Join us for two days and one night at the Pu’u Kahea Conference Center in Waianae for a retreat just for women.
Come and join women of all ages and walks of life as we worship, fellowship, learn and grow in God’s Word together. Our theme is “Filled to Overflow” from 1 Thessalonians 3:12.
Our guest speakers are Chris Adams and Kathy Morales. Chris served as Lifeway’s Women’s Ministry Specialist for over 20 years. Kathy is the Women’s Ministry Specialist for the Canada National Baptist Convention. Please see photos and more information about our guest speakers below. We will also have breakout sessions led by some of our very own HPBC women!
The goal of this retreat is to be challenged by the speakers and each other to allow God to fill us up with His Living Water so that it can overflow from us into our circles of influence – our families, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and people we meet by divine appointment.
Your Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention is sponsoring this event. It is funded by your church’s gifts to the Cooperative Program.
