Okontoe is a Place for You…

…to connect with Jesus, His family and His creation so you can be restored, transformed and equipped for His Kingdom purpose.

We are a Christian retreat and discipleship ministry, located on 80 acres of pristine wilderness in northeast Minnesota.

We want nothing more than to see you come to Okontoe to draw closer to the Lord and know His love for you. To leave refreshed, restored and in a closer relationship with Him and with your loved ones.

Turn off your phone and open your eyes again to the wonderful creation God’s placed us in. There’s nothing better!

You may rediscover His creation here. You may rediscover your spouse, your family…even yourself and His purpose for your life.

We invite you to come, be refreshed, take time with the Lord—whether alone, with your spouse, with your family or with friends.

We invite you to turn your busy life off for a while.

Be with Him, quiet your heart, read His word, listen to Him—He’ll transform your life!

“Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” ~ Jesus (Mark 6:31)

Okontoe Sleigh Rides

We’re sorry, but Okontoe’s Sleigh Ride business permanently closed at the end of the 2015 season. We no longer have the horses, sleighs or gear. (Unfortunately, there are several online sources that still advertise them, which we’re not able to control.)
