Each meal will have gluten-free and dairy-free options available. If you need other food accommodations, please plan to bring food that works for your dietary needs.

What kind of clothes should we bring?

June in Texas is unpredictable! It may be hot; it may be storming. Please check the forecast for Wills Point, TX, in the days preceding the retreat. Clothes should be casual, comfortable and modest.

Is there internet connection?

We encourage everyone to take the opportunity to unplug from the world, including phones and other electronics, to really hear from the Lord during these seven days. That being said, internet is available at all the public buildings on campus.
