We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Retreat, Reflect, Renew, a retreat ministry offering online retreats, personal retreats, and day retreats to help you sort through your relationship with yourself, others, and God in a gentle, non-judgmental, and welcoming place.


Foundress Christine Jurisich's early days in ministry included over ten years as a national leader of Ministry of Mothers Sharing. Among her many accomplishments is the development of the On the Journey Retreat Series. Read Christine's complete bio here.

Our Mission

WITHIN MINISTRIES brings women of all ages and life experiences together to engage in a spiritual process that illuminates and affirms their sacred dignity.

Our Vision
To awaken the Spirit within to create a culture that ignites women's passion to use their voices and share their gifts for the transformation of society.

WITHIN MINISTRIES is a nonprofit 501(c)3 offering spiritual growth experiences for women of all ages. Through Grace Within and Ministerio de Mujeres en Crecimiento Personal (peer-facilitated small group gatherings) women are encouraged to get in touch with their inner selves and form bonds with other women. Through the On the Journey Retreat Series (peer-facilitated three-hour retreats) women experience the quiet, sacred invitation to delve deeper.       

   Connecting through WITHIN MINISTRIES

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.                                                                   John 15:12

We are able to Love only because God loved us first. He taught us how to love our neighbor as ourself.  On Valentine’s Day, we say “I love you”, but it is important to make every day special to our children, husband, family and other loved ones by saying “I love you”. It is also important to not only say “I love you” but to show love, kindness and compassion daily, in the little things we do. 


Taking part in a WITHIN MINISTRIES retreat or group session is a focused way to help recognize our gifts and talents, and how to use them and share them in acts of love, kindness and understanding with those around us.

   A Message from WITHIN MINISTRIES    

We love because He first loved us.            John 4:19
