We are praying for everyone impacted by COVID-19.

Join Joni and Friends Tennessee as we host a Warrior Getaway at the peaceful setting of the Retreat at Center Hill Lake. This 5-day getaway is specifically designed for servicemen and women who have visible and invisible wounds as a result of war. This getaway will also serve the spouse, children, and/ or parents of the warrior. We will provide accessible family activities, encouraging speakers, opportunities to connect with other warriors, and time in God’s Word.
