Join us for an unforgettable weekend away in charming downtown Greenville, SC. You won’t want to miss out on this refreshing, fun, and purposeful opportunity to reflect on our unshakable God and connect with other women from Perimeter. With a relaxed schedule, there is plenty of time for fellowship, fun, prayer, rest, or exploring downtown Greenville. After a year that has left many shaken, we wanted to take some time away to hear and reflect on who our God is and how we can rest in His unchanging character.  We are so excited that this year we have three different speakers, Laura Story Elvington, Ruth Chou Simons, and Karen Ellis who will all be encouraging us from God’s word about our Unshakable God!  We hope you can come away with us and be refreshed together.
 
Nursing moms are welcome with infants up to six months.

Our Speakers

LAURA STORY ELVINGTON

Laura is a songwriter, a worship leader, writer, speaker, and artist and yet is an unassuming woman. Her Grammy-nominated songs, as well as her books Blessings, When God Doesn’t Fix It, I Give Up, and So Long Normal, have brought hope to millions around the world. Traveling for concerts, retreats, leading worship for us at Perimeter, and loving the life she shares with her husband Martin, and children Josie, twin boys Ben and Griffin, and Timothy are everyday gifts of mercy in her life she shares.


RUTH CHOU SIMONS

Ruth Chou Simons is a best-selling author, artist, and speaker, using each of these platforms to spiritually sow the Word of God into people's hearts. Ruth is the artist and founder behind GraceLaced Co., which features her unique style of art paired with biblical truth. Ruth's artwork is treasured by a worldwide audience, who are connected through the beauty and truth found in social media content, and through her best-selling books GraceLaced: Discovering Timeless Truths Through Seasons of the Heart and Beholding and Becoming: The Art of Everyday Worship. Simons shares her experience of God's grace through her ministry, business, writing, and social media, and is also a wife and mom to six boys.


KAREN ELLIS

Karen Ellis is the Director of the Edmiston Center for the Study of the Bible and Ethnicity in Atlanta, Georgia. She’s passionate about theology, human rights and global religious freedom. Mrs. Ellis is a Research Fellow for World Christianity with Reformed Theological Seminary. Since 2006, she has collaborated with the Swiss-based charity International Christian Response, traveling internationally advocating for global religious freedom. She has written for Christianity Today, The Reformed African American Network, Urban Faith Magazine, The Gospel Coalition, and others.
