Ladies' Retreat

Proverbs 31 speaks so beautifully to the character and priorities that a godly woman possesses. We live in a society that so often scrutinizes us for what we think, how we look and what we wear. Being a woman of God allows us to be confident in who we are and what He created us to be. Whether you are single, married, a mother, a grandmother, a widow, or any combination of those, our annual Ladies' Retreat will speak to your heart and strengthen your spirit. Being a daughter of the King and a chosen woman in His kingdom is a blessing and an honor that should encourage us to hold our heads up high and praise Him for who we are and what He has created. Our annual Ladies' Retreat is designed to encourage the women at Prestoncrest each year. It helps ladies both discover different areas of need for service in His kingdom as they also find new insights to grow in their own relationship with our heavenly father.

2016 Ladies' Retreat: November 4th & 5th

Registration begins September 25th!

BE BOLD. BE BRAVE. BE YOU. What do these words mean to you? To Esther, it was God calling her to save her people... but she she was terrified! We’ve all been there. Esther couldn’t have saved her people without relying on God to give her the courage to be brave and bold, even though her circumstances seemed impossible. Do you believe God can do the same for you? He can!

This year’s theme is based on Esther 4:4, “ Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.”

Only the One who has the ultimate strength and courage can give it to you, so you can BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE YOU and take hold of the moments for which YOU have been created! We weren’t made to tackle this life alone. Are you holding back instead of braving a new adventure? Are you struggling with a new challenge, or is a lifelong challenge leaving you weary? We all have something in our life that needs GOD’s perfect strength. Join us for a refreshing weekend filled with insights and encouragement. Spend time with speakers & friends who will encourage & remind us how much God wants to be OUR strength… no matter what.

Registration can be done online any time by clicking below, or by filling out one of the brochures available at the table in the foyer, beginning September 25th.

Guest Speaker: Jennifer Pool

Jennifer & her husband, Matt, have been members at Prestoncrest for many years. Jennifer’s life as a mother, wife, uber-volunteer, & Christian are all wrapped up into a fun & encouraging package that many at Prestoncrest are blessed to call “friend.” Jennifer will be introducing our theme & we look forward to hearing what it means to her to BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE YOU.

Guest Speaker: Julie Weil • www.notjustmefoundation.org

We met Julie at our 2010 retreat and learned about her journey of healing & victory. Since then, she has has started a foundation supporting victimized women. We’ll hear how God is using Julie with this new ministry, and the proceeds from our raffle will go toward this wonderful organization, as well. You can read about Julie’s story, her journey, and this foundation’s work at www.notjustmefoundation.org.

Keynote Speaker: Becky Brooks (One of our all-time favorite speakers... and she’s back!)

Becky is an accomplished speaker who learned to love teaching the Word of God as a Jr. High child on the continent of Africa. It was there she became aware of a hunger people have for His Word. She has addressed women across the country, challenging them to seek first our God, believing that all things will be added. Becky encourages women to get real, to genuinely seek God and know Him. She and her husband are parents of 4 children - Payton, Benjamin, Eden, & Shelby Grace.
