Retreat With Us

Are you looking for connection with like-minded women? Would you like to get away from the day to day and have the opportunity to draw closer to the Lord? Then join women from La Jolla Community Church as we head up to Forest Home to join their Fall Women’s Retreat the weekend of Friday, October 18, 2019. This time away is the perfect balance of rest, fellowship, relaxation, learning, and fun.

Discover You Again

The theme “Fixer Upper” is a continuation from the spring 2019 retreat. The guiding verse is based on 2 Corinthians 5:17. Realize a new you as you abide in Him.

Speaker and Worship Leader

SPEAKER: Lisa Toney
WORSHIP: Mandie Pinto

Lisa Toney is a courageous and bold woman of God. She lives life to the fullest and empowers all those she encounters to dream big with God. The City of Angels is where she hangs her hat. Her dream super power is a flying minivan so that she could instantly transport her family over L.A. traffic.

Lisa brings a message of hope, humor, and authentic faith. She is a teaching pastor at Purpose Church in California and also a Voice for Women of Faith. She loves to speak about and share the brilliance and beauty of Scripture. Lisa has a degree in Communications from Taylor University and an M.Div degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. Lisa is the author of Thrive: Live Like You Matter and has a new book coming out this fall called The Scripture Challenge.

One brave man dared to marry her and they have four little people in their home that leave her excited for quiet and clean things some day.

Mandie Pinto – Falling in love with music at a very young age, Mandie heard the call to minister through music, and set out to sing at churches throughout the United States. God has given her the blessed privilege of leading and/or performing at churches and other venues all over the United States.

Mandie has independently recorded and released eight solo albums in the last 26 years (Angel Eyes, Someday, Count All Your Blessings, Better Things, Where You Are, In The Garden – Hymns of Serenity and most recently, Mandie Pinto Live-Let it Rain recorded live at Capitol Records) and her newest release, “Hold My Everything.”  In addition, Mandie recorded songs for projects released by Los Angeles Baptist High School (Currently Heritage Christian School) Azusa Pacific University, Shepherd of the Hills and the Crystal Cathedral. Currently, she attends and serves as a Worship Leader at Shepherd Church in Porter Ranch. When not serving at Shepherd Church, Mandie leads worship and/or performs at churches and conference centers weekly across the country.
