July 17-19, 2020 - Burnsville, NC

(the Cross and Resurrection)

a time of withdrawal from the cares and noise of the world, 
a time where we come away for prayer, meditation, healing, and cleansing... 
while of course, we will be learning movement concepts and sharing ideas, our primary purpose is to release you to dance in high places while studying theme related topics in God's word. 

Read the following for more details about this unforgettable experience!!


Lynn Hayden
With over 50 years of dance experience behind her, Lynn has dedicated all her ballet, modern, jazz, and choreography technique to the Lord for His glory. She has performed with the Towson State University Dance Company, and the Ballet Theatre of Annapolis and and has been ministering, for the Lord, through dance, since 1986. Lynn is a well-known author of eight books on worship and prophetic dance, and producer of thirty plus instructional praise dance DVD’s and administrates a successful online ministry dance school. Lynn assisted the choreographer and danced in Integrity Hosanna’s music video “Sing Out” with Ron Kenoly, choreographed for Dawn Branch Works Eden production; and has traveled, teaching Dancing For Him Conferences since 1995. Many lives have been touched and changed by this unique, ministry. It is much more then just learning how to dance. Lynn utilizes the prophetic arts as a means by which to minister the heart of God. Lynn also ministers in dance directly to the congregation with an anointing that breaks the yoke of bondage, heals and delivers!

Video Clip of Previous Retreat


So come and let us journey together in this most wonderful of all studies -- the cross and resurrection (The Truth of the Beloved). Ponder with me these sacred mysteries:

The eternal God was born into time

the infinite Creator of all life took on the limitations of flesh

the sinless holy One bore the sin of many

the Lord of all life embraced our death

the slain Lamb rose from the dead

Let us behold His ascension to the right hand of the majesty on high and may we respond with the only fitting response of true disciples. Let us crown Him with our worship. - Wesley Scott Amos
