The Wilderness Fellowship Ministries

Fostering Godly Intimacy

Our Mission

To provide a place of refuge, peace, restoration and hope, dedicated to help people establish intimacy with Jesus Christ and those they love.

Who We Are

In operation since 1972, the Wilderness Fellowship Ministries is a four-season ministry facility which provides a place of retreat and refreshment that fosters Godly intimacy. Nestled between two lakes, it is located 10 miles northwest of Frederic, Wisconsin on 250 acres of rolling wooded land with frontage on two good fishing lakes, miles of hiking trails, lots of wildlife and beauty.  Retreat facilities include personal prayer cabins, larger cabins for groups or families, a large meeting-retreat-fellowship facility, as well as many campsite spots. Some facilities are rustic and others are completely modern. We operate by donation only and have diligently worked to provide a place where God’s people can come away and hear His voice.

This is a place of ...

Refuge & Rest

Wilderness Fellowship Prayer Cabins - A Place of Refuge and Rest

“Come unto me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you Rest.” Jesus said that, and He is most certainly here in this place, waiting for you. He is waiting for you to lay your back pack of worries and weariness, hustle and hassle, cares and concerns, at His feet. When you do, He will replace it with a soft, white garment of light and praise.

Peace and Joy

Wilderness Fellowship - A Place of Peace and Joy

For “the Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His Love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

Restoration

Wilderness Fellowship - A Place of Restoration

Perhaps because so many prayers have gone up here, perhaps because of the freedom that solitude allows, you will find that tears flow easily here. They may be tears of sorrow or conviction, weariness or discouragement, praise, surrender or joy. Whatever their source, they will be tears that cleanse and release you in unforeseen ways.

Hope

Wilderness Fellowship - A Place of Hope

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11

Awe

Wilderness Fellowship - A Place of Awe

Tread softly here. You’ll see no burning bush or pillar of fire, yet the Holy One fills this place. Wait quietly before Him; He may want to do heart surgery on you, or teach you what it means to truly dwell under the shadow of the Almighty.

Worship

Wilderness Fellowship - A Place of Worship

All creation surrounding you is lifting its arms in praise to Creator God. How can you do otherwise.  Psalm 19

I love this place so much. I love to be able to go outside and not hear cars or see “busyness.” The stars at night are awesome, and I don’t want to leave. Log Cabin

It’ so nice to come to a place where you’re showered with God’s presence. You can actually feel the prayers over the land from years before! L.H.
