Renewal Information and Requirements

Please read carefully!

A Come before Winter Renewal is for any English-speaking (fluent enough to grasp the lessons with minimal help) female missionary, missionary’s wife, minister’s wife, church leader’s wife, or any woman who day-in-day-out accepts the responsibility of mentoring others in the church.

  • Participants must arrange their own transportation to the site of the renewal. Once you check in, lodging and meals will be provided free of charge. You will need to bring spending money for additional expenses such as snacks, shopping, or special offerings at the retreat center.
  • The renewal and all accommodations are at Barnabas Landing, Keats Island, British Columbia. We will provide double or triple occupancy rooms. Those registering later will likely be assigned loft accommodations. Bring comfortable clothing, a notepad, and your Bible. Other materials will be provided.
  • To respond, fill out and submit the application form which follows this information. Spaces are limited to 46 participants, and you will be advised when your application has been reviewed and accepted. Direct any additional questions to our registrar at
  • Plan to arrive at Keats Island after lunch on Monday, March 11, 2013. Registration will begin at 3:30 p.m. Come before Winter will pay for lodging Monday through Thursday nights. All participants will check out on March 15, the last meal being lunch on Friday.
  • Participants should be present when the renewal begins at 3:30 p.m. on, March 11, and should remain for the entire event. Generally, we do not accept registrations from those unable to commit to the entire program. All sessions, including the first and final events of the renewal, are significant to the program. We cannot begin until everyone is present, so we thank you in advance for making the appropriate travel arrangements to ensure your full participation.
This renewal is offered free of charge to you, if your application is accepted and you attend. Spaces are limited. Because of this, we must maintain a strict cancellation policy. When you return this survey, you are indicating your understanding that by canceling this reservation after February 1, 2013, you will be billed for expenses incurred on your behalf by Come before Winter. This will be at least $750.00 USD, depending on the date of your cancellation.
