Our Mission

Jericho Hills and Retreat Center is a mission work of Iowa Christian Union providing the opportunity to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unbelievers and to enrich the lives of believers by providing the facility and atmosphere to teach, train, study and fellowship for the glory of God!

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.  Matthew 28:19-20
