Repurposed: A one day women's retreat.

Repurposed: A one day women's retreat.
Saturday April 6th, 2013
New Life Assembly of God
720 Avon Rd, Sparta WI

From the Brochure:
As women, we are pulled in so many directions as our world creates a culture of busyness. This one day retreat for women ages 11 and up was birthed out of the vision to see women take one day out of their lives to come together in unity for the purpose of nuturing friendships with each other and most importantly spending time with God. We realize that it's not always possible to go overnight to a conference or retreat because of family responsibilities and finances and believe those should not be reasons that women don't enjoy an opportunity like this. We hope you consider joining us for "Repurposed" on April 6th.

Worship: Render
Render worship comes to us from North Central University in Minneapolis, MN. This worship team is made up of students from North Central and they lead worship weekly at the student led chapel called Render. The inspiration for the name Render is from the scripture found in Matthew 22:21 "Render to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, but Render unto God what belongs to God." The Render team has a heart for ministry in service as well as worship and we are very thankful for their willingness to do both for us for this retreat.

Speaker: Diane De la Santos
Since 2003, Diane has served as executive director of City on a Hill, an urban ministry center in the heart of Milwaukee, America's 4th poorest city. Diane left her position as VP of Public Affairs for a large health care system after 20 years to respond to a calling to full time ministry.

In 2006, she sold her home and moved into the old hospital campus that houses City on a Hill.

In April of 2012, Diane was given the Wisconsin Hero Award by the state's First Lady Tonette Walker for "her life of sacrificial giving and her extraordinary service as Director of City on a Hill."

As a young women, before giving her life to Christ, Diane was a single mother living in poverty. She now has two adult children and three granddaughters. Diane's other ministry experience includes developing the guest services program for a large church, leading a women's small group ministry and teaching Christian conflict management and adult Sunday School.

She has a passion to see parents walking in covenant with God and raising their children for Christ. She is also deeply committed to encouraging Christians to serve the poor and oppressed, and practicing racial reconciliation as a testimony to the world the power of the gospel.
