Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. What is the Reveal Retreat?
A. Each year at the conclusion of The Esther Project Challenge, the Esther sisterhood gathers at the Reveal Retreat for the pinnacle experience in taking our position as intentional leaders and ambassadors for women's empowerment. It is a safe place to let go and allow God to minister to you while being surrounded by loving caring sisters. The Reveal Retreat is the vehicle that God uses to launch us into our purpose!
Annually, we begin the retreat with a spa oasis at Sojo Spa Club, a unique indoor/outdoor pampering experience with the dramatic NYC skyline backdrop.
