The retreat is scheduled for Friday, October 6 through Saturday, October 7 at The Spiritual Life Center of Maria Stein. The center is located on 87 lovely acres with a pond, paths in the woods, and a prayer labyrinth conveniently accessible.
Melissa Montana will be leading this retreat. She loves life, she loves people, and she loves to share hope in a hopeless world. Melissa doesn't need her professional titles to find value. She knows her value is in the calling on her life, being a mom, and serving others. At the young age of 8 years-old she survived being slammed by a truck and experienced loss and brokenness later in life, but she knows what hope is. Her faith has been her strength all these years.
The journey has given her a story, but God has given her a voice. Melissa has been in Christian radio for over 33 years now, being a freind on the air sharing encouragement to thousands. Almost eight years ago she became the CEO & President of STAR Educational Media Network, which grew quickly and has received numerous local and national awards. Melissa is very active in the region hosting events for non-profits and serving in the community.
Her greatest joy in life is being the single adoptive mom of her daughter that she brought home from Guatemala as a baby. LaShay is now an 18 year-old looking to see God's plan unfold ahead in college. Melissa believes anything is possible with Jesus as her hope.
Come join us! Take time to relax, make new friends, and worship God.
