Are you in need of REST & RESTORATION after an oppressive and harmful relationship? Or perhaps, you are a people helper who wants to be better equipped to support and care for those who have been?

Join Us May 13-16, 2021

Featured speakers include Leslie Vernick of and Joy Forrest of Called to Peace Ministries



Leslie Vernick is joining with CTPM for this special women’s retreat aimed at offering hope and healing to survivors of abusive and destructive relationships. Learn ways to heal, build inner-strength, develop practical life-skills, and overall, be refreshed with an encouraging “pathway forward” vision for your life.


The primary focus of this conference is to support those impacted by harmful and abusive relationships; however, ministry leaders, friends, and family are welcome and encouraged to attend. Special breakout sessions to educate and equip will be available specifically for people helpers. In addition, women affiliated with the military will also have special breakout opportunities.

Retreat FAQ’s

I’m a ministry leader, should I come?

Yes, you are welcome and we have a place for you! CTPM exists to partner with others to best serve those who have been impacted by domestic abuse.  We will have special breakout sessions for people helpers including advocacy, how to lead a support group, and how to better educate your church about domestic abuse.

I've never experienced physical abuse. Is this retreat for me?

Yes!  All forms of abuse (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, sexual, isolation, financial, etc) are traumatic to experience.  Even children who observe abuse of their mother experience the same trauma even if it is not directed specifically at them.  Healing is available and that is why this retreat exists.
