Father-Daughter Retreat - October 27-29, 2017

This year take time out of your busy schedule to rekindle that special relationship with your father or daughter. Fathers and daughters (12 and older) will enjoy this encouraging weekend of top notch Biblical teaching and excellent worship times mixed with just the right amount of bonding activities and relaxing times.

Ride a horse in the national forest, trap shoot, jump off the Leap of Faith, tie dye a shirt together, or just go for a walk. Every part of the weekend is intentional with the hopes of giving fathers a chance to be an example to their daughters, with words and actions, of what a Godly man looks like. Take advantage of this great opportunity for making lifelong memories and recharging your spiritual batteries.
