A Weekend With You In Mind

Grab the girls and spend a weekend away, resting, and finding new strength at Berea’s Women’s Retreat.

The schedule for the retreat is planned deliberately to give you a chance to grow and to be refreshed, to use the time in the unique way that you would most enjoy. In between the main group sessions, spend time talking with friends, take a short hike along our Prayer Walk trail, relax with a book and a cup of coffee, or join in one of the many optional activities – such as riflery, archery, volleyball, seminars, crafts, kayaking, canoeing, and boat tours – that Berea has to offer.

WORSHIP LEADER: Out of the Dust

Chris and Stephanie are the husband and wife duo, Out of the Dust, who began and continue their lives just outside of Nashville, TN. Their story of downfall, heartbreak, and miraculous redemption is woven deep into the fabric of their music. After growing up in church and marrying young, like so many young men, Chris slowly and quietly lost all faith in God during college. Even while slipping deeper into drugs and every other whim of his heart, he secretly managed an alter ego for years around church friends, family, and even Stephanie. Finally, everything surfaced one Thursday night in January 2010 as Stephanie’s life unraveled before her eyes. Their young marriage quickly collapsed in divorce as Chris walked away from God, friends, and everything he had built with Stephanie. What happened next can’t be called anything other than a miracle. His independence very rapidly found him in the most desperate and heartsick place of his life, and it was there that he was shown the depth of his selfishness and pride. Incredibly, in just over a year, God mended their hearts, restored their marriage, and still continues to breathe new life into their story today. The passion they share is to tell of God’s beautiful and majestic redemption through music that is stirring, thoughtful, and uniquely their own.
