Women’s Getaway | Fall 2024

October 4-6, 2024

Sometimes as women we might feel depleted and in need of some encouragement, even a few moments to just catch our breath while we are ministered to through music. Our equipped weekend is designed to help women take that time. Friday night we start our evening with a concert of praise, Saturday morning and early afternoon is filled with breakout sessions, reflective of our theme for the weekend, sessions that will encourage us and challenge us. Saturday evening and Sunday morning our plenary teacher will open God’s word and help us dig into His word. Returning home equipped to live out your own faith vibrantly is our prayer.

Read about Bronwyn Baker

Bronwyn Baker is a singer, worship leader, and vocal coach who loves Jesus, singing, leading worship, and helping others to love Jesus and worship Him wholeheartedly! Raised as a Baptist Pastor’s kid, Bronwyn was blessed to grow up under the influence of solid biblical teaching and Christian living, and came to know and follow Jesus as her personal Lord and Saviour at the age of 5. Bronwyn’s earliest memories involved singing and the pursuit to sing for Jesus, and following in her father’s footsteps, she has served the Lord vocationally and non-vocationally for over two decades! Bronwyn studied at Liberty University in Virginia where she obtained her Baccalaureate and Master’s degrees in Music and Worship Leadership, and where she also had the privilege to tour internationally with Liberty’s premiere ministry team, “the Sounds of Liberty,” and an affiliated ministry called “Living Proof and Primary Focus.” Though blessed in countless ways, Bronwyn’s life has not been without challenges, trials, and deep disappointments, yet she has come to learn with ever-increasing measure the trustworthiness, faithfulness, and goodness of our great God. An unquenchable desire to respond – to worship – has been birthed deep in Bronwyn’s heart, and set her on the path she believes the Lord has prepared for her. By God’s grace and for His glory and fame alone, Bronwyn hopes that her song and story would spark your own fresh song and story… that many will SEE and FEAR and put their TRUST in the LORD (Psalm 40:1-3)!

“In the week leading up to the MBC women’s retreat, I encountered several challenges which were both mentally and emotionally draining. As I packed my bags on late Friday afternoon, I realized that God had already known that I needed an unhurried period of rest, fellowship and bible teaching in the upcoming weekend. Earlier this year, God sent a friend to invite me to attend the retreat with her. The retreat’s message on forgiveness introduced new perspectives that I had not considered before. Again, with the previous week’s events and upcoming decisions still weighing heavily on my heart, I realized that God already knew what I needed to hear, as He orchestrated the retreat including speaker and message. Although my husband was supportive of me attending the retreat, it was not easy for me to let go and walk away from my responsibilities for the weekend. As I pondered upon the new lessons that God was teaching me during the retreat, I felt uplifted and encouraged that God could help me to head home to be a better wife, mother, employee and friend. All praise to our all-knowing and loving Father.”
