Truth of the Beloved - Retreat

NOTE:  Very few rooms left - When they are all gone, there will be a notice posted here. Otherwise, it is fine to register. 

  • Would you like a break from the cares of the world, getting away and relaxing in a beautiful, peaceful setting?
  • Would you like to study/learn/hear the Word of God, taught through captivating messages, then activated and sealed through dance ministry activations?
  • Would you like to sharpen your spiritual acumen and receive ministry through prophetic dance?
  • Would you like to fellowship with like-hearted believers?
  • Then this retreat is for you!

Jesus, the eternal Beloved of the Father, was born in human form,

entered time and space to show us the truth, tell us the truth, awaken

us to truth. He claimed to be truth incarnate. He claimed that His

truth would outlast this present universe. He validated His truth with

mighty works. He claimed that if we live His truth, our lives will be

built on a rock foundation that will endure forever.

As the world around us disintegrates, we have an enduring foundation

— Jesus, the Word of God, the eternal truth of God. We can root our

lives in the truth of the Beloved and His truth and life will sustain us

through time and into eternity. ~ W. Bozeman

With Lynn M Hayden (click here for bio)

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 worship dance DVD’s and administrates a successful on line ministry dance school. Lynn assisted the choreographer and danced in Integrity Hosanna’s music video “Sing Out” with Ron Kenoly; and has traveled, teaching Dancing For Him Conferences for 20 years. As founder, director and administrator for the Dancing For Him ONLINE SCHOOL, Lynn is a gifted leader of leaders. Her graduates have grown substantially in their call to dance for the Lord. Many people mentored by Lynn, over the years, have successfully gone on to have their own dance teams, hold their own workshops, choreograph beautiful ministry dances and even write their own books. The school has enabled Lynn to perpetuate her legacy of transforming hearts and changing lives, through ministry dance. 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!

And Wil Bozeman

For over 30 years, Wil has ministered in a variety of settings as a pastor, teacher and musician. Throughout his ministry he has also worked with the homeless, at-risk youth and has translated truth into the rhythms and colors of story telling. He is a singer/songwriter and accomplished musician. Wil is a prolific writer and has written many books about worship, prayer, leadership and more. In addition to gifted creativity, his ability to transcribe scripture into life changing messages captivates the listener, while gently presenting the Lord's healing balm.

A dance we learned during a retreat:

Website this year's retreat location

So come and let us journey together in this most wonderful of all studies -- the life and ministry of Jesus (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

The price is already the low 'group rate,' if you have more than 2, simply put the appropriate number of people in the quantity box. 

If you desire a combination of types of rooms, you may still do that at check out.

Here is an example of how to check out a group:

"I have 7 people in my group. 4 of them would like to share 2 rooms and the remaining 3 people would each like a private room."  

You would initially put 2 in the quantity box. That will pay for the 4 people who want to share rooms. 

Then 'continue shopping.' 

Come back to the retreat page and select 3 in the quantity box, but be sure to select "private room" in one of the drop down selections. That will pay for 3 private rooms. 

 Please be sure to put each person's names, email addresses, who would like to stay with whom and their appropriate T-shirt sizes in each of the spaces provided. 

If you need more help, you may call: 863-398-8161 9-5 EST and we will be happy to help you.
