SUSTAINED BY GOD

April 29-May 1, 2022

 

Jesus offers His unlimited resources of strength, courage, endurance and peace so that we can withstand the pressures of these unprecedented times.  Come be refreshed, encouraged and equipped we gather together and for Women's Retreat 2022 "Sustained by God"

Dawn grew up in Washington State and met her husband, Dave, at Seattle Pacific University.  They have lived at Mt. Gilead for the past 35 years and raised their three children at camp.  Dawn truly loves her job as she is able to walk beside women who find freedom in Christ and begin using their gifts to serve the Lord.  She is devoted to equipping the next generation to lead with humility, holiness and dependence on Christ. She is also devoted to being a grandma to her 8 year old grandson Jeremiah and 6 year old granddaughter Everleigh!

PLEASE NOTE:

Our heart is to give women a break and provide for them a place to rest and relax, free from their usual responsibilities. To that end, we respectfully request that little ones remain at home so that moms and others attending the retreat can fully focus on what the Lord has for them and go home refreshed and encouraged. THANK YOU!
