2019 Fall
Women’s Retreat

“Exodus: Enforcing Your Victory”

October 10-12, 2019
Wilderness at the Smokies, Sevierville, TN


It’s time to get away for a refreshing and deeper impartation from our Heavenly Father! Join us as we enjoy a 3-day fall retreat at
Wilderness at the Smokies…

What to Expect 

When Pastor Cynthia prayed about the theme for this year’s retreat, God placed the word “Exodus” on her heart. Too often women find themselves stressed, worried, overwhelmed, and feeling defeated when we should be living a life of freedom from the curse and walking in victory. It’s time to “exit” the mentality that is holding us captive and renew our minds to the Word of God regarding our authority in Jesus Christ.

This retreat is about taking time away from work, family, social media, the news, etc. to receive something new from Heaven that will change the way we live and affect those around us when we return home. Each day at the Exodus Retreat will include corporate prayer, worship, a message from our speakers, private devotion, quiet time with The Father, and amazing activities that are designed to strengthen your relationship with God and with your sisters in Christ!

We are excited for you to join us!


Our Speakers 


Pastor Cynthia and her husband, Dr. Keith Rogan, are the founding pastors of Church on the Rock in Nashville, TN, and they have been married for 30+ years. Pastor Cynthia created Women of Purpose & Power, which is a fellowship group that teaches and empowers women according to the Word of God. She also ministers monthly at the Tennessee Prison for Women, teaching them about their redemption in Christ. She is the host and facilitator for the Exodus Retreat.

Pastor Diana, along with her husband of 40+ years Dr. Michael Jacobs, founded Church on the Rock in New Albany, IN. For more than 33 years she has been a spiritual mother to Pastor Cynthia, and throughout her ministry she has impacted the lives of women from all across the country. Her ministry has birthed several female pastors who have been sent out with their husbands to start churches and carry out a spiritual legacy. We are honored to have her as a guest minister at the Exodus Retreat.

Both of our speakers are Godly women who have raised children in the ministry and are blessed with grandchildren. They have so much wisdom about what it takes to live a faithful and victorious life. You don’t want to miss what God gives them to share at the retreat!
