Come join us for a weekend away filled with solid teaching from God’s word, rest from responsibility, and fun with your friends! You won’t have to lift a finger! Delicious food, encouraging worship, and valuable time in God’s word will leave you ready to return to your home, families and work refreshed. We look forward to having you join us as we are reminded from Colossians what it means to be Rooted in Christ.


Speaker: Carissa Belford

Carissa grew up in NE Wisconsin and attended Northland Baptist Bible College, where she met and married her husband Brent, and graduated with a Biblical Counseling degree. They lead youth ministry in WV for 3 years until God called them back to Northland in 2002, so Brent could teach Bible classes. They also teamed with 4 other couples to plant a church in MI.  In July 2016, they were called to Virginia Beach to Pastor Colonial Baptist Church. 

“I love the local church, have a passion for counseling and discipling women, and sharing the gospel. I desire to live the gospel to my husband, family, and others that God leads me to.”
