Where is ABOUND?
The 2019 Abound retreat will be held just outside Raleigh NC. For security purposes we will release the exact location in your confirmation email after you register. We can tell you it’s within 45 minutes of the Raleigh RDU Airport.

Who should come?
YOU! Like we said before there is no criteria that you have to meet to attend. This is for the gal that desperately wants to follow God’s purpose for her life. To use the things she is uniquely crafted for to bring Him glory and make an impact in this world. This is for the dreamer, the mom, the college student, the recently divorced, the mom & daughter, the creative, the CEO, the homebody, and the world changer. This is for anyone desiring to take the next step in God’s plan for their lives, even if you don’t know what that is yet.

What does the schedule look like?
Registration opens on the afternoon of July 12th, 
Please see the schedule section of our site for
full details.

more FAQ's

What if I’ve never been to a conference before?

Well you’re gonna love it. This isn’t your typical retreat, so shake that off right now. We aren’t about stuffy ballrooms, or running from break out to break out until you want to pass out. Our all-main-stage retreat, in a gorgeous and unique wedding venue makes this a unique, fresh, relationally driven and creatively inspirational event. Trust us, you’re gonna love it. We can’t wait to meet you!

I’m a nursing mom, can I bring my baby?

Oh girl, we get that for sure. We’ve been there. While this event was designed for grown women, we make an exception when it comes to wee little babies who need their mamas. So please feel free to bring your little one with the understanding that if they are causing an interruption, we kindly expect that you’ll take them out of the main event area. Due to the type of venue we’ve booked, it’s really only a fitting environment for babies who are being held, or in their strollers. Please make other arrangements if your baby is over 8 months of age, or if they are mobile.

Can I sponsor the event or advertise my product there?

This retreat is meant to be more intimate than our national conference.  If you'd like to sponsor our national conference, please contact us and we can set you up.  

What is there to eat around here?
Oh you know I wouldn’t plan an event without thinking of food. We planned the venue specifically with food in mind. There are several places to eat nearby.  You're going to have a hard time choosing!

Do you have any scholarships?

We do not have scholarships available. We specifically set out to make the tickets for this event doable for anyone and everyone. If you’re worried about the cost, make sure to get your ticket during Early Bird, and hit up one of our speakers for a coupon code.

more FAQ's

Do I need a rental car?

If you’re flying, renting a car is a great option because there is just SO much to see in the area, and it would probably end up being more cost effective than ubering everywhere. Especially if you split a car with other attendees. So grab some girlfriends and make a weekend of it, or connect with others in our attendee only group.

Do you have reserved hotel blocks?
We did not reserve any hotel blocks, but have our favorite hotels listed on the INFO page. Feel free to room alone, or grab some friends and make a girls trip out of it!

Where should I fly in?
RDU Raleigh  is the closest airport. Depending on the time of day and traffic, it should take about 45 minutes to get from the airport to the venue.

Does my ticket include both days?
Yes, your ticket includes everything for both days.

Is my food included?
Food is not included, but that’s why we chose a venue that is so close to such incredible restaurants.  

Is there a cancellation or refund policy?
Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds for lost, stolen, damaged or unused tickets after purchase. 

What should I wear?
Come as you are sister friend. This is your time. Your few days away. If you want to come in yoga pants, or a gorgeous dress and heels, you’re welcome to. Or do some of both. There will be all sorts of styles showing up from all over the country, so please just wear what feels best on your skin.  

What if I don’t know anyone?
Girl I promise you’re not the only one who doesn’t know anyone. If you don’t have anyone to come with, please don’t let that stop you. It’s going to be SO incredible, and you should lean into that nudge that is tugging your heart to join us. We will have a dedicated area for people to hang out and meet each other if they came on their own, as well as a private FB group to get to know others before the event starts.  

What should I bring?
Honestly, just yourself is perfect. We suggest bringing something to take notes in as you’ll be wishing you had one once you got there. 

Is there parking on site?
Yes, there is plenty of parking.

What if I want time in Raleigh?
Girl, you should definitely want to take time in Raleigh! There is so much to see and explore, you should grab some girlfriends, take the whole week off, and make it a vacay! Our team will be putting together a Raleigh Adventure Guide with must see things to explore!

Is seating assigned?
There is no assigned seating. However, there are reserved sections depending on which level ticket you purchase.

Can I buy a ticket there?

No, all tickets must be purchased in advance, and none will be available at the door. 

Can I transfer my ticket to someone else?
Yes! If you need to transfer your ticket (or if you bought a ticket for someone else) just contact us and we will get it taken care of for you.


We felt a very specific call to make this event affordable for EVERY WOMAN.  Our EARLY BIRD tickets are a steal starting at just $299.
