How is refresh retreat different than other events?

We work hard to create an atmosphere, community and schedule that allows you to encounter the Lord personally. This time is not only meant to be encouraging but also directive. Our hope and prayer is that the content and directed sessions would set you up to, 1) dream with the Lord, 2) hear his plans and strategies, and 3) be equipped with practical tools to help you walk out what He is speaking.

who is Refresh retreat for? 

Women (sorry boys) who desire to know and be activated in God’s kingdom purposes for their unique life.

 

Is there a keynote speaker?  

There will be speaking sessions, however, it will be Words shared by the women who are a part of Refresh that have a message in season for this retreat. There will not be one, highlighted guest speaker but rather a group of ordinary women allowing their extraordinary God to use their stories, gifts and abilities to minister to you.

 

How does the Refresh Retreat differ from a woman’s conference? 

The Refresh Retreat is designed to be interactive and requires more participation than a standard conference size would allow for. We have designed both days to have personal times of reflection, journaling, small group interaction, group meals etc. We are developing a community for the long haul. 

If I can’t make every Main Retreat session can I just come to some?  

We kindly ask that you would make room in your schedule to attend every main retreat session. As we will have many personalized moments as well as designated small groups that will meet throughout the two days, it is only fair to the rest of the attendees to participate in all sessions with us.

how far is the hotel from the dfw airport?

Roughly a 10 minute drive or Uber ride with no traffic.

 

are there places to eat near the hotel?

Yes! The Hilton Southlake is conveniently located in the heart of Southlake Town Square with loads of restaurants within walking distance. Click HERE for full list of restaurants and shops on the Square.

 

can I bring my baby?

Though we would absolutely love to cuddle your cute bundle of joy, we kindly ask that you make arrangements for childcare during all sessions. Thank you.

How can I help you with the event?

Great question, we are so glad you asked! The Refresh Retreat is all about participation. We ask that you would begin praying, even now, for the retreat, your sisters joining you there and that the Lord would move in our hearts in a unique but unified way. Come with a heart of expectancy to receive from the Lord but also a heart to serve and love those around you. We are building a community, not a weekend function.

 

If my schedule un-expectantly changes and I am not able to come, is my registration fee refundable?

Regretfully, we are unable to offer any refunds at this time. With the nature of the event being intimate and personalized, we are unable to offer any sort of refund. Please kindly notify us if you have a change in plans so we can adjust accordingly. 

  

If I come for a getaway by myself will I feel weird?

Not at all! Actually, some might be super jealous. The word Refresh says it all, you need to come and experience a reviving of your spirit, body and soul and if that means you and a huge bed with a quiet room to yourself... DO IT SISTER!

  

Should I wait until the last minute to register?

NO! Don’t do it! Just don’t. We only have 200 spots this year. Sadly, once we hit this number of registrations we will have to close registration until next year. Also, you will need to register on or before March 1st as that will be the cut off date if we do not reach capacity first. Since Refresh is about intimacy, depth and being personalized we have to be able to plan and account for a certain number by a certain date. So REGISTER TODAY!

  

Do I need to pay to park my car?  

No, there is free valet (tip not included) as well as plenty of self parking around the hotel.

 

What is the dress code? Is this the type of thing where it says “casual” but then everyone shows up in heels and I am wearing my slippers?

Well, who knows. As for me… I will be leaving my stilettos at home. Our goal is to be comfortable and enjoy the day in a more casual setting.  Whatever you want to wear that you can feel comfortable in is the perfect thing! Nothing fancy needed!
