April 22-24, 2022

Rest | Renewal | Worship

Life is busy. You’re checking off your to-do list, helping kids with homework, serving your church, working from home, and cleaning your house during the only 30 minutes of quiet time you get. Eventually, it starts to feel like a hamster wheel—but you don’t have to stay there.

The Respond women’s conference is designed for women who want to stay tethered to Jesus in the middle of the busyness. This spring retreat is filled with rich Bible teaching, refreshing fellowship, and lots of laughter. We’ll also spend at least one night testing out some delectable homemade treats.

If you’re looking for a restful weekend with your best friends in the mountains, then Respond might be what you need to reset. Find new joy in the Lord—no matter the circumstances.

Respond includes solid biblical teaching, inspirational worship, outdoor recreation, encouraging fellowship, delicious food and a few surprises.

Sign up with family, friends, church groups or as individuals.

“This experience showed me first hand what a woman in Christ looks like. I came home knowing Jesus loves me and calls me friend.”


“I loved that all the women spoke the Gospel and truth… I grew deeper in my walk with the Lord, connected with other women in my church and came home refreshed.”


“It was so refreshing to sit under the teaching and spend time in worship and just take time to focus on the Lord apart from the distractions of day to day life.”

What is the programming like at Snowbird?

This retreat includes solid biblical teaching, Gospel-focused worship, high-adventure recreation, and encouraging fellowship with your best friends. Don’t worry if you’re not the greatest thrill-seeker, we’ll enjoy delicious food, beautiful scenery, and a few surprises along the way.

What recreation do you provide at Respond?

The scheduled recreation at Respond includes any of our on-campus recreation options, like our climbing tower, aerial park, 3-man swing, and gun range. However, there are plenty of small-town mountain treasures to discover. You’ll have time to grab a quick hike on the Appalachian Trail, watch kayakers explore the Nantahala River, or check out a coffee shop.

What types of housing do you provide for our group?

We have over 14 cabins on our campus, divided by bedrooms for each group. They each provide twin-sized bunk beds, air conditioning, and heat. Our cleaning team takes great pride in keeping things clean but the buildings are simply functional. You’ll need to provide your own bedding, pillow and towels. The bathouse is a short walk across the property.

How do I add or drop additional spots to my group?

You can add additional spots to your group as long as the retreat is not full. The best way to find out is to open your Snowbird Account and see if there are any remainings spots open for the retreat. However, you’ll want to only register spots that you’re certain you’ll need. The deposit is non-refundable.
