Special Appearances

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the Women’s Retreat. Please contact us if you don’t see the answer to a question you have. We are always happy to help!
Do I need to reserve my own lodging?

Yes. To synchronize with other convention programmed events (YEC, Spring Retreat, Youth Camp), Churches will need to make their own lodging arrangements. Consider calling the cabin owner your youth uses in the summer. You may also contact cabin owners to see if they are offering a per bed rate (typically $10.00 – $25.00 each). Cabin information can be found at fallscreekok.org/cabins.

My church wants to host the retreat as a simulcast. How much does it cost?
If you plan to host more than twenty women, the Host Church registration is a great option! For $500, your church can host the Women’s Retreat live for the ladies in your church or community. Individual registration with Oklahoma Baptist Women is not required with the Host Church option.

If less than twenty women plan to gather for the event, we recommend the Digital Pass ($25) or the Deluxe Digital Pass ($50). Just like our event at Falls Creek, registration is required for each attendee under the two Digital Pass options. Women can register on our website. For information on who has registered from your church, simply email us at women@oklahomabaptists.org. We will reply with names and contact information.

We are a host church. Are we able to play all the sessions on Saturday and make it a one-day event?

Sessions will be available for replay at the conclusion of each session. There will not be the ability to rewind during the session when it is “live”.

What are the technical requirements needed at my church to host a simulcast?

What You Need:

  • A computer and internet connection.
  • A screen or projector to display the livestream.
  • A minimum of 1 Mbps continuous download speed.

How do I test my internet connection?

We recommend that the minimum connection be 1 Mbps (1 Mbps for good quality; 5 Mbps for best quality) download speed.

You may test your connection’s speed by going to speedtest.net. If your download speed is less than the suggested minimum, then you have some options:

  1. Connect at the lowest quality we broadcast with (500k) and understand that the quality of the stream may be a bit less than you are used to;
  2. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and request a faster connection. In some cases, your current provider may offer higher rates of speed for the same rate you are already paying.

Computer Requirements

  • Please ensure your computer is up-to-date with any operating system or web browser updates.
  • We recommend using at minimum: Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.7 or Ubuntu 10.
  • We recommend using one of the following browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox, MS Edge, Safari, or Opera at its latest version.
  • It can help to close other tabs, browsers, and programs while streaming your video.
  • It may also help to hardwire your Internet connection, instead of using a wireless network connection.

In short – If you can watch YouTube videos on the computer you will be using to view our livestream then you should be just fine.

What if I register for the in-person retreat and can’t attend?
Registration is non-refundable. However, your registration can be changed to a Digital Pass. Please notify us to make this change.
I am the group leader for my church. Can you provide me with a list and contact information for those who have registered with my church?
Absolutely!  Email us at women@oklahomabaptists.org to receive a list!
Is my group able to stay in a cabin on Friday night?
Lodging may be booked through cabin owners. Information can be found on Falls Creek’s website at fallscreek.org.
