Thrive Retreats

Our retreats allow women serving cross-culturally to get away from their demanding work for a time of rest, renewal, and refreshment. The women are ministered to holistically - spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

Retreat for Global Women

About Our Retreats

Retreats are for U.S. and Canadian women who live and work cross-culturally. You must currently be a full time, support based, cross-cultural worker living overseas.

Why only North American Women?

Do you still have questions?

Alos global woman
As of May 2018, we have been in 41 different international locations and hosted 16 retreats in the U.S. for women on furlough. More than 4,600 women have attended a retreat as our guests. The retreat experience is a gift to the retreat attendee, typically underwritten by friends and supporters of our ministry.

We provide care, resources, and community to encourage and empower Global Women to thrive.

A safe place for you to come and be loved by our sweet Jesus Christ

Prayer and Worship

A safe place to pray and worship freely with other Global Women. Sometimes it is not easy for Global Women to worship publicly while serving overseas. At our retreats, Global Women can freely pray and worship with other Global Women.

A safe place to connect and share with other Global Women who understand the demanding work of living overseas. Meaningful connections that bring sense of belonging and knowledge that they are not alone in the field.

Professional Counselors

A safe place where you can process with professional counselors that will listen and pray with you. We understand the challenges of being a mother, a wife or a single person on the field. Many Global Women have benefited from counseling over the years.

Physical Care

A safe place where you can relax and enjoy all the amenities such as pedicure, massage therapy, haircuts from professional hairstylists, and many more! Because we know that you are always serving others, at our retreat we want to serve and pamper you!

Retreat attendees circles

"Sometimes we can feel forgotten on the field. This retreat reminded me of my place in the Kingdom and the love that the Father has for me."

"You can feel God's fingerprints and grace all over this event. It feels really good to have someone safe..."
