February 9-10, 2018 – Sisterhood Leadership Retreat

It was a privilege hearing from Karen Hagan as she shared powerful messages, encouraging all women in the biblical truth of who they are and how to engage in leading from that identity. (Download her Friday night message, “The Wonder Woman Effect” notes.)

Dawna Johnson led guests in wonderful times of worship, and attendees gained insightful and practical tools during the Friday panel discussion and multiple Saturday workshops. Along with receiving resources, women had opportunities to spend time alone with God, shop, and enjoy networking with other leaders from across Minnesota.

  • Venue: Lake Geneva Christian Center – Alexandria, MN
  • Featured Speaker: Karen Hagan
  • Topic: Intentional Leadership
  • 13 Workshops Within 3 Tracks:
    • Practical Leadership
    • Spiritual Leadership
    • Self-Reflection as a Leader

Comments from 2018 SL Retreat

I came to the retreat still having some doubt about whether or not I am truly a leader. I left the retreat confident that I am a leader, feeling spiritually full and knowing that God spoke to me in many ways through the main sessions and the breakouts!

Incredible weekend all the way around! I was touched by all the stories of hope and healing. Karen Hagan was AMAZING! Fellowship was FUN-- all around great event.

Facebook Post

So many take aways! If I had to pick one it was that God created us with EVERYTHING we need to be or do what He has in store for us!

God was able to speak very clearly to me. Not only was my favorite verse, Gal 5:1, used in a phenomenal message, but literally the sisterhood of God's amazing women all coming together for His further calling and purpose. . . It left me so filled--from the team, the worship, and the outstanding break out sessions. I met some rockstar sistas, that’s for sure!!

[My favorite part and biggest takeaway was] Wonder woman, and we have all of the weapons we need inside us! We need to use them! Such a great weekend.

Where do I start? The entire weekend was amazing. So much fun meeting new friends and getting to share our dreams and visions with each other, along with our struggles and challenges in leadership.

Great retreat! Our group had a wonderful time. My biggest take away (there were a lot of them!) is being aware of what we bring into environments and situations with us. The potential effect - either positive or negative - of what we bring is so huge!

October 13, 2017 – Thrive Conference

  • Where: River’s Edge Convention Center – St. Cloud, MN
  • Speakers: Pastors Peter & Carolyn Haas
  • Session 1 Topic: “My Escalator is Broken”
    • Description: How do we lead ourselves, our families, our churches, and in our workplaces when nothing is turning out the way we expected? Just because God has a different timeline for our dreams doesn’t mean his love is missing. Get ready to laugh and cry as pastors Peter & Carolyn share an incredible miracle story that came out from one of their darkest leadership seasons.
  • Session 2 Topic: “The Happiness Switch”
    • Description: Did you know, God has a happiness switch that he can turn on or off in each of our lives? But why would God turn it off? And how can we get Him to turn it back on? Thankfully, the Bible gives clear examples of how we can get in sync with God and put our dreams back on the fast track. (Ecclesiastes 6; Daniel 4)
