Fellowship is so important on this faith journey. Are you looking to deepen your friendships with like-minded women in your community? Could you use some time away to refresh your mind, soul, and body? How about some time to let your soul breathe as you seek the Lord away from all of the distractions of daily life? Our Fall Women’s Retreat at Forest Home is the perfect balance of rest, fellowship, relaxation, learning, and fun. As Fall ushers in a new season in the San Bernardino mountains, you will have the opportunity to indulge in some pampering (massage, anyone?), be encouraged in your walk with God, and make memories with other women as you do crafts, dine on delicious food, and enjoy the many recreation options we have to offer. Whether it’s hiking or journaling, chatting over coffee or sleeping in, you are sure to find what you need in a weekend getaway.
A unique feature that distinguishes Forest Home is our all-inclusive rate packages, which means you won’t pay extra for meals, meeting space, and recreation. TEACHING: Lisa Toney Lisa Toney is a courageous and bold woman of God. She lives life to the fullest and empowers all those she encounters to dream big with God. The City of Angels is where she hangs her hat. Her dream super power is a flying minivan so that she could instantly transport her family over L.A. traffic. Lisa brings a message of hope, humor, and authentic faith. Lisa is a teaching pastor at Purpose Church in California and also a Voice for Women of Faith. She loves to speak about and share the brilliance and beauty of Scripture. Lisa has a degree in Communications from Taylor University and an M.Div degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. One brave man dared to marry her and they have four little people in their home that leave her excited for quiet and clean things some day. Until that day, she relishes those sweet, sloppy, and LOUD moments. A little bit of coffee, dark chocolate, and a whole lot of Jesus get her through each day. WORSHIP: Mandi Pinto It can be said that Mandie Pinto has an endless song echoing in her soul. Falling in love with music at a very young age, Mandie heard the call to minister through music, and set out to sing at churches throughout the San Fernando Valley in Southern California. God has given her the blessed privilege of leading and/or performing at churches and other venues all over the United States. Currently, she attends and serves as a Worship Leader at Shepherd Church in Porter Ranch..
