About the Event

Leaders need time apart to become refreshed, rejuvenated, and restored. This retreat is designed just for female pastors and leaders!


  • Breath life into your relationship with God as streams of living water begin to flow clearer, stronger, and purer
  • Soak in the presence of God and find strength, energy, clarity of vision, anointing, and spiritual authority
  • Be refreshed and increase your ability to walk and minister in the power of the Holy Spirit


  • Remember your first love
  • Fill your gas tank up with premium Holy Spirit fuel
  • Tune your vision, and receive clarity and courage for the journey


  • Faith in God's goodness, promises, and faithfulness
  • Faith in God's ability to answer prayer
  • Faith in God's closeness as you enter into His presence
  • Faith in God's love and tender care enfolds you, and healing manifests

REFRESH is a retreat designed specifically for women in full-time pastoral, leadership, and government positions. As we take time apart to be with God, we provide a safe place for leaders to build relationships with other leaders, grow in God, receive healing, worship, and relax.

Ruth Hendrickson is an ordained pastor, itinerant speaker, ministry trainer, and board-certified Biblical counselor who has extensive experience in the development, training, and oversight of emotional healing ministry teams, recovery ministries, prophetic ministry, prayer ministries and women’s ministry. In addition, she is a course facilitator for Patricia King Institute and Charisma courses. She writes for Elijah List and Charisma and has a podcast titled “Real Truth with Ruth - God’s Solutions for Living.” Through biblically based teachings and practical applications infused with love and laughter, her goal is to introduce people not only to the living God who saves, but also to the God who desires an intimate relationship with each one of us. Her books Positioned – How to be Aligned & Empowered to Walk in Your Diving Destiny and Everyday Prophetic will help you grow in your walk with God.  Ruth is an avid unsweetened iced tea drinker who loves warm weather, palm trees and beaches! She believes that she should live in the South. However, in the meantime Ruth and her husband Mark reside in Stockton, New Jersey.

Cindy Stewart has learned to build the bridge between business and ministry through her skills of being able to incorporate God into everything you are doing.  Her teachings and experience prepare you to live out of the presence of God, which in turn enables you to achieve your goals in business and ministry.

She is a business consultant, executive coach, and the Senior Leader at the Gathering Apostolic Center.  Her weekly show, Cindy Stewart Live, can be found on CTN Houston and on Youtube. Her books can be purchased on Amazon or on her website at

Liz Humphrey is a worship leader and vocal performer whose driving passion is to see music and the arts impact both those inside and outside the Church with the simple truth of God’s love. Having grown up at Time Square Church in NYC,  right next door to the heart of American performing arts, Liz developed a passion for worship and the arts at a young age. She spent her growing up years traveling with her family, ministering in different places through music and song. She later went to Houghton College in Upstate New York, where she trained in Vocal Performance before graduating with a degree in Music Composition. Liz has worked as the music director for Family Life Ministries, as the worship leader for a United Methodist Church, and now serves on the worship team at Life Center Ministries International in Harrisburg, PA.

Liz has a passion to see a modern-day renaissance within the arts and entertainment industry, in which artists develop excellence in their creativity, while discovering the freedom of true identity. Liz believes that creativity comes through communion with God, in which our spirits interact with His, producing the kind of beauty that has the power to heal hearts and change lives. Throughout her journey with creativity, Liz has experienced the importance of finding her identity not in her skill alone, but more importantly in her relationship with God, and that in turn allows her to become free in her own unique sound. She has a passion to see this generation of artists also discover their unique identities as they learn to partner with the truth of who God has called them to be.

Liz and her husband, Mike, who is a pastor at Life Center Ministries, live with their 3 kids in Harrisburg, where they love to lead worship together, create spaces for relational and spiritual growth to happen within community, and raise their kids with a revelation of God’s love and a desire to worship Him.
