Celebration of Women in Church Leadership
Saturday, March 4th 2017
8:30 am-4:00 pm Western Theological Seminary
This full-day retreat will celebrate, encourage and equip women, creating sacred space for us to connect with each other, our stories and God’s plan for us in authentic, healing and transformative ways. During our time together, we’ll identify and honor our leadership gifts through interactive plenary sessions, Bible study, small group sharing, personal reflection, and prayer. We will also explore how we grow as leaders in beloved community…. community that both empowers and challenges us to live fully into God’s call on our lives. We will leave this day with tangible next steps on how to be co-creators with God and the broader church in the ongoing work of transformation, mission, and leadership.
The day will be facilitated by Rev. Liz Testa, the RCA’s coordinator for women’s transformation and leadership, and spiritual director Ms. Lesley Mazzotta. This event is open to all RCA and CRC women and ecumenical friends from all layers of leadership in the church and beyond. All generations are warmly invited to participate.
General registration: $30 Students/Seniors: $10 and includes meals and materials.

Please note this event coincides with downtown Holland’s annual Girlfriends Weekend and you may want to factor that into your plans. If you are traveling and seek overnight accommodations, we recommend you book early at hotels away from downtown (such as the DoubleTree or Residence Inn by Marriott) that still have rooms available.
