…Changes Everything.

“Neuroscience has shown that our brains are wired by our relationships. It was not random that God chose to breathe the breath of life into Adam face to face and that the first thing Adam saw was God smiling at him.”
— Amy Brown, Journey Groups Director, Deeper Walk International

Have you ever been disappointed that the abundant life Jesus promised just doesn’t seem to happen for you? Do you want to go deeper in your walk with God? Do you long for healthy, life-giving community with others? Do you want to experience freedom and get emotionally healthy? Have you ever thought, “There must be more?”

You’ve come to the right place!

Everything we do as a ministry is about helping you establish true connection with Jesus, with others, and with the real you. It is through these connections where true and lasting transformation happens. That’s not just a theory. Neuroscience has proven it. True connection changes everything.


One of the primary contexts we use help people connect is through our Dash Away Weekend Christian Retreats for Women. Everything about the Dash Away experience is designed to help you establish true connection with God, with others, and with the real you. We plan and organize Dash Away events throughout the year, both in the United States, and internationally.

AND - If you are a women’s ministry leader and are looking for ideas for your women’s retreat, look no further. Let us make your job easier by providing the Dash Away content, including worship, interactive teaching, activities, and prayer ministry for your women’s event.



I was tired, frustrated, angry, worn out, and dry. This weekend completely transformed, refreshed, and encouraged me! Come if convenient. If it’s inconvenient, come anyway!

Almost eighty years ago I was born into a Presbyterian family resulting in my being raised a “frozen chosen.” God used Face to Face Ministries to begin the thawing process. Through the gifting of Cathy and Melinda the Holy Spirit was beautifully and gently experienced, I am grateful for my spirit being ushered into the presence of my Abba Father through the music, the word sung and spoken. Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift of Himself!

I came because I needed to be filled up and healed. I knew God would meet me - and He did... in ways I could not have imagined. My life has been enriched with new sisters in Christ, healing, and tools to take going forward. If you ever get a chance to go to a Dash Away, take it!!!

Everything we do is built for connection. Our Dash Away Weekends incorporate a variety of tools to help you connect both vertically with God and horizontally with others, as well as experiencing emotional healing within. In addition to each Dash Away component, we have many additional options that can be customized to uniquely suit what you, your church, or your event requires - for both men and women. To explore any of these ideas in addition to or instead of a weekend retreat, or to discuss something else you have in mind, please contact us.

“Whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are—face-to-face! They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.”
