Vine of Grace is a retreat ministry offering adult women of all ages and faiths the opportunity to deepen their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We are called to be a ministry of repentance, deliverance, healing, obedience & evangelization.The retreat experience is a celebration of our faith through the sharing of the Good News, praise and worship, prayer, personal reflection, teaching, testimony, sacraments, and a deeper anointing of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Renewed by God's transforming grace and strengthened by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we are called to go forth to bear fruit in our marriages, family, work place, relationships, church and community. Come and be nourished by the Vine of Grace: Christ Himself.

History & Vision

Gloria and ErinIn March 2000, while attending a Christian conference in Phoenix, Arizona, Erin Blanchette & Gloria Roberts simultaneously recognized God’s voice calling them to establish a women’s retreat ministry. Within a few minutes the name, Vine of Grace, emerged as they both agreed that John 15:5 was to be the ministry's scriptural foundation.

Having worked together in teen ministry, they had experienced a successful format for teen retreats and realized with a few adjustments they could develop a dynamic and anointed women’s ministry. Four months later they were offering their first retreat in Morenci, Arizona.  Beginning with a team of four, the ministry has now grown to a team of 25 plus wonderful women of Grace. The ministry has an incredible music ministry, intercessory prayer ministry, offers pilgrimages, and sponsors special events each year. Vine of Grace is also a 501 c 3 organization.


Vine of Grace currently travels throughout Arizona holding several retreats a year, as well as, one Weekend of Worship conference. The team will travel wherever they are invited and offers many retreat formats and themes including parish staff training and retreats, parish council retreats, parish missions and advent & Lenten retreats.

The ministry hopes to ultimately minister nationwide and internationally offering retreats and developing retreat ministry teams through a mentoring & training program.
