About Us

Perhaps the most notable difference between Whisper Gathering and other women’s retreats is the intentional emphasis on repentance of sin. Each day comes with a time of worship, Scripture teaching, examination of our own hearts in the light of God’s Word, and active repentance using a variety of innovative hands-on tools.

About Whisper Gathering

The Whisper Gathering is a women’s retreat designed to equip women to be still enough to hear the still small voice of God and encourage them to obey in a lifelong walk of discipleship. The name comes from Elijah’s experience described in 1 Kings 19. When the Lord passed by, His voice was audible in the “sound of a gentle whisper.”  (1 Kings 19:12)

Whisper weekends allow ample opportunities for powerful worship, in-depth Scripture lessons, small group team building, and opportunities to make deep connections with other women. They are usually held in a “camp-style” setting to allow both outdoor and indoor sessions. Fun activities include a “crafty” lesson designed to expand the weekend’s theme with hands-on learning, table choirs, nightly s’mores by the fire pit, and lots of laughter.


"A Life Changing Weekend!"

What happens at Whisper Gathering? Great worship. Solid Biblical teaching. Small group work. Deep sharing. Crafts. Cabin choirs. Lakeside morning devotions. Lots of great food. S'mores every night. Laughter. Fun. Chocolate. We leave refreshed, renewed, restored.

The Whisper Gathering, a three-day retreat for Christian women, is coming to Mississippi April 26-28, 2024. This life-changing event is designed to equip participants to be still and hear the still small voice of God and encourages a lifelong walk of obedience and discipleship. The weekend is filled with great worship, in-depth Bible study, life-changing introspection, lots of laughter, new friends, and (it's a tradition) nightly s'mores.

Last October, my prayer life was changed forever (for the better). I met up with some strangers on the Internet (sorry Mom) in a state I’d never been to, and went to my first ever Whisper Gathering prayer retreat. I can never put into words how much I needed that prayer retreat (and I’m a writer 😂).
God showed up big at Whisper 2022. We saw women eager for God. Wives and mothers interceding for their families, and grand mamas relentlessly standing in the gap for their grandchildren. God stirred up a boldness and a gentleness in these women that I wholeheartedly believe God is using to pull families and communities closer to Him. It was an incredible weekend. And when all was over and the weekend was done it was clear to so many of us that God Himself was far from done. This freedom that He was giving wasn't confined to just that one event. We're beyond excited to gather for the next one!
