Retreat & Conference Center

Mission Training International, located far from the crowds in Palmer Lake, is the perfect all-inclusive residential location for church, missions and non-profit group retreats, in-house training, meetings, and conferences in all seasons. It is less than ten minutes from I-25, just thirty minutes from downtown Colorado Springs and only an hour from Denver.

Our purpose built facility, completed in 2002, offers a light and airy environment all under one roof. The Ben Lomond Mountain provides a rocky backdrop in a spectacular Front Range setting – it’s just the sort of surroundings you need for inspiration and encouragement.


Here are some facts about MTI’s retreat and conference facility.
