PUTTING GOD FIRST CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES, INC.

God has presented us with a mission.
Our mission is to prepare Christians for today's challenges.
Christian's are being attacked, within their marriages, their family, their jobs, and community.
We will be there to listen to what they have to say, with Biblical Counselors standing by.
Spiritual needs must be met to keep a family together.

As a Christian Organization we are committed in helping as we are equipped.

God's retreat is not just for children, it's for families, churches, couples, and pastors.
God's retreat is a meeting place for all who seek Jesus Christ.
God's retreat is a safe zone, a place to seek only the truth, according to Scripture.

Great place for your next church outing, youth group, or just come as a family.

Help at risk and city kids learn the value of growing their own food,
and the pride that comes from a job well done.
Not only do we want to help change children's lives through spiritual growth, but we want to teach them
how to appreciate and preserve the land and the beautiful surroundings God has provided for us to enjoy,
that includes; trails, river, and various kinds of wildlife. There are wild turkey, deer, beaver, many
species of birds, and some we have not identified as yet.
Special Projects offered during the spring and summer months
Because of extensive reconstruction throughout the retreat grounds, we
will be temporarily closed. Grand Re-opening coming this spring 2015...
Romans 12:4-8
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ
we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace
given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is
teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it
diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Our Board of Directors have voted to build bunkhouses that will have a double purpose.
HOUSING YOUTH GROUPS...
TEMPORARY EMERGENCY HOUSING FOR INDIVIDUALS IN
  DISASTROUS SITUATIONS...
This is our community, and at times we are our brothers keeper. Help us, help others... As a united group of Christians we are expected to be there for one another in times of
need, whether it is a spiritual need or physical need.
God's Beauty
Displayed everywhere you look...
This project is to teach children how to grow their own fruits and vegetables, how to care for them and during the
growing season takes home the fruits of their labors. This gives children the opportunity to get the satisfaction of
taking home what they have grown.
Fun has no age...
