In order to live the abundant life that Jesus offers his followers, two things are essential:  Lack of fear and loads of joy.  That’s what we will focus on for our 27th Annual Weekend Getaway.  From women who know what this fearless joy looks like because they’ve lived it, you’ll hear messages and workshops that will equip and encourage you to get rid of what keeps you in bondage, and live in the unbounded joy that Jesus gives.

Jill Briscoe has great wisdom to share with us from a life of serving Jesus—a life filled with joy even in the midst of much pain.  Angela Yuan’s story of unrelenting prayer for a prodigal son will amaze and inspire you.   Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh will tell of being imprisoned in Iran for their faith in Jesus Christ—truly persecuted for the Gospel.

Combine that with great music, encouraging fellowship and lots of laughter in a lovely setting, and you have a weekend of spiritual renewal.  I encourage you to take a break from the busyness of life and join us for our 27th Annual Weekend Getaway where you will leave with a lighter load and a heart full of joy.

1 Peter 1:8:  Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.
