Mother & Daughter Retreat

Check out the video from last year’s Mother Daughter Retreat!


In our fast-paced society, sometimes we get so busy that we miss the true meaning of the important things in life. We get caught up in focusing our eyes on things like groceries, sports, laundry, meetings, work, assignments, and school projects. Although these may seem like the most immediate concerns, the truth is that many of the daily tasks that we pursue are earthly and temporary. The 2017 Jenness Park Mother Daughter Retreat is designed for ladies and girls from age 5 and older to focus on the aspects of life that are eternal, the things that amount to “More than Meets the Eye.” We’re focusing on 2 Corinthians 4:18, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” With our perspectives focusing on eternity, we begin to see that our character and our relationships are far more enduring than the tasks and possessions that distract us in our daily routines.

Theme Verse – 2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”


  • Speaker/Worship Leader: Jana Alayra
  • Galloping Grunge Run: Yes, you will get grubby!
  • Masquerade Party: Saturday night – Bring a mask or costume that fits your style!
  • Speaking and Worship – JANA ALAYRA

    Jana Alayra is an artist with whom many can identify. She is a wife, mother, and friend, busy with the daily routine of tending to the lives of her three daughters and producer husband, Ron. Together, Ron and Jana also answer the call to a unique ministry of leading worship, both to adults and children. Whether leading a small group with her guitar, or singing for a thousand children and their families, Jana’s enthusiasm and love for Christ are evident, sincere and inspiring. When people leave one of Jana’s concerts or testimonials, they often say that not only were they entertained and encouraged, but they felt they made a new friend. Jana shares openly about the pain and sorrows in her life, as well as Christ’s victory through it all. Her humor and hope are truly encouraging. Hers is a unique ministry of sorrow, celebration, and faith. To know her story and to watch her lead people in praise is a true testimony of God’s power and faithfulness.

    Galloping Grunge Run

    If you are already registered, we can’t wait to see you. We are super excited about our new Saturday event: “Galloping Grunge Run.” Bring clothes that will endure the rigors of the Jenness Park Obstacle Run trail. Even if you don’t wish to participate in the run itself, wear a crazy costume and support the participants. Also remember to bring a Bible, flashlight, towels, toiletries, and comfortable camp clothing.
    If you are not registered yet, NOW is the best time! Come to Jenness Park for a wonderful time with your mom, daughter, or sister in the Lord. The adventure awaits!

    The Mother Daughter Galloping Grunge Run will be similar to the Father Son Run with slight modifications.
