Camp Jabez Retreat Center:
We are a family owned and operated ministry. We began out of much prayer in 2001 when we felt God leading us as a family to leave good jobs, sell our homes and step out in faith. Pat and her girls Jenny and Rachel along with their husbands and families live on the property and are actively involved in the daily operations of the camp. The entire family is active in our local church and enjoys the privilege of ministry there as well.
Pat or “G” is Director of Food Services and Reservations. She is first person from Camp Jabez that most people come in contact with. She is the voice on the other end of the phone and the heart of emails that are sent. She is the proud grandmother of 6 grandchildren all of which live on the camp property. G is responsible for our kitchen, and you won’t go hungry when she is around! email Pat
