About our Retreat...

The world today is changing. Each day brings new and more devastating news than the last. Many feel broken and lost.  What can we do? Where can we turn? Who can we trust?  JESUS.  Jesus is all you need.
 
Ladies, we invite you to get away from it all…even if only for a day or two…at our 2016 Ohio Conference Women’s Retreat.  This year we have a new venue and a new speaker: Pranitha Fielder, pastor for Discipleship and Congregational Care at the Sligo church in Maryland.  Pranitha will share her very personal journey of overcoming bias, stereotypes, and obstacles – persevering through adversity as she was called to serve Him.
 
Experience a joyful and encouraging retreat in the heart of Amish County as we explore our theme JESUS: You’re All I NeedSeptember 16-18, 2016 at the Shisler Conference Center in Wooster, Ohio.  Enjoy uplifting music and worship at every session.  Get back to nature Sabbath afternoon with a free trip to the Seacrest Arboretum and area parks.  Come together Saturday night in prayer with Ohio Prays.  Four meals are included this year as part of the complete weekend retreat package!

Let us show them God’s love in a practical way.
