This retreat is specifically designed for Christian women creatives, who desire to follow God bravely, and passionately into the next season.   Whether you need the practical tools and guidance to take your business to the next level, you have a big dream that you don't know how to launch, your business is rocking but your home life is suffering, or you don't even know what you want to do, but you know God is up to something, and you need help navigating the next step, THIS is the retreat for you!

The speakers, coaches, and staff are extremely passionate about helping women like you uncover their dreams, unleash them into their calling.  It seems as though every women I talk to is overworked, overwhelmed, and just plain exhausted.  We are so busy working at our businesses, and projects, that we barely have time to think about, or act on, what we truly want our businesses, and our lives to be.  

We’ve carved out this 3 day experience to give you the space to breathe again.  A place to dream, and laugh, and sleep in, and drink wine with sand between your toes.  We have brought in incredible speakers, and coaches who have built lives and businesses that are truly life-giving, and allow them the margin to enjoy what matters most in their lives.

And we want the same for YOU!  Imagine having a life of
More margin & less stress
More profit & less hours working
More YOU time & less busy just to be busy
More cuddles & less computer
More laughing & less tension headaches
More contentment & less striving
More authentic friendships & less proving
More innovative ideas & less spinning the hamster wheel
More of what you love & less of what drains your soul

We were created for MORE of the stuff that matters, MORE of what makes you come fully alive!   If you're feeling worn out, overwhelmed, overworked, frustrated, alone, and like you just can't turn a profit no matter how many hours you work, it's time for you to hit the reset button, and redesign your life to be full of more passion, purpose, profit & play!

Join us this February, and we WILL help you get back to a life you love!


Come hang out with, and learn from some of the top  industry thought leaders who will transform the way you think about your business, your faith, and your life.

Women today are overloaded more today than ever.  We desperately want to matter, to do something that will last, and to make our greatest impact on our families, our communities, and the Kingdom of God.  Yet with the pace of society, and the limitless options, it can be nearly impossible to know how to navigate seasons, opportunites, and our neverending stream of dreams, and ideas.

But don't fret any longer!  We are here to help!

This February, join us for a life-changing 3 day retreat created to help you wind down, hear the whispers of God, and draft a roadmap for where He wants to take you next.

Through inspirational & practical talks from industry leaders, times of intimate worship, and small group coaching sessions, we guarantee that you will leave this experience with clarity, pease, purpose, and a newfound clarity 
to take on 2017 with joy, focus, and the tools to actually make your dreams happen!

Session Topics Include:

Finding your Niche: trailblazing & finding your sweet spot with Shay Cochrane

What People are Saying

"Being at Pursuit Conference was a catapult into an exciting journey with God and my new business. It equipped me with some wonderful resources while also filling my life with truth that gave me the confidence to walk into the next season of life!!”
Danielle Dortch

"I never thought I would have friends that I could connect with on the deepest and most personal and important levels.  The people I met at Pursuit are real, genuine, and sincere in their love for one another.  It's sisterhood."
Emily Ley

"Being at Pursuit was an eye opening, Spirit-filled experience.  When I went, I didn't even know why I was there, and I left inspired to follow God's calling on my life.  Since attending I have quit my corporate job, and am working as a photographer- truly living my dream."
Melissa Moliterno

I want to come so badly, but I’m scared because I don’t know anyone.  
Will I be all alone?

Not a chance darlin’! We have been in your shoes.  Just because we know lots of people now, doesn’t mean we always did.  We’ve been the girl who showed up alone, and knew no one at her table.  We’ve been the one that felt like just a number at a huge conference, and left without meeting anyone.  Pursuit is NOT that type of event.  

Even if you know a ton of people, we operate like everyone doesn’t know each other.  We go out of our way to ensure that everyone feels like they belong, and that no one feels left behind. Our small groups are at the core of this value system.  We place every attendee in a small group with a handful of other women, and an incredible leader.  This gives you a “home” for the few days you’re with us, and a sisterhood of new friends that automatically have your back.

I'd love to connect with others to find roommates or share rental car costs, will there be a way to meet other attendees before the event?

ABSOLUTELY!  We will be adding everyone to a private FB group just for attendees.  This will be a really fun way to connect with each other, get to know people before you arrive, and collaborate on lodging and travel.

Do I have to stay at the hotels suggested or can I commute from somewhere else?

Where you stay is entirely up to you.  Of course it is our desire that we have a great big sorority style beach bash at the Zomaro, but we know that isn’t feasible for everyone.  So feel free to stay wherever you are most comfortable.

All of the classes, coaching and parties WILL NOT be at the hotel, so where you stay isn't a huge factor.

Our classes will be at Tampa Bay Watch which is a wedding venue south of Tampa. 

There is a schedule above if you'd like to know more about when and where things will be. 

Travel Details:

What Airport should I fly into?
Tampa (TPA) is the nearest airport.  It's about 30 minutes from the resort.

How should I get from the Airport to the Hotel?

There are plenty of options for getting around, especially since everything is so close.   The hotel has a concierge service that can connect you with shuttles, and private car services.  Many of our attendees rent cars together, or take ubers as well.  We don’t want to ruin any surprises, but please keep in mind that there will be some activities/ classes that will take place off of the resort property, so you will want to have access to a car, uber, or taxi during your stay.


I’m a nursing Mama, am I allowed to bring my baby?

Unlike our past Pursuit events, YES, you are allowed to bring babies 6 months and younger.  If you choose to bring your baby, please keep in mind that others have come to be able to be present during classes and not distracted.  If your baby starts to be a distraction, or gets really loud, we ask that you’d simply excuse yourself from that session or small group time.

I’ve wanted to come to Pursuit for years, but this looks different than the other events. Should I still come, or wait until you are back at Winshape?

This is a very good question.  Over the past 5 years, Winshape has become a second home for Pursuit, and all of our attendees.  We absolutely LOVE it there, and we cannot wait to go back in the Spring of 2019.  

We would LOVE to see you there, but since our next Winshape Conference is so far away, we highly encourage you to join us at one of our other incredible events, like this one in Tampa!

What about Payment Plans & Refunds?

Do you have payment plans available?

YES!  Absolutely!  You can reserve your seat for just $249 and we will set you up with a payment plan to get your reservation completed.
Just copy and paste this link in your browser, and we will get you all set up!
* Coupon codes ARE valid with the payment plan options.. there is a field to add your coupon code during registration.  We will minus your coupon code savings from the final amount, and then apply your deposit/retainer.  Your payment plan will be divided from the remaining balance.

If I purchase a ticket and I have to cancel, will I get a refund?

Since our Tampa retreat is just around the corner, we hope this won’t be the case, but we do understand that things come up.  We aren’t able to give refunds for tickets purchased, but we can give you a Pursuit event credit if you need to cancel.  That event credit will be for the amount you paid for this ticket, and can be applied to any other Pursuit event in the future.
