Marlene has an Interdisciplinary Studies degree focused on Business and Christian Counseling from Liberty University and is currently earning a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Marlene and Ken are currently traveling the world empowering Christian homes with the message of hope and healing!
Together, we begin the retreat on Sunday night, March 17th with registration, (after 3:00), dinner and a general session together. Monday and Tuesday include sessions with our speaker and musicians as well as small group meetings, prayer time, worship and free time. Wednesday morning we wrap up with a Prayer & Thanksgiving session and enjoy lunch before departing at 12:30 pm.
Two guests will share a room at the local Baymont Inn with adequate space to enjoy the comfort of their own bed! We plan to meet with God, get to know some new friends, and share an enriching time of fun and refreshing.
Attendance is limited to the first 50 women who register. Registration fees include three nights lodging and all meals, plus speaker and material fees. We are offering an “Early Bird” special for those who register before February 1. All retreat registrations will require a $55.00 registration deposit. (This includes commuters as well.) The remaining $75 (for “Early Birds”) will be due when arriving to the Getaway. For those registering from February 1 to March 4, a $55.00 deposit is required with $125 being due on March 26 when arriving for the Getaway. Any confirmed guests canceling a reservation after March 4, 2024 will forfeit the registration deposit. A forfeited deposit will be considered a contribution to Deer Ridge Ministries. We do not want cost to prohibit a needed refreshment. Limited scholarships are available. If this is not clear, the chart on our online registration page should be helpful: You can view the chart and get more registration details at: https://drmretreats.org/getaway-registration.
Once guests have registered, a confirmation packet will be sent in the regular mail. The packet will include a confirmation letter, FAQ page, map, and Statement of Faith and Release page. We are asking guests to return the Statement of Faith page along with a $55 deposit to secure the reservation. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or call.
