Southern California Family Retreat: K-WAVE

July 5 - July 10, 2020

K-WAVE 107.9FM is generously partnering with Joni and Friends to provide scholarships of $150 toward the registration cost for all short-term missionaries (STMs) serving at the Southern California Family Retreat in Murrieta for the first time.

We are excited that you are considering serving as an STM for the first time! STMs serve as a friend to a child or adult with a disability or the sibling of a child with a disability. In this role, your job is to be their friend for the week, giving the gift of your time and love. You will join your assigned camper for meals, program activities and free time activities such as swimming, games, crafts, fishing and sports. After an afternoon break, you will rejoin your camper and their family for evening activities, including the annual talent show. STMs do not provide personal or medical care.

The Murrieta Family Retreat will be July 5-10, 2020. STMs arrive one day before the families for training on disability etiquette, behavior response, a theology of suffering, etc. Ongoing support from experienced leaders is also available throughout the retreat. You do not need to be a professional to be a part of the team! Whether you are a college-aged student or a grandparent, you will serve a vital role at Family Retreat. Volunteers are simply committed Christians that have a desire to serve families affected by disability.

The Southern California Family Retreat is located at the Murrieta Hot Springs Christian Conference Center in Murrieta, CA. The beautiful campus features a swimming pool, Roman spa, natural hot springs, lake, volleyball, basketball, game room, Christian bookstore and coffee shop. The hotel-style accommodations feature private bathrooms, air conditioning, linens and towels. Family-style meals are served by the fabulous wait-staff in the dining room.
