Gather with other women's ministry leaders for training this fall at the Gather and Glean Women's Ministry Retreat.

For the last several years, I’ve been praying and seeking the Lord’s timing for a conference or retreat for women’s ministry leaders.

Knowing it was a bigger project than I could tackle on my own, I began to pray that the Lord would send me a helper.

Just over a year ago, the Lord answered the prayer via a Facebook message.  Christy Mc Collough sent me a message asking me to pray about something the Lord had laid on her heart – a retreat for women’s ministry leaders. The time had come!

Much prayer and a few phone conversations later, it was clear that God wanted us to move forward.

Last year we sought wise counsel, blanketed each step with prayer, and recruited an on-the-ground hostess for our first retreat, Amy Satterfield.

Hours were spent scouting out locations. Details were shared, calendars were coordinated, deposits made, and finally, the date and location were announced.

I am excited to announce that early-bird tickets are now on sale for the Gather and Glean Women’s Ministry Leader Retreat at beautiful Guntersville Lake Lodge in northern Alabama on September 26-28, 2019.

We would love for you to join us!

Here’s a quick video to give you a glimpse of what you can expect:


Your ticket price will include all programming, lodging (double occupancy), and five meals.

We have worked hard to keep the price as low as possible. We know that many women’s ministries are operating with little, if any, budget and want to encourage you to ask your Pastor if there are funds you can use to attend this women’s ministry training.

If you register in March, you’ll save $30 off of regular ticket prices ($295).

A wait-list will be started once we have sold our initial 60 tickets.

We’ve also created a Facebook group for those who are looking for a roommate, carpool, and additional information. You can join it here.

We would be grateful for your prayers as women register and final plans are made.
