RENEW 2018

     Come expecting to be Refreshed ♦ Relaxed ♦ Renewed!


This year we are delighted to welcome Michele Pillar

Michele is an author, speaker, singer and 3-time Grammy and Dove nominee.  She has a testimony that everyone who has ever needed help to overcome anything should hear.  Her journey of courage began early in life while hiding under her twin bed to escape the effects of her parents’ addictions.  But when Michele looks back at those days she feels only gratitude.  “There is no better way to experience the powerful hand of God than to watch Him heal the human spirit.  Once healed, these negative experiences are dwarfed and God uses them to heal others.  I am no different than anyone else.  I just talk about true-to-life happenings in front of people.  God knew I would be restored, He would be glorified and others would be empowered and restored as well.” – Michele
                             Michele’s strong name recognition from her Contemporary Christian Music accomplishments and many #1 radio hits may be the bedrock of her ministry but is not what she’s leaning on to carry her new book, Untangled/The Truth Will Set You Free (BroadStreet Pub 2016).
                              Michele’s Two Minute Miracle Video Bible Devotional on FB reaches over 50k weekly and her latest endeavors are: Script Writer and Featured Gueson Keep The Faith, national radio broadcasts. To find out more about Michele and her ministry to women click here.

“God can heal anything, once we talk about it in a safe environment, expose it and look into God’s word and heart for healing.  
I love demystifying restoration with truth and humor and the power of God’s Holy Spirit touching women where they need healing.  
I trust God to do this every time I speak and sing.” -Michele

Are you concerned about your kids? Mom’s in Prayer groups meet for just one hour a week. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts and teachers are welcome to come learn how to pray for the children they love using scripture as a prayer tool. If your children are in a school or college, you will also be able to pray for their teachers, curriculum, and all that touches their lives in the academic world. There’s so much joy and comfort knowing our children are covered in prayer!
