TOPIC & SPEAKER
We are still working on the topic, but trust that it will be rich in the gospel and rooted in bible study.
DRC is very excited to have Marlean Felix lead us in the study of scripture at this year’s Women’s Summit. Marlean was the speaker at our 2016 Women's Summit, and we're so grateful to have her with us again! Marlean's primary ministry is supporting her husband, Paul (Senior Pastor at Fairview Heights Baptist Church) and their two adult children, Wes and Allyson. With a teaching credential from CSULA and a Bible Diploma from Los Angeles Bible Training School, Marlean also has vast experience sharing and expounding the gospel. She is currently a Master’s Seminary Wives Discipleship Speaker, Vacation Bible School Teacher, Women’s Bible Study Facilitator, Women’s Retreat and Conference Speaker, and Los Angeles Bible Training School Women’s Ministries’ Instructor. Marlean was raised by committed Christian parents and counts her father, a preacher, as the means by which God led her to Himself.
Forest Home Christian Camp is located in Forest Falls, which is about an hour and 45 minute drive from LAX (but can take longer with traffic). Forest Home exists for people to: Encounter Jesus. Experience Transformation. Engage the World.
We will be staying at Forest Center, which is centrally located at Forest Home Christian Camp. Our cabins are suite-style, with two bunks per room and a bathroom for every two rooms.
Forest Home offers activities and amenities such as a zipline, giant swing, sky trail (high ropes course), coffee shop, clubhouse snack shop, the game room, hiking, basketball, volleyball, and plenty of other options.
- a sleeping bag or bed sheets for a twin bed (if you don’t have twin-sized bed sheets, you can bring larger sheets and fold them over to fit!)
- shower towel
- your bible
- pen or pencil
- weather-appropriate clothes
- money for snacks and extra
- earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones are helpful if you have trouble sleeping with noise (e.g., snoring)
Please also come with an open heart and mind, prepared to worship the Lord, be edified by His word, and enjoy a fun weekend with the women of DRC!
SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS A SUMMIT? It’s time together to learn about God, study His word and be as a community of women together in the mountains. We are advancing and growing as a community of women – being discipled to fulfill the Great Commission -- and hence “summit” is more apt than “retreat.”
