2020 Retreats & Trip Dates
We are excited to announce some of the amazing things we have planned for 2020. Because our hearts are for discipleship, we are expanding our offerings to include more personal retreat options, as well as our staple serving trips. Maybe God is calling you to step out in faith and join us for one or more of these adventures with Him? Will you pray about it?
Women's Retreat Feb 28 - Mar 1 (Registration Deadline Jan 22)
January is the perfect time to invest in yourself. The end of the year is filled with so much activity and it's important to take time away and get refocused. Spend time with other women getting refreshed, releasing burdens you aren't meant to carry, and refocusing on what God has for you in 2020. This will be an intimate gathering in a cabin located in the North Georgia mountains, and only 7 women will be able to participate this time. We pray you will be one of them! Deadline to register is January 22, with an $95 deposit. Total event cost is $189 and covers food, lodging, and event costs. Find out more.
Summer India Serving Trip - (Application Deadline Mar 22)
This is a 10-day trip where we will serve women and children at risk (or in the middle) of being sex trafficked. It is estimated that in the last 30 years, over 30 million women and children in Asia have been trafficked for sexual exploitation. To combat this issue, our partners provide for women and children with food, education and Christ's love. They offer a place where the whole person is ministered to spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and financially. Our main focus in India will be on preventing human trafficking by empowering and equipping at-risk women and children with skill-sets and education. There are many ways we will help- from helping women with product development (making jewelry and sewing items) at the vocational training center, to mentoring children in our after-school programs, to assisting the toddlers in preschool, to tutoring teenagers in classes and life-skills training for both men and women. Find out more.
Ghana Serving Trip - July 9 - 19 (Application Deadline Feb 22)
Over 50,000 children are put to work in Ghana as fishermen, and it is estimated that 60% of them were sold and/or kidnapped into this role. Thankfully, our partner, City of Refuge Ministries (CORM) helps to offer safe housing, education, and holistic (for their body, mind, and spirit) restoration to many of these children once they are rescued. Our team will offer love and encouragement to these children as well as the staff who invest in them every day. If you have a heart for children and want to see what restoration in Christ can look like, this is the trip for you. This opportunity all happens on the 24 acres of land owned by CORM and is a safe and secure way to introduce your family to missions. Find out more.
Ghana Serving Trip - Thanksgiving Playground Build (Application Deadline Jun 15)
This team has the unique privilege of helping to install 2 playgrounds for our partners in Ghana. City of Refuge is home to 50 boys and girls who have been rescued out of extremely difficult situations- and some out of slavery. One playground will go in the courtyard for the orphaned children who call City of Refuge home. They currently have a playground that is about 10 years old (picture 1). Swings have been broken, slides are rusted, and it’s not very safe for the children anymore. The other new playground set will go near the school, which is used by about 200 children from City of Refuge as well as the local community. They’ve never had a real playground here so this will be a real treat. Will you join us? No construction experience needed. We will teach you how to do this. Ages 15 and up. Apply now.
Men's Retreat Summer 2020 (Registration Deadline Jun 1)
Join other men for some relaxing fun, fellowship, and time away. Spend time with other men seeking the Lord. You'll come home refreshed and your family will thank you. We will spend time in the North Georgia mountains by the campfire laughing, relaxing, and refocusing on what is important. There will be a special time of teaching, prayer, and fellowship. Bedrooms will vary between single, double, or bunk-bed set up and that will be determined based on order or sign ups. Deadline to register is June 1, with an $95 deposit. Total event cost is $189 and covers food, lodging, and event costs. Find out more.
