Being a Pastor/Missionary kid presents its own benefits and challenges. This is a weekend that is designed to help your students realize they are not alone and that God has called and gifted them for this role in this season. We’ll spoil them, celebrate them, and create a space for them to encounter God in a life-changing way!

(and it’s free to Northwest Ministry Network minister’s families!)


Lake Retreat Camp

Ravensdale, WA


Grades 6-12 Only


FREE | Our desire is that this event would be a blessing, not a burden, to your family! Send your student for an epic weekend on us!
