In our triumphs, struggles, joys, laments, and brokenness, we are altogether beautiful. Let us join in retreat for a time of meaningful worship, connection, rest and rejuvenation. You’ll experience sacred community as we learn, grow, inspire, and build friendships with other women across the Central Texas. For two nights and three days, we’ll worship our God, abide in the grace of Jesus Christ, and be surrounded by the Holy Spirit as we are altogether beautiful. 


Retreat highlights include: 

Four unforgettable messages with preaching by Rev. Yevette Christy, Rev. Estee Valendy, Rev. Melissa Turkett, and Rev. Lara Franklin, including worship leadership from clergywomen and laity across Central Texas. Powerful worship led by worship leader Holly Brower; and many breakout sessions including “Art as Spiritual Practice,” led by Rev. Erin Sloan Jackson and “Money Matters,” led by Rev. Amy Tate-Almy.
