Rev. Huffman grew up mostly in Oklahoma and Texas, and has served as a pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA) since 1983 in churches in California, Louisiana, San Antonio, TX and, most recently, at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston. She currently has two ½ time jobs, one as an Associate Director for Frontier Fellowship, a mission agency that seeks to bring the gospel to unreached people on the frontier. She also teaches for Fuller as an Affiliate Professor in Practical Theology, classes online and face-to-face at Fuller TX.

Cost Lodging, meals and retreat expenses are combined together in one price. Five meals will be included beginning with dinner Friday evening through breakfast Sunday morning.

Double Occupancy Room Rate - $235 per person.
Single Occupancy Room Rate - $300.
"What to bring" and further information will be sent via email two weeks prior to the retreat.


Also Saturday evening:
Godspell at 8:00 p.m. | Saturday, March 23, 2019
at the Owen Theatre

We have the opportunity to attend a performance of Godspell Saturday evening.  
Group rate tickets are $18 per person.  We hope you will enjoy this optional activity
(minimum purchase of 15 tickets needed for the group rate).

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
