Flourish Women’s Leadership Retreat

Monday, August 12 – Wednesday, August 14, 2024

We are delighted to invite you to Maranatha’s second Flourish Women’s Leadership Retreat! Our goal is to encourage pastors’ wives and those leading women’s ministries in the local church to continue personally flourishing in their walk with the Lord!
