Cultivate Info

Welcome to the Cultivate Cohort

We are honored that you have chosen to be a part of this seven month opportunity. Thank you for allowing us to partner with you and to speak into your life. This cohort is designed with a two-fold purpose:

Catapult you to new levels of leadership.
Create a network of helpful ministry relationships.

Our prayerful expectation is that you will build new friendships, gain fresh perspectives, receive needed healing, step into your giftings, discover clear pathways of purpose, connect with helpful sponsors, network with like-minded leaders, receive empowerment and fresh anointing from the Holy Spirit.

Reading over the applications convinces us that God is up to something amazing! Our 2019-2020 Cohort is diverse in so many ways. We are different in marital and parenting status, seasons of life, geographical locations, ministry focus, age, ethnicity, and dreams. We are the same in that we all have answered the call of ministry leadership!

Throughout our seven month journey, an intercessory team, along with the cohort leadership team, will be praying for you by name. As such, I invite you to share any specific prayer requests.

Anticipation, expectation, and vision fill our hearts for this cohort. We speak life, grace, and peace to you as you enter this focused season of ministry growth, revelation, and clarification. We believe in you!

Summit Info

SUMMIT DATE: Monday, February 3 - Wednesday, February 5 (departure day Thursday, February 6)

SUGGESTED ARRIVAL: We’ll begin on Monday afternoon with a Welcome Reception at 4pm. Please plan to arrive to the summit house no later than 5pm. Everyone will receive their room assignments and have dinner at 5:30pm. If you arrive via Myrtle Beach Airport, it takes about 30 minutes to get to the house.

SUGGESTED DEPARTURE: We plan to end with an evening gathering of significance that will conclude late on Wednesday. As such, it is recommended that you plan your departure for Thursday morning, February 6. We must be departed from the house by 10am on Thursday.

AIRPORT: Myrtle Beach Airport (MYR)

GROUND TRANSPORTATION: For those flying in, we suggest using Uber or Lift to get to/from the house. As we get closer to the date, we will provide a more detailed transportation list.  We will know more after seeing how many participants are flying or driving.  We will likely have several options for getting back to the airport on Thursday morning, but this will not be finalized until closer to the event.

MEALS - Included in your Cohort Fee are the following meals: 

Monday: Dinner; Tuesday: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner; Wednesday: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner; Thursday: Simple Breakfast; All Days: Loads of Snacks!


House on Cherry Grove Beach, North Carolina (North Myrtle Beach)


To save on everyone’s personal lodging costs, we are all staying together in a beautiful, brand-new beach house.  The house has 21 bedrooms and 21 ½ baths.  It is located across the street from the beach!

Since lodging wasn't a part of the original Cultivate fee, we’re requesting that participants pay an additional $100 plus bring a few snack items to help meet our budget.  Paying less than $35 a night for a beach condo is amazing! More details to come.


As a gift, an experienced photographer will be available to take professional head shots for you. For women in ministry leadership it is a good practice to keep your professional photo updated.

Summit attire is casual.


With the date of the Summit approaching, it is important to make sure your cohort fees are paid in agreement with the payment schedule/commitment.  A Summit link will be added for your convenience. Please note your Cultivate fee includes all of the costs for the Summit programming including eight meals and snacks. Participants are responsible for their travel, ground transportation and the $100 lodging fee.  Everything else is provided.
