A place to be surprised by God.

The Hollis Renewal Center provides a welcoming

environment and experience for ​individuals and groups seeking spiritual growth and renewal.

Hollis is 153 acres of secluded wooded land located 20 minutes west of downtown Kansas City with facilities

for retreats, workshops, meetings and outdoor activities.  Over five miles of hiking trails crisscross

the property and East Mission Creek flows from its north to south.

Hollis Renewal Center has provides "a time and place apart" for individuals, small groups

and organizations to pause and reflect on their mission. It embodies hospitality and gives guests

the time and space to be transformed from a collection of individuals into a community.


We take very seriously the gifts of time, land, buildings and resources as we use them wisely and care for

their sustainability into the future.  Hollis is a place for prayer and hospitality to provide opportunities for reflection,

learning, and renewal for groups and individuals.

What is Hollis?

Who is Hollis?

The logo represents Hollis Renewal Center as a Christian Witness

dedicated to growth and wholeness in Christian living and to the centrality of Christ in life,

here, represented by the cross. The cross is entwined with a Mobius Strip

which has no inside and no outside, no beginning and no end.
