Womens 2017 Fall Retreat

Do you ever find yourself circling the same mountain over and over? Your mountains will be different from the other. But there are days you find yourself stuck or fixated on the same issue, the same mind game, the same struggle. You wonder, how do I move from here to there?  Jessie Seneca will help you take the first step to leave behind all that holds you back from experiencing the fullness of God through True North and she will encourage you to be dictated by the internal strength that comes from the power of the Holy Spirit and Christ who lives in you as you’re drawn above.

Jessie Seneca felt God calling her into a speaking ministry for women in 1996 at a Women of Faith event. Through battling Cushings Syndrome, a life threatening disease, she knew there was more to just surviving, but that God was going to use her story in a way that would encourage women. At the time of her illness, it was hard to understand God’s will in it all, and even when she felt God’s call, she didn’t know what it was going to look like. Today, Jessie is enjoying the fruit of her obedience to God through full-time ministry. Jessie Seneca is a national speaker, author, leadership trainer and the founder of More of Him Ministries. She has a passion to help women experience God’s Word for themselves as she encourages you to move into a wholehearted lifestyle, one devoted fully to God. Jessie lives in Bethlehem, Pa with her husband, John, and has two daughters, Lauren, Sarah and two sons-in-law.

Please bring a snack or dessert to share with the group.


The retreat includes 5 meals (3 Saturday & 2 Sunday).  We are offering a Lodging option ($155) and a No Lodging option ($100).

For the most part, the rooms have a queen bed and some variation of twins and bunk beds.  All rooms will have a MINIMUM of 3-4 women & may have up to a max of 6.  If you have a roommate preference, we will try to honor that but if you do not and would like to make some new friends we will arrange it for you.  As needed, we may add groups of 2/3/4 together to make rooms of 5-6.

Free Activities

We have several fun and different things planned for our activity time.  No cost activities include games, open gym, hikes, prayer walk, DIY manicures, stretching/relaxation exercises, outdoor volleyball, and an accessory swap (if interested in this, bring a MAX of 5 good condition accessories to exchange).

Additional Cost Activities

You can also sign up for these additional activities on Saturday afternoon:  (For planning purposes, if you’d like to do the Massage or Craft Class, you will need to preregister & prepay for them now as you register.)

  • Massage:  15 minutes for $15 (pay now during registration).  After registering, you’ll be contacted with your timeslot.  (LIMITED SPACES available, so this activity may fill up.  If that's the case, your $15 would be returned to you)
  • Craft Class:  learn how to make an industrial wood chic sign & take home this new piece of décor for $25 (pay now during registration).  Sign options are “blessed”, “thankful”, and “grateful”.  Size is 17" x 9".
