November is Autumn's birthday month and her birthday wish is to be able to raise funds so that we can offer scholarships to those who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend retreats as well as assistance with counseling services for those who have attended past retreats as this is an ongoing need after a retreat. If you prefer, there's also a newly added option for staff support.
What Your Gifts Support:
Retreat Scholarships: We are passionate about making our retreats possible for those who may not be able to afford to attend. $275 covers the cost for 1 woman to attend a retreat. You can sponsor someone to attend a retreat or you can sponsor a specific portion of that cost. Those costs include: $150 covers their lodging. $50 covers delicious and nutricious meals. $40 covers their gift bag full of goodies. $25 covers journal and pen. $10 covers drinks and snacks. Or you can make a donation of any amount - every amount helps make these retreats possible.
Counseling Scholarships: Counseling is a huge need for continuing the transformation that happens at these retreats. It is our heart to be able to offer scholarships for counseling to past retreat attendees. Many are paying $100 or more for each counseling session (some attending more than once a month) and we'd love to be able to offer some assistance toward this. Our goal is to be able to offer scholarships that RNR would pay directly to the counselors to cover $50 a month for 6 months to those who have attended retreats and need that assistance. If you would like to give a one-time gift of $50 to help with one month or become a monthly donor to cover this need monthly, please put "counseling" in the notes as you set up your payment. To set up a recurring monthly gift, click "Donate" and then choose "Monthly" instead of "One-Time".
New Option - Staff Support: We don't currently have any paid staff. Autumn is a volunteer but sometimes individuals give to staff support and that alows RNR to bless Autumn with a financial gift. If you would like to give toward Autumn's support - you can do so here. Choose "staff support" from the fund menu.
If you would like to help us fundraise, we have enabled crowd funding - you can share and track how much you have helped us raise by creating your own fundraising page. Click the Fundraise button above next to "Team Members" to set up your own free fundraising page. We would love your assistance in spreading the word!!! Thank you!!!
Restoration Nation Retreat was founded in 2020 by Autumn Kerr. Autumn spent 10 years working for a nonprofit organization that facilitated international mission trips. During her time with the organization, she had the privilege of planning and executing retreats for missionaries serving overseas. This is where her heart for retreats began. Autumn received emails from the missionaries who attended those retreats and heard story after story of hearts impacted and lives changed as a result of a 2-4 night retreat. Autumn attended many retreats with her church over the years and experienced herself how impactful these times away are. There's something special about getting away from our busy day to day lives and coming to a quiet place with the intention of hearing from the Lord. He always shows up!
Autumn has a passion for pouring into others through Christ-centered retreats and that passion grows even stronger with each retreat. Since launching in 2020, RNR has offered 4 retreats for women serving a total of 51 women. Autumn's vision for the future of Restoration Nation Retreat is to have a retreat center to offer year-round retreats. In the meantime, RNR has been blessed to partner with other retreat locations to host our retreats. Seeing individuals carve out time away to hear from the Lord and watching their hearts transformed is so powerful and so impactful. With each retreat, we fall more and more in love with this vision and our dream is to see thousands of people healed and restored through retreats.
To see people healed and whole in Jesus.
This mission of Restoration Nation Retreat is to refresh, nourish and restore those in need of healing through Christ-centered retreats, counseling, and other services.
