The RGI Vision
Standing knee-deep in the ocean, staring at the immense beauty God created, feeling waves crash against me; I sensed the Lord speaking to my heart. He wanted to provide a place where women who were hungry to know Him and needed to experience a fresh touch of His Spirit, could come away and stand in oceans deep.
This was not to be just another women's conference, nor was this to be a one-night pep rally ... this was more, much more. The word whispered in my spirit was “Institute”.
The word institute is from the Latin, which means, “to establish.”
It speaks of laying a foundation that supports and girds up everything else. Imagine the Eiffel Tower, one of the most recognized symbols on earth. It reaches hundreds of feet into the sky. The secret to the strength and height of the Eiffel Tower is the foundation that supports it that goes deep underground; bearing the weight of the steel structure for millions of visitors a year.
What I sensed from the Lord is that He wanted to provide a space where women could come away from the normal and have their lives formed around God's Word and His glorious vision for their lives.
To establish a firm foundation of faith and freedom that would enable women to follow Jesus out into the deep, past the break of ocean waves, where feet may fail but faith will stand!
At Redeemed Girl Institute (RGI), we hope to provide just that space. We seek to provide a time of incredible learning but also of intense worship of Jesus. The last thing we want is more information about God; we hunger for a revelation of Jesus that transforms our souls.
Redeemed Girl Institute is for women who desire to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Through a week of in-depth Bible teaching and powerful worship, RGI attendees experience a transformation that occurs only in His Presence. The goal of RGI is that a participant would learn to walk out God’s truth in her daily life.
RGI draws women from across the country who long to encounter Jesus and who want to be equipped to serve Him in their generation.
For His Glory,
