Olive Grove Family Adventure 2021

Welcome to registration for the third annual Olive Grove Family Adventure (OGFA)! Due to the Covid Pandemic many are unable to travel and we are, sadly, unable to offer our regular 2 week Olive Grove kid's adventure. BUT, we are VERY excited to invite you to this year's Olive Grove Family Adventure. This retreat will offer families a chance to experience an OG-like adventure; with Word Studies for both parents and children, exciting electives, worship times, and other opportunities for family fun. There will also be plenty of free time for games, swimming, hiking, and exploring the beautiful nature of Çıralı. We hope you will be able to join us June 14-18, 2021 starting at 2pm.

We are excited to announce Jackson Crum as our guest speaker for parent's Word studies and some of our evening studies. Pastor Jackson served as the lead pastor of Park Community Church in Chicago for many years before moving to Turkey to serve those serving abroad. He and his wife, Donna, have been married for 40 years and have 2 married sons and 6 grandchildren! Whether it is about ministry life, relationships, parenting , or a myriad of other topics, Jackson and Donna have a wealth of wisdom to share with us and we are excited to have them join us!

Another exciting addition to our OG team this year is Amber Goodloe. Amber works with the phenomenal team at Olive Tree Counseling Center located in Antalya. She and the team there bless and minister to many families from all of over Europe and Asia. After spending 8 years as a youth leader for TCKs in China, Amber decided to pursue a counseling degree as a way to serve families living overseas. Since then, she has spent the last 8 years working as a professional counselor to adolescents, families, and adults in Colorado and no in Antalya. We are excited to have her with us to share during some optional afternoon seminars. She is also going to be available for families, adults, or youths to set up individual counseling sessions during free time hours. If you are interested in setting up a time with her please check the appropriate box below in the registration form. There is no extra charge.
