Overview

You are invited to come away and discover the beauty of your heart as a woman. And there is no better place to do that than at the Feminine Hearts Alive Encounter.

The Encounter is a 3 day retreat designed to take you on a journey to discover how to live alive to God and your true self so that you experience the life and freedom Jesus has for you. 80% of the feedback we get from women who have attended say that the Encounter is 3 of the most freeing and life changing days of their lives. So we invite you to join us and bring those women in your life that God has put on your heart.

The encounter will be held at the Iron Horse Ranch – a privately owned 400 acre ranch 2 hours outside of Houston, Texas.  The location is absolutely stunning featuring rolling hills, 5 stocked lakes and hiking trails.  The accommodations are very nice, featuring 43 hotel quality cabanas with full baths.

The Encounter will be held on November 7-10, 2024.  There will be some very fun activities that include a zip line, miniature golf, a vanishing pool, spa, volleyball courts, fire pits, hiking, and more.

A note about Covid

For this event we will not have any COVID related restrictions. Specifically, there will be no face mask wearing because we have found that masks greatly prohibit meaningful connection and interaction among participants. There will also be no social distancing, no limited attendance, no vaccination requirements, or status checking. 

All participants understand this and participate at their own risk and liability.  We simply ask that participants take common sense measures before attending and if showing transmissible symptoms within 24 hours of attendance to politely stay back entirely or until receiving appropriate medical clearance. If you need to cancel due to COVID symptoms we will issue you a refund.

If you are concerned about catching COVID and are uncomfortable coming on the event in light of our COVID policy listed above, we ask that you postpone attending until a future date when you would feel more comfortable attending.
