Ministers’ Wives’ Retreat

October 16 @ 3:00 pm - October 17 @ 2:30 pm


“I am a Friend of God” What an encouragement to the minister’s wife who too often finds herself torn between too many identities and roles.

Jesus calls you, “friend!”

This year’s Ministers’ Wives’ Retreat will give you an opportunity to explore His promise of friendship and to relax in His loving arms as a Child of God.  Bask in the worship, teaching and breakout sessions led by fellow ministers’ wives.

This is YOUR weekend.
