Freedom to live the life God created you to live - can you imagine what that would be like for you? During a Women’s Encounter weekend women encounter Christ in ways that are perhaps new or long since felt.  This is not another typical church retreat! Through Biblical teaching, testimonies and worship we’ll dive deep into what it means to be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ.   You’ll learn more about yourself, the body of believers around you, and most importantly - the God who created you!

Whether your relationship with Christ is new or old, we firmly believe this weekend will be a blessing to you and will help you understand what freedom looks like for you in every area of your life. It is a weekend where you have an opportunity to get away with other women and experience God in a real, intimate, and personal way. If you come with a humble and open heart - ready to allow God to change you from the inside out - your life will never be the same!
