Retreat, Reflect, Renew Ministry offers online, personal, and day retreats to help you sort through your relationship with yourself, others, and God in a gentle, non-judgmental, and welcoming place.

First and foremost, we pray you are healthy and safe and finding ways to nurture your spirit as we collectively move through this time of pandemic. We grieve so many losses—life & livelihoods, dreams & traditions—and remain hopeful in the Easter promise of a steadfast and loving God. 


2020 and 2021 have been difficult for small businesses, and WITHIN MINISTRIES is not immune. One of our foundational values is gathering women for community-building. A few groups have found creative ways to meet virtually, and donors have continued to support us. Even so, it is simply not enough to sustain the ministry long term.


The board of directors of WITHIN MINISTRIES has made the difficult decision to cease business operations on December 31, 2021.

   An Important Message from Our Board  of Directors    

Since our grassroots beginning in 2014, we have been a ministry responsive to the calling of the Spirit. In 2019, we partnered with Retreat, Reflect, Renew Ministry  and are pleased to share that they are acquiring the publication rights to Grace Within, Ministerio de Mujeres en Crecimiento Personal, and the On the Journey Retreat Series. There will be a period of transition, and the future remains undefined.

We are announcing these decisions now to allow our active communities time to plan for their own future. We have taken care to ensure continued access to the spiritual growth process in some format. For those of you who wish to continue using the materials in hard copy after 2021, we encourage you to order books in the coming weeks, as quantities are limited. Watch your email inbox for information on the final date to purchase materials. Although our future is undefined at this time, we will be in touch through the website and by email later in the year with further details.​ We remain honored and grateful to serve the many women touched by this ministry.

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.
