Made For This: Ladies' Retreat

Made for this #3

Everyone of us face daily challenges and its hard to see our purpose and greater call in the routine of our everyday lives. Whether life seems good or not God has more for you. We all have been uniquely designed for more. We get to partner with God to accomplish his mission on earth.

In the mundane of life we can easily dismiss the mandate on our lives. Whether it be in the workplace or our homes we have a platform of influence that God wants to use for His glory.

Not only does God invite us to this great adventure but he also uniquely designed us for it. You were made for this. Made to bring beauty to every space you occupy. Made to point others to the wonder of Jesus. Made to fight the good fight of faith. Made to walk in the freedom of His love. Made to reveal the glory of God. Our desire is that you will get a fresh vision for the higher call on your life. You were made for this beloved!

WHAT: A weekend retreat for you and the women in your life to get away in order to be refreshed, renewed and refocus.

Lynette Franklin

Youth Session Speaker


Lynnette communicated early on a real passion for assisting people to gain awareness of better health and hope. This passion matured and developed when she went to study as a member of the first class of The Global Leadership Training Center (GLTC) in Winston Salem, NC. Her studies opened the door for her to minister on every continent.

 Upon graduating she returned home, spearheaded and led a Mission Trip to Ghana in West Africa in 2005 then began a local youth outreach called “Teens Going Global for Jesus.” During her work in missions the Lord planted a vision within her to one day have a significant ministry in missions, which would include BRINGING HEALING IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE.  She envisioned Medical and Missions working together, particularly to set in motion the concept of helping people spiritually and naturally in addressing health and hope. For Lynette, “Coupling the great commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, with being licensed to gain resources in this world to heal, brings a great sense of fulfillment.” Today she is in the process of obtaining her Master’s Degree (MSN) to become a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).

 Lynnette is married to Lazerrick, and together they parent seven children and are working diligently to instill vision and destiny in their family.
