2021 Pastors Wives Getaway

Ladies, please make plans to join us on March 21-24 for a spectacular time of connection and friendship. Now more than any time in the history of this ministry, we are hearing that women need to be with each other. Being a pastor's wife has become more difficult in 2020. Many women are now home schooling children, becoming impromptu camera artists for their husbands, and learning how to navigate Zoom meetings.

We are offering a three day getaway or respite from ministry responsibilities. We want wives to feel pampered, encouraged, connected to others, and rested. We know some of you have been asking and waiting for this time to be away. We will be sending out more information in the future... but for now, put it on your (and your husband's) calendar. Sunday, March 21 thru Wednesday morning, March 24.

We hope you will make this a priority. You need it!!

To keep up on the latest updates, please Face Book friend Louise and she will invite you to the "Deer Ridge Pastors Wives Getaway" page. This is a closed group which allows us to quickly share information with wives. The information shared there is not seen by any of your other FB contacts.

LeAnn Riveness was raised in a pastor’s home and learned to love music and Jesus at an early age. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree and has been a ordained pastor since 2005. LeAnn is the Worship Arts Director and Worship Leader at Christian Life Church in Mt. Prospect, IL. She also is a professor of music at Christian Life College as well as a clinician, seminar and conference leader. We know her as a talented vocalist, pianist and guitarist. She is also the mother of two children and has a huge heart for serving God. Her fun-loving attitude and never ending energy will inspire you as she points you to the King of kings!

Many gals left notes of thanks. Here are some of the written comments from a few of our new friends:

“What a unique ministry to an often forgotten group of women.”

“The messages encouraged me in a difficult new endeavor God is calling me to fulfill.”

“Thank-you for allowing me to come, to be encouraged and refreshed that I might partner even better with my husband.”

“This gift has reminded me that I am not alone.”
