Welcome! Whether you are new to Women's Ministries or a seasoned mentor, you have come to the right place for Women's Ministries in Ohio!


Life happens, life changes, we will have highs and lows, feast and famine and no matter what our best laid plans are, they often go out the window. Jesus, our Creator, our Friend, recognizes that we, in our weakened human state need special moments with Him. This weekend is one of those moments. We are going to spend some time sitting at the feet of Jesus and drinking in His love and presence that we might become refreshed and able to go back and face our unique challenges.
Early-Bird full-weekend price, excluding lodging, is $95; $60 if you are only able to attend on Sabbath. Lodging is available at Mohaven, beginning at $40/night for a lodge room (double occupancy). A block of rooms is also available at the Holiday Inn Express in Mount Vernon. Enjoy the best Mohaven has to offer with horseback riding, canoe or kayak rides, and even a hayride!
