Homecoming Retreats.jpg

Why should you attend a retreat?

Because your relationship with God matters!
Because your relationship with other men matters!
Because the opportunity to learn, and grow matters!
Because the stuff you have to do can wait [be rescheduled, be videotaped, or be canceled without a problem]!
Because you don’t want to miss this opportunity to be part of an awesome movement of the Holy Spirit!

Women's Retreat: November 2nd

Michelle is an inner-city high school English teacher turned pastor, which means, for her, church looks, sounds, and smells a little different. Having helped plant four other United Methodist new faith communities in Virginia Beach and Durham, Michelle’s heart is set on fire by expressions of church that major on community, mission, justice, and inclusivity. She is an ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church and currently serves The Kingstowne Communion in Alexandria.
