Ministers' Wives Retreat 2018

The theme verse for the 2018 Ministers' Wives Retreat is Hebrews 6:19: "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain."

The retreat is a weekend where you can refocus your hope in God and just be who He designed you to be. No one is there to judge you, grade you or ask you to help with anything. It is a time for you to relax, learn, share, rest, devote or do whatever it is you need to do to recharge your life and reconnect with God.

The retreat has elements that will appeal to any personality or need:

  • inspiring worship
  • helpful breakout seminars
  • powerful speakers and leaders
  • energizing fellowship
  • fun recreational opportunities
  • interesting people
  • the best camp food anywhere
  • down time, if you choose (lots of down time!)


Rhonda Stoppe has been the wife of a minister for over 30 years and has joyfully
mentored minister's wives for nearly 20 years. At their ranch in Northern California
Rhonda and her husband, Steve, provide one-on-one marriage mentoring to
ministry couples in crisis. She gets it!

Rhonda is the author of four books including Mom’s Raising Sons to Be Men and
I Sleep with the Pastor. She has two more books premiering in 2018.

Through humor and honest communication, she helps women become the pastors'
wives and godly women they long to be.

Worship Leader:

Lisa Daniels is a loving wife and mother who loves to worship the Lord. She started
leading worship at the age of 13 at Victory Christian Center Church. She also served
as choir director and youth ministry leader.

In June 2016, God led Lisa and her family to the Bayview Baptist Church, San Diego where currently serves with the worship team.

Through leading worship and teaching God’s Word, Lisa has learned that her feelings of inadequacy do not have a place in His presence and it is her mission to inspire and encourage everyone to believe in themselves and that they too are fearfully and wonderfully made.
