Who We Are

Our Mission

The mission of Lake Brownwood Christian retreat is to be a Sanctuary for spiritual growth, personal development, training and service in a natural setting and atmosphere.

Our History

Founded in 1947, Lake Brownwood Christian Retreat was established as a Christ centered camp where both youth and adults could come for spiritual growth and fellowship. Now, more than 65 years later, we are still welcoming guests to the Retreat seeking to spend time with God, reconnect with their brothers and sisters in Christ or simply to get away from the hectic day-to-day we call life.

Situated on a peninsula overlooking beautiful Lake Brownwood in Central Texas, wonderful views abound from sunrise to sunset. Our natural, wooded setting inspires and moves individuals to grow in their spiritual relationship. With our walking trails, prayer garden, outdoor worship area, campfire circle, sports complex and water activities, everyone is sure to find their little piece of heaven on earth.

Located in the Heart of Texas, LBCR is within a few hours drive from most parts of the state. The Retreat of the Central Area, welcomes all denominations of Christian faith.


LBCR mainly receives groups from all over Texas as well as some from surrounding states. LBCR caters not only to Church groups but to Faith Based Alcohol Anonymous groups, Prison Ministries, Inner City groups, Cancer awareness groups, Faith based teen groups and college Ministries.
