Pastors Wives Retreat

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

Join Inspiration Hills on our 2 day retreat by sending your pastor's wife. Be a part of refreshing, encouraging, and strengthening your Pastor's wife through a retreat planned and created for her in mind.

Many friendships are created as other women share their ideas and connect with each other in the ministry their family has been called to. Take this opportunity to thank them and provide them an experience that will leave an impact on them!

This retreat is open to any woman whose husband is in vocational ministry. So, you can eitherpass this information along or register them for this event. You are sure to provide them an opportunity to find some rest & encouragement!
