The purpose of the Women’s Ministries is to lift up Jesus Christ and to encourage women to grow in their relationship with God and understanding of His love through the value He gives them. As we are impacted by this deeper relationship with Christ, we will share Him with our family, friends, church, and community.

One-day Women’s Retreat

One-day | Three Events

April 15, 2023

10:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Hershey Lodge, Hershey, Pa.

Main Event

Gianna Snell is a self-proclaimed “southern girl.” A daughter of a pastor, she was born in Selma, AL and grew up in Nashville, TN. She attended Oakwood University for two years and then transferred to Andrews University where she graduated with dual degrees in Photographic Imaging and Communication.

Gianna is a published writer, a budding speaker and an accomplished portrait artist. She owns her own company, Gianna Snell Photography and loves capturing the genuine connections and expressions of her clients.

She is the founder of Psalm 113:9 Ministries, a support group that seeks to encourage women who are struggling with infertility, miscarriage and pregnancy loss, with a promise God gave Gianna after her losses, that God can settle barren women in their homes as happy mothers of children. (Psalm 113:9) She is a witness because they lost four babies but God restored! And they are now grateful parents to three miracle children.

In 2020, this ministry was relaunched as They That Wait Ministries which aims to help people who are waiting on God to answer any type of prayer, from waiting for marriage to waiting for purpose, wait well.

In her spare time, Gianna loves to listen to music, sing and dance, SHOP, and spend time with family.

Young Adults

We are inevitably shaped by the homes we are raised in, the churches and schools we attend and the relationships we experience. Sometimes we may not even be aware of what these experiences have painted into our picture of God. In three sessions we will be exploring God as he relates to our mental health, self-worth and identity, and recovery from trauma. 

Beth Hill is a mental health advocate, mom of two and pastor’s wife. She shares from her own background of dealing with religion-based trauma and her journey back to finding confidence, hope and a new experience with God.


Teens will spend the day with Julissa Boyce. An educator who teaches grades 7-9 at Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy. She enjoys singing, playing volleyball, ballet and interior design. Her YouTube and Tiktok channels are filled with videos on faith, lifestyle and self-growth, and teaching. She brings a joy and energy to whatever topic she’s teaching or talking about.


Women’s Retreats

We offer two annual women’s retreat–one held at a hotel with guest speaker and a more intimate, casual event held at Laurel Lake Camp with a local speaker. Both are designed to give women the opportunity to get away, recharge, build friendships, and grow deeper in their relationship with Christ. The hotel conference includes breakout seminars on a variety of practical topics. The events also feature a track for teens.

Princess Teas

Princess Teas, created for little girls under 12, are a great church and community outreach. designed to help little girls grow up with the foundational truth that they are God’s princesses, planned uniquely and loved deeply. The afternoon event features stories of princesses from the Bible along with crafts, games, and fun. Attend a Conference event or plan your own. Download our Princess Tea Ministry Resource.

God’s Girls Gala

Each Gala tackles relevant topics with a Seventh-day Adventist biblical background, intentionally designed to remind girls of who they are in Christ and to learn to live confidently as the young woman He specifically created them to be
