Providing space for women to connect and grow in Christ.

“Nestled in the forest, in the Fraser Canyon, this is a place to get away from the hurries and worries of every day. Spend a tranquil afternoon in the shade of the towering trees. Hear the music of the songbirds. Feel the fresh mountain air on your face. This is what it means to retreat.”  – Camp Squeah, Hope, BC

Oasis is a 3 day ladies retreat that takes place during the first weekend of March at Camp Squeah Retreat Centre in Hope, BC.

The retreat is a christian women’s ministry of the Canada Pacific District, Church of the Nazarene. We encourage women from all denominations and walks-of-life to join us for this fun weekend away from the usual responsibilities. The retreat has 3 main purposes: (1) to give women a space that is restful, fun and safe, (2) provide opportunity for women to build deeper connections, (3) encourage growth in Christ through scripture application, wholistic worship, and conversations with God and others. We hope you will join us March 2-4, 2018. Click here for more information regarding our values. 


Connie CavanaughWe are pleased to welcome author Connie Cavanaugh, to be our guest speaker for Oasis 2018.

Connie Cavanaugh is as real as it gets. Her laugh-until-it-hurts story telling combined with sensible biblical teaching leaves audiences wanting more. Her greatest gift is a transparency that gives women permission to relax, be real, and find hope.

Connie’s best-selling book From Faking it to Finding Grace reveals her 10-year season of spiritual dryness while married to the minister. It offers hope for those who hide their doubts behind a Sunday-morning smile. Her sequel Following God One Yes at a Time outlines a post-wilderness faith: a simple, doable Christ-centered relationship that works in the real world.

Connie and her husband Gerry Taillon (pronounced Tie-Yo) have three adult children (all married) and six grandchildren (so far). When she’s at home, Connie enjoys her garden, reading, Netflix, online Scrabble, hiking, biking, games and outings with the grandkids.
