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 5-6, 2024

Speaker: Director John Moore

Camp Joy started the Camp Joy Teen Fuel leadership program, May 2021. God blessed this unique 2 week, 12 person class program well beyond what we ever thought. Others asked for FUEL versions to be crafted for christian schools, adult church conferences, and other leadership teams. We will share selected sessions during the Pastors & Deacons Retreat. A number of teens who have gone through FUEL expressed that people in church need this!
