilled presenters are motivated to activate and integrate the ministry of reconciliation into our daily lives and communities.


Practicing Reconciliation Forum

We believe reconciliation is more than a theoretical idea, it is an experiential reality. In order to grow together in this reality, we have established this forum in order to begin a dialogue about how we can practice reconciliation in our daily lives.


Preaching, Mentoring, & Mediation

Our Pilgrim Center President, and PCR team members, are available for preaching, teaching, and mentoring ministry to support churches and organizations in their peace and reconciliation efforts.

We partner with churches and organizations through mediation to help bring organic and organizational health and reconciliation in areas of conflict and relational breakdown.

How can we participate in this challenging and vital work?

The MCC is currently launching a 10-year community focused Reconciliation Initiative in Minnesota to repair foundations that have been devastated for generations.
