"You Were Born for MORE" Single parent families are welcome to bring your children with you. During retreat sessions, we are offering parents a chance to attend the retreat sessions while your children receive their own Bible study and do fun crafts. Last year was our second year with 14 children attending the retreat with their parents. They will join you for worship and then have the opportunity to have their own time. No babysitting services are provided at the retreat. Join us and build awesome memories with your children at the retreat!

Do you also find the “higher” the purpose is, the more rewarding and enjoyable it is?  The same principles apply to dating.  God designed each of us for a unique purpose.  Why not integrate that with both how and who we choose to date?  In this interactive workshop, Blaine Carman, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Author and Dating Coach, will provide you with tools and strategies to get clear on your purpose in dating and how to use dating to serve the Higher Purpose of serving God!  Read Bio

Teacher & Speaker 

"Finding Your Identity for Healthy Relationships" This workshop will help you discover who you are when you encounter times of loss, such as, relationship, divorce or health. We can get spiritual amnesia forgetting who we are because of our past or a bad breakup. We need to go back and find out, who am I? God wants us to become who He made us to be. We can find our own identity in Christ and not be defined by someone else or by our past, but ready for healthy relationships.   Read Bio
