A Retreat For Women Leaders

You are gifted... You are called... You are invited...

As a female ministry leader, you are a different breed. You face unique challenges: internal doubts and external voices telling you that don’t belong; questions about what God is calling you to do, and uncertainties about how to live that calling out practically in your everyday life and relationships.

BE is a retreat for women leaders. It is not a leadership conference, focused on the “doing” of leadership. Nor is it a women’s conference that focuses on biblical teaching, personal spiritual growth, and encouragement for all women. Rather, it is a safe space for you as a female leader to celebrate your calling in Christ, to work through your challenges and your wounds, and to come and rest without being “on” or in charge.

Surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of Glen Eyrie, it is our hope that this retreat will help you:

  • Know your belovedness in Christ.
  • Be renewed in your courage to follow your calling.
  • Go strengthened and filled to do the work God has called you to do.

Thoughtfully curated by a team led by Angie Ward, BE will focus on your heart and soul, encouraging and strengthening you to identify and live out your God-given calling with confidence and joy.

We are making every effort to comply with state and county orders and recommendations regarding cleanliness and food service.

However, we have chosen at Glen Eyrie to no longer require any guests or staff to wear a facemask.  We recognize that guests will be resuming travel and group activities with a variety of diverse experiences with COVID-19 and differing comfort levels. These are unique times to navigate.  We encourage guests to take individual measures to help stop the spread of illness, including remaining at home and not participating in group activities if experiencing symptoms of illness, practicing social distancing, hand hygiene, and mask usage as an individual choice if needed. 

Our property is over 700 acres and contains 8 miles of hiking trails. Depending on where you are staying, you should be prepared to do lots of walking. Our weather can be unpredictable, so pack layers. Attire for the retreat is casual, and don’t forget your Bible!

Reservations cancelled or rescheduled within 14 days of the start date will be charged a 50% fee and have a Glen Eyrie gift card issued for the remaining 50%.

Our property contains 95 guest rooms in 7 different lodges, including our historic Castle. None of our rooms have TV’s, although free wi-fi is available throughout the property.
