Mother/Daughter Retreat

April 26-28, 2019

As the daughter of a well-known Baptist pastor and godly mother, David and Mary Cummins, Miriam came to know the Lord as her Savior at a young age. Miriam met her husband, Marty Marriott, at Maranatha Baptist University where she majored in Secondary Education and minored in Speech.

After graduating from the college and teaching in a Christian school for two years, the Lord led the Marriotts to plant Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The Marriotts served at a few different churches over a period of about 30 years.  In 2009, Dr. Marriott was installed as President of Maranatha Baptist University where the couple now resides.

Miriam loves being in the ministry with her husband, and she is quite involved in teaching and mentoring women. Her monthly blog, “Girl Talk: A Moment With Mrs. M,” reflects the desire of her heart to share God’s goodness with ladies of all ages. She has also had a ministry in music and with children. Although she has enjoyed many areas of responsibility, her greatest passion is the private and public ministry of the Word of God to women.  Their three children and families are all serving the Lord.

Miriam’s life verse is 2 Corinthians 9:8: “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.”

There are a few new things coming to the retreat this year:

Big Hat Breakfast
When coming to the retreat this year, be sure to pack the biggest, coolest or silliest hat you own.  Get creative, because there will be awards for some of the best hats worn to breakfast on Sunday morning.  
Afternoon Tea
Saturday afternoon can get a bit hectic with all the activities we'll be offering.  Take a short break and continue the fun and fellowship as you enjoy some free time for afternoon tea.  We'll be serving up tea and some dainty treats for you to enjoy. 
Gun Range
Many have asked that we offer this particular activity for the Mother/Daughter Retreat.  The gun range will be open for all calibers of handguns and rifles.  You will need to bring your own firearms and ammunition.  All firearms will be checked in at the camp office upon arrival.  Of course, this activity is always heavily supervised by trained/qualified individuals.  More information will be sent to you regarding this activity when we confirm your reservation.
