NEW DATE:  SEPTEMBER 11-13, 2020


We need to be brave as Christian women in our world today.   The landscape of our culture has changed dramatically; it is almost as though we have been dropped into a foreign land.   So, how do we navigate this new landscape with a sense of confidence, direction or joy?    Join us as we look at God’s calling for His daughters living in the 21st century.

Speaker: Dawn Gould, Director of Women's Ministries at Mt. Gilead

Dawn grew up in Washington State and met her husband, Dave, at Seattle Pacific University.  They have lived at Mt. Gilead for the past 33 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 six-year-old grandson  Jeremiah and four-year- old granddaughter Everleigh!

The Bible is an integral part of the believer's walk with God.  How can we understand the Bible and apply it to our lives?  Join us as we learn to study the Bible for maximum impact in our lives.  “God’s word is an indispensable weapon.”  Ephesians 6:15  The MESSAGE

Pre-Conference Luncheon Theme: Our Indispensable Weapon

Pre-Conference Speaker:  Jan Wells

Jan Wells is an author and teacher of the Word of God with a depth of understanding that is rare and captivating. She is passionate about helping women understand the full cultural and historic context of Scripture while making it relevant to our current day lives. Her heart of compassion, blended with her confidence in the wisdom and love of God, provides incredible encouragement. Jan and her husband have two children and six grandchildren.


We are all about influencing the next generation  for Jesus.  We encourage you to invite your teenage daughters and granddaughters ages 13+ to attend Women's Retreat.  Teenagers must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

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!


Mt. Gilead is a Christian camp and conference center in northern California. We rent our facilities to churches and other Christian organizations. We also run summer camps for children from 1st grade-12th grade. Throughout the year, we host quality Christian programs for adults.
