A Time Away for Pastors and Deacons

Camp Joy is more than just a retreat from everyday pressures. It’s a place specially designed for spiritual growth.

Camp Joy’s Pastor and Deacon’s Retreat is the perfect opportunity for men to get away and enjoy some great preaching, as well as have some quiet time alone with the Lord. Meeting spaces are available for groups that would like to meet while they are at camp. There are many fun attractions for a weekend of stress relief, along with great food and fellowship. Set aside some time to be refreshed physically and spiritually. Join us for the weekend!

 Date: January 6-7, 2023

Speaker: Pastor Rick Arrowood

The heart-beat of Pastor Arrowood is three-fold: evangelizing the lost as set forth in Acts 1:8; edifying the local church in love as found in Ephesians 4:16, and encouraging families to life godly in the present evil world as described in Titus 2:12. He loves people and is a gifted expositor of the Scriptures. You will find his preaching warm, and didactic, making practical application personal, appealing and necessary for the believer.
