Encountering God Through Color & Movement


Retreat Description

Since the beginning of creation God made beauty from chaos using sound, light and color. 

In this creative retreat, you will meet God just as He was in the Garden of Eden. You will learn the secret language of color and movement. It will be a holistic approach to worship, using your mind, body and spirit to encounter God and worship Him.

With an emphasis on worship flags, you will learn two flag making techniques and handcraft your own worship tools that are yours to keep. You will have freedom to explore contemplative movement in wide open spaces in nature. 

The teaching time will include a Biblical foundation for worship and creative expression including worship flags and movement, understanding and exploring the spiritual realm of worship, and understanding your new identity in Jesus as a worshipper. Depending on the group, there may be extended sessions as we worship God together and experience His Presence. 

You will leave the retreat and know God better, know yourself more and understand the power and significance of worship.

Instructor Bio

Andrea York is the Creator and Designer for Catch the Fire Worship Flags. Andrea’s worship flags are among the best handmade flags available. She has perfected the design and construction for beautiful quality that will last for years.

Andrea has always had a special relationship with color. She has the rare gift of synethesia, a psychological phenomenon of intertwining color and sound. Andrea literally “sees” color for each sound.

Throughout her life she would see colors dance on sound waves during worship, but the churches she attended did not express worship with dancing or worship flags. When she attended a church where worship flags were used, in her mid 30s, Andrea knew she had found her place.

Andrea set out to learn everything she could about worship flags from the Bible, and in the process, learned the art of flagging worship.

Today, Andrea worships around the world with her worship flags, from the coastlines of the Pacific Ocean, to the mountain tops in Tibet, and is regularly invited to teach and help draw other worshippers into a Worship Renaissance – encountering God through color and movement.
