Retreats, Conferences and Getaways

Embracing Purpose is a study that revolutionizes the way women look at life and ministry, and we believe it should make its way to every women’s ministry that has a heart to empower and unleash women to do incredible things for God. One of the best ways to launch the Embracing Purpose program is to bring author and founder Linda Slaton to your church to lead a weekend women’s retreat, conference or getaway. Contact us now to help your women build relationships with each other and begin the journey to purpose all at the same time.

From Linda Slaton, author of “Embracing Purpose” and “There’s More”
“After having hosted several Fast Tracks, let me tell you – this getaway is a total blast! And it gives you a jumpstart on finding, loving and living your God-given purpose. Delving into thought-provoking material with like-minded women, away from everyday distractions, is incredibly powerful. The synergy and creativity that bubbles forth is amazing and the relationships go deep quickly. 

Thank you for setting aside this time — or considering doing so—to focus on what truly matters: discovering your God-given purpose and partnering with Him in something eternally significant. What could be more worthy of our time?”
