Women's Retreat #2: September 29 - October 1
Encounter and engage in God’s presence this fall at Sugar Pine Christian Camps Women’s Retreats.

(Psalm 16:11) We invite you to grow, relax, and enjoy a weekend retreat away with us!
Nashville recording artist Jill Miller recently released her 5th CD, “King of Kings.” Recorded at the famed Starstruck Studio in Nashville, the project has already been called “an epic compilation of the most beautiful Christmas music in decades.” Jill has opened for the legendary Loretta Lynn and Brian Littrell (of the Backstreet Boys), performed a duet with NewSong, and sang the national anthem for President Bush and 11,000 people when he was in Sioux City. Jill has also performed at the legendary Bluebird Café in Nashville.
Jill is also a certified speaker, coach and teacher with the John Maxwell Team and recently started a new business entitled Transformational Leadership and Coaching. She speaks at women’s retreats and other events across the country. Jill lives in Sioux City with her husband, John, and their two rescue dogs. They have four adult sons.
Rachel is a down-to-earth, coffee-drinking, jeans and t-shirt kinda girl, hailing from Nashville, TN. She loves to ignite fresh faith through music, speaking, writing, and laughter. Her battle through prolonged pain and illness has deepened her messages and music. Full of joy, Jesus, and animation, Rachel's listeners are skillfully invited into a deeper, authentic place with God.
Rachel has garnered awards from the Gospel Music Association and shared the stage with artists such as TobyMac, Matthew West, and MercyMe. She lives with her teddy-bear husband Derek, and their beloved dog, Joey Smiley Wiggle Socks.
