Individuals with disabilities are one of the most forgotten people groups in our communities today, and the day-to-day realities of caring for a family member with mental and/or physical challenges can be isolating, overwhelming, and exhausting.  Joni and Friends Family Retreats addresses the needs of families who live with these daily struggles. It is five days of inspirational worship, biblical teaching, recreation, and precious time for families. Parents and children leave with a refreshment, new-found hope, stronger family and marital relationships, and a new or stronger faith.

Faith Covenant is looking for a team of people to serve as Short Term Missionaries at Family Retreat this August. STMs serve as a one-to-one friend to a camper with a disability, joining them for meals, programming, recreation, and special events. STMs do not serve as Personal Care Attendants and are not responsible for any personal cares such as toileting, dressing, medication, etc. Their purpose is simple, to be the hands and feet of Jesus!  All training is provided at camp; no previous experience is required, just a willing heart!  The 2021 Family Retreat will be at Castaway Club Young Life Camp in Detroit Lakes, MN. From August 16-21. Register at 2021 Minnesota Family Retreat Link
