Women of Ministry

June 10-12, 2024

Do you have a heart for ministry? Do you serve in your local church or a parachurch organization? Come be a part of our Women of Ministry retreat that is designed to support women who serve in these roles. By joining us this weekend, you will have the opportunity to meet others in ministry who can relate to your situation and sit under the teaching of women who have similar experiences. You will be cared for in our cozy accommodations, enjoy delicious food, while finding moments to relax and unwind. Our hope is that you will walk away feeling encouraged and refreshed, ready to continue serving the body of Christ.

But are you actually serving in a ministry role?

Many women find it challenging to label themselves in this way. Let us put your mind at ease. It does not matter if you are serving part time or full time, volunteer or paid, new to ministry or have many years experience. Women serve in many different ways and if you are actively serving the body of Christ, you are a woman of ministry!

We have a compiled a list of some roles where women serve in ministry:

  • Pastors’ wives
  • Those serving in Christian organizations
  • Church administration and custodial staff
  • Teachers
  • Camp ministry workers
  • Missionaries
  • Youth ministry
  • Board members
  • Children’s ministry
  • Worship leaders
  • … and way more!


Shannon Leibold

Read about Shannon Leibold

Shannon Leibold believes the greatest story ever told is the one found on the pages of Scripture. Captivated by God’s grand narrative of relentless redemption, she spends most of her free time immersed in the Bible, as a student, a teacher and a curriculum developer. As the founder of Scripture & Story, she is passionate about helping women navigate their way around the Bible and inspiring them to develop a deeper hunger for Scripture. She is currently in seminary working towards a Graduate Certificate of Theological Studies and considers herself a life-long learner. She’s the one frantically taking notes through every sermon, playing podcasts during every mundane task, and devouring theological books. She makes a home with her husband Kris and two teenage children in Ontario, Canada. She would love to connect with you on her websiteFacebook and Instagram.

Read about Hannah Maxson

Hannah Maxson is passionate about engaging and facilitating the Church in worship. Seeing God’s people worship Him in Spirit and in truth is the joy and privilege of leading with voices raised to the only one who is worthy (Jesus Christ!). Hannah has been burdened and striven to do this these past two and a half decades starting as a teen and serving in various worship leading/directing capacities over the years. Hannah is married to Ryan (Pastor at Riverside Baptist) and mom to three teenagers: Samuel, Melody and Hope. Hannah will be leading with a team of gifted women whose hearts are for Jesus. They look forward to going to the throne of grace with you in song. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God”. – Colossians 3:16
