“As often as possible Jesus withdrew to

out-of-the-way places for prayer.”  

- LUKE 5:16


We have prepared a time and place for YOU to come away from

the distractions and demands of life and make space to hear God speak.

weekend retreat at the ocean

Join a small group of women for a

in beautiful Florence, Oregon

We’ve reserved a private room with a balcony and ocean view for you at the Driftwood Shores hotel. You'll experience a short time of learning with the group and an extended time of personal lingering with the Lord. We’ll help you get started and provide materials to keep you going. 


To come takes courage…thus the “dare.” First we must believe we are not indispensable - that life can go on without us for two days. We also need the courage to believe if you “draw near to God, He will draw near to you.”  (James 4:8)

Come away and experience a life-transforming weekend

What others are saying


God’s strength and security are in the quiet, not the noise. I needed to get out of the busyness of life for a moment to be reminded of His Voice. He was faithful to capture my thoughts and focus my mind.”


This time was so valuable. To sit still, to be quiet, to escape schedule/worry, no demands for my attention. Ahhh! Deep sigh of relief… I feel like I’m all re-filled and my perspective is re-aligned.

New Hope Eugene

“Dare to Be Still" is a women’s ministry of New Hope Eugene in Oregon.
