2024 Pastors Wives Getaway

We are thrilled to announce that Marlene Carr of To Be Restored Ministries (pictured right) has agreed to be our key-note speaker for 2024. You will begin to hear more about Marlene in coming months. However, let us tell you that Marlene currently resides in Clinton, MD with Kenneth Sr. the love of her life, and her most enjoyable and precious times are spent with their 6 adult children, one daughter-in-love, and 6 grandchildren. 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 17 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.

Please join us for an amazing time of refreshment at the 2024 Deer Ridge Wives Getaway (Theme TBD) as we fellowship and soak in God’s Word. As women serving in ministry, we are keenly aware how often we race ahead and to not take time for ourselves to pause and rest. This is your opportunity to escape the rigors of your schedule and be with other women in ministry, to pause, to listen, to redirect if necessary. Come find a place of fellowship and friendship with others. We will enjoy a great time of teaching, prayer, joyful worship, and connecting with like minded women. As we did at the 2023 pastor wives getaway, we will continue focusing on more small group time to provide an opportunity for heart-level connection. Workshops on relevant topics as well as meal time conversation will encourage your soul!
