Throughout the retreat, there are sessions with guest speakers for the ladies and teens separately.
The speakers are always thoughtfully prayed through to uplift, encourage, inspire,
motivate and strengthen your walk with the Lord.
Ladies' Speaker from our 2015 Retreat
Margaret's call to work with women dates back to 1978 when clearly the passion to see women rise to their full potential and
their God-given calling was deeply embedded in her heart. A mentor, motivator and encourager, Margaret is a champion of
women wherever they live and regardless of their circumstance. Some of Margaret's experience includes:
2011 - founder of Women Together - a global ministry with teams of gifted, seasoned Canadian Christian women who will come alongside to equip, encourage and empower women in developing countries through education, leadership training, tools, and spiritual encouragement.
Since November 2010 Margaret has ministered to women in Ukraine, Uganda, Kenya, India, Philippines, Brazil and Argentina.
Margaret has initiated Women Together Leadership Mentoring Webinars and Women Together Scholarship Project.
Margaret was selected as one of Canada's 100 Christian Women Leaders by Bridgeway Foundation, February 2014.
"My passion today is to create a global community of women who have heard God's call and are passionate about their
relationship with Jesus Christ. God's women empowered by His Spirit can change the world."
This word about Margaret Gibb comes from one of our ladies in the North who has sat under Margaret's ministry:
"If I could just add a word of excitement and encouragement regarding your choice of speaker with Margaret Gibb -- she is dynamic, and in tune with
the Holy Spirit. Over the years, as I led our Women's Ministries in the section we had yearly retreats and Margaret was just one of those speakers that
stood out. She speaks with power and authority in the Holy Ghost, driving home God's Word. Wow, you are blessed to have her speak to the ladies!"
Margaret's messages are here for you to listen to & enjoy:
Teens' Speaker from our 2015 Retreat
April serves the Lord alongside her husband Mark as missionaries for the Faith Mission (in Canada).
She has a passion for seeing people come to know Christ and find their worth in Him.
Since coming to know Jesus as her Saviour at age 18, April has been involved in
Youth, Women's and Children's ministries across Ontario and Quebec.
April's prayer is that the young women of the North would catch a vision of the abundant life
the Lord has for them, and be inspired to live out the gospel like never before!
