Join us for an amazing weekend at the Hilton Garden Hotel, Pismo Beach. We will be staying at the hotel, while our main sessions are nearby at the Arroyo Grande Community Center -800 W. Branch Street, Arroyo Grande, CA. This retreat is exclusively designed for ministers’ wives. Our retreat offers a unique opportunity to connect with other ministers’ wives, share experiences, and build lasting friendships. Immerse yourself in inspiring teaching, engaging discussions, and uplifting worship sessions. Take a break from your busy schedule and indulge in refreshing activities such as beach walks, heartfelt conversations, and great food. We will have worship with Charlin Neal, and hear teaching from fellow pastors’ wives such as Kate Garcia and others.
