Covenant Pines Bible Camp

women’s retreat

“Every time I’ve been here, no matter what the message has been, it has always spoken to a piece of my heart.”

This retreat is designed by women and for women. It’s purpose is to strengthen your relationship with God and those around you. Every year women from all over Minnesota make the trip up to Covenant Pines Bible Camp in order to refocus and spend a weekend in peace.

Many of the women who attend consider this retreat a priority in their lives. They place such high value on this weekend, not only because it’s a chance to have fun and be with friends, but because it’s a chance to explore their relationship with God and experience deeper levels of His love.

There is something special about this camp that allows that deep connection in such a way that is sometimes difficult to find in the routine of normal life. Come join us this September 22nd and experience this astonishing place!

Kyliah has lived in Minneapolis since January 2008, when she received a snowy welcome from Southern California!  She started as Pastor of Discipleship and Outreach at Crosstown in September 2016. In this role she helps to shepherd that congregation toward living in active pursuit of our Savior, through Bible study, teaching, service, and fellowship.  She enjoys being involved with the community and looks forward to helping facilitate new friendships and ministry partnerships in the neighborhood.  She and her husband John have 4 children: Samantha, Andreu, Silas, and Abigail. In her spare time she savors the outdoors, connecting with friends, carving out time for a good book, and volunteering as an instructor for CHET, the denomination’s Spanish language Bible institute.

Kyliah holds an undergraduate degree in Spanish and history from Calvin College (2000), and an MDiv from Fuller Seminary (2007).
