Teaching, discussions, fun and challenging activities, balanced with prayer, fellowship, and quiet reflection are all facets of the ministry. “Come let us and the wonderful Ministry Team here at White Sulphur Springs bless and serve you in the love of Jesus Christ so that you are refreshed, renewed and ready to be a blessing to others when you leave this special place.”
