About Wendy Fitzgerald and Rebecca Leeman

Keynote Team

Wendy and Rebee are no strangers to Lake Aurora and have been impactful to our Women's Retreats for years. They are the team from the "If Then Move" ministry that weaves together solid Bibilical teaching with creative story and product. The Purpose to encourage the hearts of women to respond to what God wants to do in them and through them...'even if'.

Wendy shares powerful and compelling teaching through her writing and speaking. With almost two decades in full time ministry and a background in theater, Wendy naturally employs humor, drama and story-telling to communicate the deep truth of God's Word.

Rebee serves alongside Wendy and has a passion for missions.She sees needs that others do not see, and she does not hesitate to serve others in the place of those needs. Co-leading with Wendy, Rebee thinks about every issue from multiple perspectives and pushes one to think past their own natural bend.

Their tag team approach will have you laughing, crying, thinking, and praying about how God can use you 'even if'.

What to Bring:

This is a camp, so dress is casual. Bring comfortable shoes and a jacket for possible chilly/rainy weather.

Other suggestions are notebook, camera, flashlight, insect repellant, lawn chair (workshops have limited seating) and rain gear. Some like to bring table games for late night laughs in the game room.

Lessons Learned and continuing into 2023...

  • MOSTLY Outdoor event - Keynote sessions under Hillside Steel Tent
  • Limited enrollment and capacity in housing (18 total Beds of which 10 are lower bunks)
  • Meal times will sit by housing unit or day use status. Limited outdoor seating available
  • Self screening requested 3 days leading up to arrival (Temperature/Symptoms/Exposure)
