RISE stands for:





We hope that at each retreat you will leave renewed and inspired for another year, and that while you are here you will submerge yourself into the Word and engage with your sisters in Christ.


The purpose for RISE is for women to understand and know they are significant to Jesus and they are significant in the body of Christ. Women have always played an integral role in the development of the Church. When women experience healing and wholeness it impacts their relationships and thereby impacts the landscape of the local church. Our purpose never changes, but the ways in which we celebrate our relationship to Christ are fresh and relevant each year.
