Family Retreat

A big part of my life is doing disability ministry. Here is a little about Family Retreat.

You can see a video about Family Retreat where I have served with many Grace Church friends as well.

This is another great video from lives touched by Family Retreat. You’ll also see a number of Grace Church folks as well.

Join Joni and Friends and their dedicated country partner Press On, and share the transforming power of the gospel to families affected by disability in Peru. The retreat will be held at the Escuela de Sobrevivencia en el Mar de la FAP (ESMAR) in Ancón, Peru, a seaside resort where persons with disabilities can enjoy Peru’s first accessible beach made accessible by Joni and Friends Total Access.

This is Peru’s second Family Retreat . Aside from providing families respite care in a fun-filled and Christ-focused environment, the retreat also offers an opportunity for the local churches and their volunteers to receive training from experienced U.S. Family Retreat leaders. We need you, our FR veterans to help equip and train our friends in Peru so they can lead at future family retreats. Be there to purposefully support and encourage them, so they too can carry on the movement towards a disability-friendly community, as exemplified at a Joni and Friends Family Retreat. We need you to “export your expertise” in family recreation, adult, youth and children’s programs, as well as STM training.

Join us live out Philippians 3:24 as we encourage families and equip volunteers so that this “foretaste of heaven” can become a reality not just at the retreat, but going beyond -in their day-to-day lives.
