RETREATS AND INSPIRATION
Our retreat offerings create a quiet space with extended time for each woman to cultivate her spiritual practices and connection to Christ so that she might live or lead more wholeheartedly.
Setting aside time in God’s presence, away from the hurry and noise of your life, gives space for you to deepen your relationship with Christ, to hear his direction for a current area of question, opportunity, or struggle, or to simply rest and renew.
Our retreats are begun and grounded in prayer and a Scripture meditation centered on the goals for the day, and then time is given for individual prayer, rest, and listening. To lessen distractions, we look for locations that are reflective and spacious.
You may participate in one of our scheduled retreats in your area. We are also available to work with you to design a retreat for your ministry, organization, or team. We do not yet have a permanent location for our retreats, but we are willing to be creative and to work with new site hosts!
