We are ecstatic about the work that God has commission to our hands and how we've been able to minister to Women of God from up and down the east coast.
Our annual retreat which is co-convened by The Reverend Doctor Natalie P. Alford, The Reverend Doctor Kim W. Anderson, The Reverend Doctor Erika D. Crawford, The Reverend Kimberly L. Detherage, J.D. and The Reverend Andrea M. Hargett is the culmination of prayers, the manifestation of hard work and a testimony of sisterhood. The High Heels Retreat is packed with powerful, prevalent, and purposeful wordshops and worship that will ignite you, excite you, inspire you and forever change your life. It is our hope that you will join us as we walk with God, put on our High Heels and head for Higher Ground!!!
Jehovah, the Lord, is my strength; And he maketh my feet like hinds' feet, And will make me to walk upon my high places. Habakkuk 3:19 ASV
This verse is part of a prayer, which the prophet Habakkuk spoke of in faith, to the Lord. In his prayer, Habakkuk asked the Lord to renew His deeds of awesome wonder and power and for His praise to fill the whole earth; for the glory of God to be known to all who dwell on earth. Furthermore, in the days when it seemed that everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, Habakkuk speaks with the assurance of knowing that God still has the power to make things happens.
Why hinds' feet? Have you ever thought about how graceful deer are. Just take a moment to visualize them running and jumping in their swiftness, through hardship, adversity and disappointment. Even in the most rugged of places the deer climbs higher and higher; and not one foot slips. Habakkuk's prayer and our prayer is that the Lord make us like the deer, pursuing the heights of God's presence, power and purpose everyday; seeking to go higher in God; to new elevations and places; climbing high
HHSHG is the vision & manifestation of Sisterly Love and God’s grace. Birthed in 2013, out of a 2009 fellowship between four female pastors and their congregations.
HHSHG has evolved into an affordable opportunity for five female Pastors to bring Christian Women to come together Annually to retreat and be refreshed, revived and renewed. We are blessed to serve women from up and down the East Coast.
The logo represents the strength, diversity, confidence, faith and unity of the visionaries and the women they minister to, as they walk in the High Places of God.
Our colors are Purple and Orange. Purple was chosen because it is the most powerful wave length in the rainbow and a rarity in nature. Likewise orange is a color of significance as it represents vitality and endurance. Combined our colors reflect the power, rarity, vitality and endurance of the ministry.
The five visionaries of HHSHG coveted with God and each other to make ministry and sisterhood a priority; therefore the purpose of this ministry is to encourage women in their walk with God. It is our hope that every time we come together, the women who experience our retreats feel like they have been taken higher in the Lord.
Additionally, we understand that ministry is never self-serving, so we ask the women who attend our retreat to bring a pair of shoes. During the weekend we provide an opportunity for the women to share the story of those shoes (either new or worn) in our Sole to Soul fellowship. At the end of the retreat, we collect the shoes and donate them to a women's charity.
