Announcing our 9th Annual Spring Marriage Retreat!

This year we will be featuring Pastor Mike Stanley of Friendship Baptist Church in Highland, AR. Bro. Stanley has been married to his wife, the former Peggy Gaines, for 37 years in June. The couple has been blessed with eight children and 21 grandchildren. Each of their married children’s families and son Jonathan, of the home, serve the Lord faithfully. Bro. Stanley is in his 36th year of full-time ministry.  He travels several times each year preaching conferences and meetings on the home and family. Our family and countless other’s have been blessed by this man and his incredible ministry. We are honored to have him share powerful Biblical truths on the home and marriage.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC’s “Counting On” will also be joining us on Saturday evening for a special time of sharing. Every year they graciously offer their time to come out and meet with the couples, as well as share encouraging truths they have learned over the years!

Q. Can I Bring My Nursing Baby?

A. Yes! Nursing babies that are up to 18 months old are allowed. Please, no other children, we want you and your spouse to completely focus on the Lord and each other!

Q. I Have Special Dietary Needs…?

A. Unfortunately, at this time we cannot tailor our menu to every need. Our campers normally find that they only have to substitute a few items on the menu and will usually bring an ice chest, using our microwave in the cook’s kitchen. If you would like to have a copy of our menu, simply email us at and we’ll be happy to send it to you!
