What is the Joy in the Journey Retreat?

When the idea for the Joy in the Journey ministry was birthed, it began with a spark of an idea that a retreat could take place in the heart of the country, right in Southwest Missouri.  The idea quickly spun into the Joy in the Journey ministry and has taken on a life of it's own, including not only the retreat, but the blog and social media connections as well.  The various means of connection have served as an amazing blessing to the Joy in the Journey team, allowing us to encourage adoptive families, advocate for adoption, foster connections, minister to hurting hearts, advertise adoption fundraisers, and feature amazing companies through giveaways.

When it comes right down to it, though, the Joy in the Journey Retreat is the one weekend that is the very heart of the ministry.  Following are some frequently asked questions regarding the Joy in the Journey Retreat...

Who should attend the Retreat?

Any adoptive, foster, or prospective adoptive/foster mom

What can I expect from attending the Joy in the Journey Retreat?

You can expect a weekend full of encouragement and connection with other adoptive and foster mamas where you will be poured into and taken care of.  The weekend will include main sessions, breakout sessions, worship times, meals, connection times, and some recreation time.

When is the Retreat?

This year's retreat will be March 27-29, 2015.  We have extended the retreat one night/day to foster additional time for sessions and connections.

Where is the Retreat?

The retreat will take place at Maranatha Bible Camp/Retreat Center in Everton, MO.

How much is the Retreat?

This year's retreat will cost $100.  This includes 2 nights' lodging, 5 meals (dinner, breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch), snacks, all the coffee you can drink, and an AWESOME swag bag.

How do I register for the 2015 Joy in the Journey Retreat?

This is the tricky part.  Registration for the retreat will go live on October 24th, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. CST.  If you are planning to attend the retreat, you will definitely want to be prepared to register by purchasing your ticket at that time.  Slots are limited based on space at the retreat center and will go quickly.  Last year's retreat was full within 7 days of going live and we anticipate this year's to fill up even faster.

How do I know this retreat will be worth the trip/registration fee?

Honestly, the best way to answer this question is to have you click here and see for yourself...
