I'm Still Standing Women's Retreat


  • Blue Mountain Conference Centre (map)

This retreat is for women who have been given a dream or vision by God but feel that in order to pursue their calling they need to address past trauma, childhood experiences, pain, broken relationships and other concerns of the heart. On this retreat, we will let God do His work in us, so that He can work through us in the way that He intended. Join us as we commit to a journey of wholeness and freedom in Jesus so that His will for our lives can be fulfilled.

We will be addressing tough issues but we will be doing so surrounded by mountains, nature and self-care activities...Girls trip!
