MAIN SPEAKER: Kelly Warren
About Kelly Warren: Kelly has only known ministry all her life, and she wouldn't trade those years for anything. Her mom and dad, Mike and Terry Steere, ministered in northern Michigan for decades and she and her husband, Bill, have served in ministry all of their nearly 43 years of marriage. They met while attending school at Great Lakes Christian College in Lansing, Michigan. Immediately following graduation, they interned with TCM ministry near Vienna, Austria, and traveled extensively behind the Iron Curtain for 13 months.
In previous ministries she has been a choir director, piano teacher, done many forms of church administrative assistant work and served many years in drama and worship ministry.
They currently reside in Indianapolis, IN, where they work and travel for FAME, (fameworld.org) a mission that focuses on medical evangelism outside the USA. She loves her volunteer work at the FAME warehouse, but is thankful for the word “volunteer” in her job title, because this enables her to travel with Bill to many places in the states when he represents the ministry.
They have two grown sons, Derek, who lives with his wife, Nisha, in Washington, DC. They have two young sons, Bodhi (4) and Remy (2). Their youngest son, Brendan, is married to Lia, and they have Jack (9) and Lucas (7). Brendan and Lia's family live 5 minutes from them in Indy. Being grandparents is the absolute best!
When there’s spare time, Kelly loves spending time with her grandsons, reading about history (all the wars and Ancient Greece and Rome), playing the piano and singing, camping on Northern Lake Michigan, preparing for retreats like this, walking, board or card games, laughing with friends, travel and did she mention, grandsons?!
Kelly and Bill attend "The Creek" in Indianapolis where Bill serves as an elder. She loves being involved with MOPS as a mentor mom, hosting a life group in their home and being involved with other study groups.
The theme is "No Chariots!" based on Exodus 15:19; Joshua 11:4-6; Psalm 20:7.
Check-In is Friday between 4-5pm with dinner at 5:15pm.

RETREAT COORDINATORS: This annual retreat is sponsored by the Assembly of Christian Women, the women's auxiliary of the camp. They meet monthly March-October and help support the camp in MANY ways! Most recently the ACW used donated funds to remodel the camp lobby! Each year at the Ladies Retreat they sponsor a Silent Auction. We are in need of donated Gift Baskets for the “Silent Auction”. Gather with some friends or your church and donate a cleverly themed gift basket. Bring extra money to bid on the baskets! Money from the auction will go to the Assembly of Christian Women (ACW). The ACW will use this money for camp upgrades and needs.
