In 2011 a small group of women found themselves with a gap in their lives that was filled when they invited friends to participate in a weekend retreat. At that fall retreat, loveSTRONG Ministries began.


loveSTRONG Ministries is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in the Phoenix, AZ area.  We host large scale events for women to connect with each other at various venues surrounding the Phoenix area.  loveSTRONG offers enthusing speakers who share from God's word and enjoyable activities to connect with women.  Designed by women for women.

We love because he first loved us.  1 John 4:19


loveSTRONG Ministries is a non-denominational Christian ministry dedicated to connect, develop and inspire women to know God's love.  This is accomplished by hosting several events throughout the year. Our firm beliefs are:

The Bible …is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God. We are committed to teaching from the Bible and applying it to our lives. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

God …is the only, eternal Creator. He exists in the three persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (John 1:1-3; John 14:16-17)

Jesus …is the Word made Flesh, was fully God and fully man, lived a sinless life, died, and was raised again by God to save all believers from eternity separated from Him. (John 1:1)

Holy Spirit …is given to us by God to indwell those who believe in Him and empower us to walk with Him daily. (John 14:16-17; Acts 2:38)

Church …is the group of believers in Jesus Christ. We are in community with each other to encourage each other to love God and love others through community, teaching, and worship. (Acts 2:42-44)

Salvation …is a free gift from God as a result of what He has done through the death and resurrection of Jesus, not from what we have done for Him. We need to not only hear, but believe in and confess Him as Savior and Lord of our lives. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 2:32-38)


loveSTRONG Ministries is comprised of women tasked to lead this organization. While they each harbor unique talents and a wide range of personalities, the one thing they all have in common, is their central love for Jesus in their life. Click to learn more about each.
