Ministers' Wives Retreat 2019

The theme for the 2019 Ministers' Wives Retreat is "Women of Honor," based on Philippians 4:8

The retreat will help you 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 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!)


Marshelle Wilburn is a California native, wife, mother of five, urban church planting missionary, national leadership trainer, speaker to diverse audiences, and writer who partners in ministry with her husband, Port, director of missions for San Francisco-Peninsula Baptist Association and pastor of Rock Harbor Christian Fellowship in San Pablo.

Since 2007, she has been in management at one of Northern California’s largest Christian homeless shelters, the Bay Area Rescue Mission. She is passionate about teaching and encouraging others to deepen and strengthen their relationship with Christ for exponential Kingdom impact and to live their purpose to the fullest. Her loves are being a wife and the mom of four daughters and one son who are all talented and fill her with joy, spending time with family, meditating on, studying and teaching the Bible, California beaches, and coffee.

Worship Leader

Lisa Daniels is a wife and mother who loves to worship the Lord. She started leading worship at age 13 at Victory Christian Center. She also served as choir director and youth ministry leader. In June 2016, God led Lisa and her family to Bayview Baptist Church in San Diego where she 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.
