April 19-21, 2024 —  Anchored to Christ

This women’s conference is designed for women of all ages who want to be encouraged and challenged by the Word of God. Most Christian women’s conferences are based in a major city, with a big event, and no real opportunity to build relationships. This Snowbird retreat is different. Whether you’re looking for a weekend away with your small group, college friends, or even your daughter, we hope you will come away with a renewed purpose for your calling as a godly woman.

The book of Hebrews teaches us, repeatedly, that Jesus is better than anything this life has to offer. He is our strength and sustainment; our joy and hope. So, let’s stay anchored to him—and never let go.

2024 Women’s Retreat

Rest | Renewal | Worship (In the Mountains)

Being a woman in today’s world is difficult. You have heard a million definitions of “womanhood.” Yet, Scripture has spoken about what being a woman should look like. Biblical womanhood is a high calling. You may not be able to control what the world tells you, but you can control how you respond.

This Christian women’s conference is packed with expositional teaching, fellowship with other believers, and high-adventure recreation! We hope you can join us this spring in the mountains!

Respond includes solid biblical teaching, inspirational worship, outdoor recreation, encouraging fellowship, delicious food, and a few surprises.

Attend the Respond women’s retreat with family, friends, your church group, or an individual.

Encouraging Words From Women At Respond

“This experience showed me firsthand what a woman in Christ looks like. I came home knowing Jesus loves me and calls me friend.”


“I loved that all the women spoke the Gospel and truth… I grew deeper in my walk with the Lord, connected with other women in my church, and came home refreshed.”


“It was so refreshing to sit under the teaching and spend time in worship and just take time to focus on the Lord apart from the distractions of day-to-day life.”

What is the programming like at Snowbird?

Most Christian women’s conferences are based in a major city, with a big event, and no real opportunity to build relationships. Respond is different.

This women’s retreat includes solid biblical teaching, Gospel-focused worship, high-adventure recreation, and encouraging fellowship with your best friends. Don’t worry if you’re not the greatest thrill-seeker, we’ll enjoy delicious food, beautiful scenery, and a few surprises along the way.

What recreation do you provide at Respond?

The scheduled recreation at Respond includes any of our on-campus recreation options, like our climbing tower, aerial park, 3-man swing, and gun range. However, there are plenty of small-town mountain treasures to discover. You’ll have time to grab a quick hike on the Appalachian Trail, watch kayakers explore the Nantahala River, or check out a coffee shop.

What types of housing do you provide for our group?

We have over 14 cabins on our campus, divided by bedrooms for each group. They each provide twin-sized bunk beds, air conditioning, and heat. Our cleaning team takes great pride in keeping things clean but the buildings are simply functional. You’ll need to provide your own bedding, pillow and towels. The bathhouse is a short walk across the property.

How do I add or drop additional spots to my group?

You can add additional spots to your group as long as the retreat is not full. The best way to find out is to open your Snowbird Account and see if any remaining spots are open for the retreat. However, you’ll want to only register spots that you’re sure you’ll need. The deposit is non-refundable.
