Hi there! My name is Pastor Rhovonda Brown, the founder and executive director of Martha & Mary Ministries, Walking in Freedom! ™, co-pastor and co-founder of The Sanctuary Christian Fellowship Church, and the host of this year's retreat.
So what exactly is a retreat? Well, according to Merriam-Webster, a retreat is a period of group withdrawal for prayer, meditation, study, or instruction under a director.
My mission has always been to encourage women while motivating them to be all that God has called them to be. The same thing applies for this retreat. At the Walking in Freedom! Retreat you will be encouraged and motivated to be the unique and beautiful woman God has delicately and magnificently designed you to be. You will be refreshed and energized to serve God passionately and faithfully. You will be equipped with practical yet biblical principles for walking this tough Christian journey.
The retreat's theme is EMBRACE. It's time to embrace your freedom! I am inviting a few women (ages 18+) for a weekend getaway where we will F.O.C.U.S. on three components to living a life of freedom:
1. EMBRACE the freedom Christ gives you.
2. EMBRACE who you are in Christ.
3. EMBRACE your own unique journey.
We have secured our dates and location! Walking in Freedom! Women's Retreat 2017 will be Friday, September 22nd - Sunday September 24th. Your total cost for this unforgettable getaway will be $150.00. Registrants who make payment in full by April 30th will receive a signed copy of bestseller, Walking in Freedom! A Thirty-Day Devotional Journey for Women.
We will spend three days and two nights at Trinity Pines Conference Center, a Christ centered setting, in the Faith Lodge facility. It has four bedrooms with three sets of twin size bunk beds and a queen size bed in each bedroom (queen beds will be reserved for the elderly and/or those needing special assistance). Each sleeping area sleeps 6-7 for a total capacity of 24-28 guests. Each bedroom has a private restroom.
