Who Are We?
In the late 1980s there were three brethren from the Amish Mennonite community that had a vision for a retreat setting where God’s people could come together for a weekend of encouragement and fellowship with others that faced similar issues in life. From that humble beginning, Penn Valley Christian Retreat grew to what it is today.
There are various seminar weekends including Marriage Enrichment, Christians in Business, Mentally Handicapped, Golden Age, Physically Challenged, Christians in Healthcare and many others.
There are approximately twenty-five seminar weekends throughout the year. The remainder of the time Penn Valley hosts banquets, reunions, and church groups.
Penn Valley Christian Retreat is owned and operated by the Anabaptist group known as the Beachy Amish Mennonites. The board consists of seven members plus three ministerial advisers taken from the above group.
We support our Creator’s design in clear gender identity. Therefore we ask that men wear shirts and long pants and that ladies wear modest dresses.
Since we believe that our bodies are to be the temple of the Holy Spirit, we ask that no alcohol or tobacco be used on the premises.
Our Mission Statement
Our purpose is the furtherance of Christ’s kingdom in a retreat setting where specific needs are ministered to through Bible teaching, discipleship, and encouragement.
