BGCO Women’s Retreat
What can we offer you?
Women today need to know their God is faithful, and that faith truly works no matter what the world tells them. Hearts in Touch Women’s Ministry seeks to support and encourage women in growing their relationship with Christ. We offer several ministry teams where you can use your spiritual gifts in service to the Lord.
Kay Arthur’s exciting, practical approach to the Scriptures has influenced thousands to use the Precept™ Inductive Bible Study Method in their personal studies. Her distinguished Christian character, Bible teaching, championing of biblical literacy, and national radio and television programs motivate others to discover truth for themselves. Kay’s passion is for people to be established in God’s Word.
At the age of 29, a divorced mother of two working as a nurse, Kay called in sick to the hospital where she was working because she was sick at heart, sick over the life of sin she had been living. She had a religion but did not possess a relationship with God. On the morning of July 16, 1963, she fell on her knees as a sinner and rose as pure and whole in the Lord’s sight. “For ‘Whoever will call upon the name of the LORD will be saved’” Romans 10:13, (NASB). “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NASB). She hungered and thirsted for the Word of truth and began studying the Bible. Her relationship with the Lord and scriptural findings turned her sorrows into joy and her mourning into laughter.
Katherine Wolf is survivor and storyteller, advocate and evangelist. In 2008, at the age of 26, she nearly died from a catastrophic brainstem stroke. Her survival and recovery, not to mention that of her marriage and family, have been nothing short of miraculous. Katherine and her husband, Jay, are in full-time ministry together through HOPE HEALS, leveraging their story to encourage those with broken bodies, broken brains, and broken hearts. Engaging both faith-based and secular communities, they seek to bridge the gap between those disabled on the outside and those disabled on the inside with the hope that Jesus brings healing to the deepest pains we all carry. They co-authored their first book, HOPE HEALS, published by Zondervan in April 2016. They currently reside in Los Angeles with their two sons, James and John.
Ruth Chou Simons
Ruth is an artist, author, entrepreneur, and speaker. Ruth is most interested in how the gospel intersects her daily life, and longs to see beauty and truth together in any creative medium. Her first book, GraceLaced: Discovering Timeless Truths Through Seasons of the Heart with Harvest House Publishers released on September 1, 2017. She’s an unlikely mom to six young boys and wife to Troy, with whom she leads GraceLaced’s small but mighty team. When not painting, writing, and casting vision for GraceLaced.com, Ruth is usually busy eating chips and salsa, sorting laundry, cooking for large crowds, not finishing her sentences, and discovering off-beaten paths in the wild with her guys. She is a devotee of pho, a recovering perfectionist, a converted four-wheeling enthusiast, and a believer in waiting upon her Redeemer through every season.
Ruth, Troy and their boys call both Los Ranchos, New Mexico, and the Western slope of Colorado, near Durango, home and spend their time chasing sunsets as much as possible.
Eden believes music is one of the most powerful expressions we have, to heal our hearts, to connect us, and to worship God. She is married to the kid’s pastor at Broken Arrow, First. They have been married for two years and in December of 2016 welcomed their first baby, Aspen Grace, into the world. She is head over heels for this baby girl and loves the new phase of being a mom. Her heart is for worship to be a catalyst for encouragement and connection, and she cannot wait to worship with you!

Moms of all ages and stages are invited to our fellowship group that meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month during the school year, 9:45am-11:15am. We learn and share together about a variety of parenting and home topics, which includes a devotion time and refreshments. We meet in the East Lobby, and childcare is provided. During the summer, moms and kids enjoy fun times together at a variety of fun family activity venues.
Ladies Fellowship is a monthly gathering of women of all ages who want to grow in their relationship with Christ and one another. We meet in different homes for food, fellowship, a devotion or a testimony from those who want to share. We welcome and encourage any ladies from our community to join us as we grow together.
Bible studies designed specifically for women will provide opportunities to develop a deeper, more intimate relationship with God and fellowship opportunities with other women. There will be a variety of bible studies offered throughout the year. Dates, locations and topics will be publicized as new studies begin.
We have a heart for helping others and if you do too, then we would love for you to join us!
