Testimonies of Impact

The entire experience was something you must have. Highly impacting physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Women's Retreat Attendee

It was a great way to relax from the everyday, renew my strength, and restore my relationships with the Lord.
Refreshed Retreater

Perfect weekend to refresh my soul and give me a sense that God is still in control. It is sometimes very hard to sense that in the midst of all the everyday tasks.
Women's Ministry Coordinator
