We are looking for moms and/or daughters who desire to be baptized at our retreat.

UP Women Ministres Retreat
September 16-18, 2016 at Camp Sagola
Jane Harris currently ministers as the Women’s Ministry Director for the Michigan Conference. She organizes many seminars for women, moms, and daughters and loves to connect with people. Jane believes outreach is for everyone and that there are many methods of evangelism and which can come in many different sizes and shapes. But the one method Jane loves the best is Friendship Evangelism, because this method has as many different forms as there are people. (Ministry of Healing, pg. 143.)
Janie is married to Craig Harris and together they have two grown married daughters, as well as one grandson Owen and grandaughter Morgan. God has given Jane the gift of organization, decorating, and hospitality. It is not unusual to see Jane planning events at home and for the conference office. Jane has always loved studying the Bible and has given many Bible studies. Her hobbies are bargain shopping, decorating, restoring and repurposing old items, staying active, laughing, and spending time with her family.
Kasey McFarland grew up near Drummond Island in a non-Christian home. She was introduced to Jesus at the age of 19 during a tragedy that happened in the family of the boy she was dating (and later married!). She is currently a member of the Lansing Seventh-day Adventist church and works in the Women’s Ministries and Lifestyle Matters at Work departments at the Michigan Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
Kasey enjoys spending time with her husband Bill, son’s Jake and Kaleb, and her family and friends. She truly loves serving Jesus in ministry. She is a busy wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt and great-aunt. Kasey also loves being active and creative, studying God’s Word, reading, writing, speaking and teaching and all aspects of ministry. Just don’t ask her to sing or play an instrument.
