You can expect great worship, encouraging messages, delicious food, comfortable lodging, plenty of time to enjoy activities and catch up with old friends or make new ones! This year’s theme is “Pursuing God to Find Our Calling.” Our calling is an everyday thing, not just a single act of service. Our rebellious spirit can take on our calling and push it past the Lord’s desire, trying to force it to be our identity and missing the intimacy we NEED in our relationship with our Father.
Whether you are coming by yourself, with your family, or with a group of ladies from church, all ladies are welcome.

Meet the Worship Leaders
Lia Kauffman and Maria Ray met on an eight-month missions trip to Indonesia in 2012. Their friendship quickly developed over hours of jam sessions and Asian adventures. Now, years later, both Lia and Maria live in the Baltimore area and are still close friends! In 2014, Lia and Maria prayed that God would teach them about worship, and he has been answering that prayer! Since 2015, both Lia and Maria have been leading worship regularly at their churches.
