Connecting through WITHIN MINISTRIES

Autumn – the days are shortening and becoming cooler. The fields and gardens are being harvested.  The colors turn to warm ambers and shades of red. Leaves are falling from the trees. We sometimes think of autumn as a time when everything is dying, but in reality, it is a time of letting go, a movement which has to take place in order to transition between summer’s fruitfulness and new growth the following spring.  The barren branches already have the ability of new buds within them.  The same is true for our lives. Maybe there are things we need to let go of in order for us to let new spirit within ourselves, bud and grow.


Participating in WITHIN MINISTRIES or one of our On The Journey Retreats is the perfect way to help you think about and discover what you feel called to let go of, what gives you nourishment and vitality, what protects you and comforts you and what new buds are within you waiting to grow and to give you new hope.

   A Message from WITHIN MINISTRIES    

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 spirit 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. 

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.
