Pillar Network Women's Retreat 2017 Details


We are excited that the Pillar Network Women's Retreat is only a few months away! Our desire at the Pillar Network is to care not only for the souls of our pastors and church planters, but also for their wives and for all the women involved in the Pillar Network and in church planting. Our prayer is that this retreat would be a refreshing and edifying time and that it would give women in the Pillar Network an opportunity to be equipped, cared for, and encouraged in their unique callings.  Spaces are limited so be sure to reserve your spot today by registering here. Please email Jennaif you have any questions. Who: The Pillar Network Women's Retreat is for pastor's wives, church planter's wives, and female staff members involved in the Pillar Network

Where: The beautiful Charleston, SC! We will be staying in two conjoined houses in downtown Charleston

When: June 7-9, 2017

How much: The retreat is $125/person and that includes housing, 2 breakfasts, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner

We will be welcoming Kelley Ulrich as our speaker. Kelley has been married to John for 27 years and they have 2 children: Elisabeth (23) and Calvin (21). John is the pastor at the Church at Perry Creek in Raleigh, NC. Kelley was born in Wichita, KS and did not grow up in a Christian family. She attended Wichita State University and studied International Relations and Spanish and then God sent her to Africa!

Kelley was a missionary for 10 years to Zimbabwe where several things happened: She was gored by a bush pig, charged by an elephant (more than once), attacked by an African door mouse, witnessed some of the most stunningly beautiful and tragically heartbreaking things on earth, and experienced the “body of Christ” for the first time in her life. She likes to say “I grew up in Zimbabwe.”

Her greatest gifts in life have been unexpected surprises- things the Lord did for her when she had other plans for herself!

Kelley will be teaching from the book of Ephesians about "Life on the Battlefield." For those of us who get discouraged, for those of us who struggle in our relationships, and for those of us who are weary and footsore from the battle that is ministry, Ephesians has so much to offer.
