Refresh Women's Retreat

Planted for a Purpose

May 6th & 7th, 2022

Guest Speaker

Rachael Drullinger, who resides on the Eastern Plains of Colorado, is a farmer's wife, English teacher, and mother of two (growing) boys. She loves the Word of God, and has a passion for the study of Apologetics. She attends Liberty Baptist Church in Joes, where Pastor Jack Stout encourages her gift of teaching in women's ministry. Rachael knows God has led her to the public school system in order to be a light to children, and she encourages all believers to truly grow wherever they have been planted.   She is not the best cook, cannot seem to multi-task, and has a tendency to physically shudder when the word literally is used in a figurative way. Essentially, she is a work in progress - but she presses on toward the goal to finish the race set before her (Philippians 3:14).
