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.  

This ministry exists to connect, develop and inspire women to know God's love.  We host events to bring those opportunities to women of all ages and in all seasons of their lives.  Taking every effort to welcome our guests and give them a comfortable, beautiful environment, loveSTRONG ministries offers speakers who share from God's word and activities to enjoy.  Everyone leaves a loveSTRONG event with new friends and a refreshed heart.

Affecting hundreds of women with diverse backgrounds as we show God’s love and connecting women to each other as we teach from the Bible are the pillars of this ministry. Connect. Develop. Inspire.

Philippians 1:6(NIV) "Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

loveSTRONG ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.


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)
