Called to Lead Retreat

Rev. Crystal July 22, 2014 0 comments

Imagine a weekend away from home, a time where you can bask in the presence of God, and a time where you are surrounded by other women who are called to leadership in the church. Imagine being able to quietly journal, sit outdoors in the warm sunlight, go on a personal prayer walk, or sit with a friend and talk about your calling.

This year Women of Vision Leadership is going to be hosting a personal retreat for Pentecostal women in leadership. The retreat will be geared toward women who are on the track toward ministerial licensing, or who have already been licensed as ministers. The retreat is going to be a small retreat, at most 10-20 people, and is going to be a great time of refreshing. The retreat will be held in Missouri, hopefully in a central location. It will start on a Friday evening, and will go into the day on Saturday. We are hoping to book a place for Winter 2015. There will be a few training sessions, and a commissioning/communion time at the end of the retreat. Are you interested in attending a small retreat like this? There will be more information to come at crystalschmalz.com in the upcoming weeks as the website is developed, and you are also invited to email Crystal Schmalz at womenofvisionleadership@gmail.com for more information and details. You will be able to sign up for the retreat, and see some of the details of the retreat. Keep watching out for “Called to Lead,” a retreat aimed for Pentecostal women leaders!
