Women's Retreat

Registration is closed.

Our Speaker:

Rebekah Johnson is a happy wife, busy mom and Women’s Ministry Director at Veritas Church in Iowa City. She is passionate about teaching God’s word and about presenting the bread of the gospel to other needy people like herself. One of her greatest joys is enjoying an early morning cup of coffee during her time in the Scriptures, only to be shortly joined by one of her three young sons.
