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 Institute (RI), 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 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, RI attendees experience a transformation that occurs only in His Presence. The goal of RI 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,

The teaching at Redeemed Institute is what every woman who is chasing after the heart of God longs for. It is hard to find that much gifting in one place, and at RI it is overflowing!
RI Is a beautiful and passionate experience … and added bonus you get to put your toes in that Florida white sand!
Each year RI moves me closer to Christ and His church. I would recommend that all women, young and wise, come to RI. The Bible teaching is solid, and the speakers are incredible! My life has been transformed by Redeemed Institute!
RI is an incredible experience for women who are seeking to grow closer to Jesus. There’s such a sweet community of women of all ages and deep biblical teachings.
I love that I can reflect on the teachings by the beach, talk with friends and ask the teachers questions. I’m thankful for what RI has been in my life and walk with God.
I wasn’t looking for community when I came to RI, but it was the biggest blessing God gave me that week! Through these life-giving relationships, I received such encouragement and motivation to live out my true identity as a redeemed girl.
