First B Women Events

We are so excited to have Mary Jo Sharp as our retreat speaker this year!  Mary Jo is a former atheist from the Pacific Northwest who thought religion was for the weak minded.  Now she holds a Masters in Christian Apologetics from Biola University and is the first woman to become a Certified Apologetics Instructor through the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.  Mary Jo is an assistant professor at Houston Baptist University and has written several books and Bible studies.

Mary Jo is a clear communicator with a heart for people.  She finds great joy in sharing the deep truths of her Lord and Savior. Check out her ministry, Confident Christianity, and her blog at:


This retreat will be at the Hallmark Resort in Newport, OR.  Registration begins in November.
