Walk into any church, take a look around, and ask yourself this question: What is a godly woman? Don't listen to what is said, listen to the lives of the women present. What do we learn? A godly woman is...tired. For all she has been told to be is a good servant. Hasn’t “you are here to serve” been the church’s message to women?
And what about her heart?
Set deep in the heart of every woman are three core desires. Every woman longs for romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, and to be the beauty in the tale. It is for such that we were made.
Join us for our four-day event as we journey together into the deep mysteries of our feminine souls in order to recapture our hearts.
What is Captivating?
In our unguarded and private moments, our longings for more rise to the surface. We want more life. More hope. More love. More healing. More of Jesus! We know we are made for more. But what we don’t need more of is information. We do not need more knowledge about Jesus; we need an encounter with him. That is what the Captivating Retreat is all about.
Jesus calls us saying, “Come away with me, my beloved.” (Song of Songs 2:10)
You are invited to come away and join us in the beauty of Wales for a spacious time to go on a treasure hunt for the true heart of God and the unique, beautiful feminine heart that he has placed in you. Through teaching sessions, film clips, music, guided periods of reflection and journaling, worship and beauty, we're inviting you to take the risk of coming alive as a woman—God's captivating woman.

Due to the nature and depth of the content and experience, Captivating is not designed for youth. You must be at least eighteen years of age to attend.
Unfortunately, this retreat is not designed to offer childcare, and it is not able to provide for nursing moms. We do pray that God would supernaturally provide for your children while you are away, and for nursing moms we pray with all our heart that Jesus would make a way for you to participate in a future retreat.
During the registration process you will be able to indicate if you would like to be housed with other women you may be attending with, however, each woman will need to register herself individually as our system is not designed to register multiple participants through a single account.
IMPORTANT: Roommate requests can only be honored for standard registrants requesting other standard registrants and ensuite registrants requesting other ensuite registrants. We cannot room you together if you are not in the same type of room. We also cannot guarantee that your group will have a room to yourself. To accommodate all attendees you may be housed with other women not in your group.
