Above Rubies Family Conference
August 24-26, 2018
Pine Valley Bible Conference Center
Our family has been incredibly blessed to be able to host an Above Rubies Family Conference every year since 1997. Our children have grown up participating in the retreat each year and start asking about January how long until we go to Pine Valley again. We have ventured north to coordinate conferences in Northern California & Washington as well.
Pine Valley Bible Conference Center has welcomed us with open arms and been accommodating to our families. Surrounded by the Cleveland National Forest, two miles north of Interstate 8 and 45 minutes east of San Diego, the camp rests at the foot of Laguna Mountain. Fruit & cookies await in the meeting room for a Friday night snack after dinner that includes a salad bar and dessert. Families can enjoy a range of recreational activities such as a swimming pool with water slide, a zip line, tennis courts, basketball courts, archery, game room, playground, and a real cool tire swing. Squirrels are in the trees, an occasional raccoon can be spotted, wild turkeys, peacocks, a hike to a cross on the hill and a peaceful feeling that surpasses all understanding. The kind you get when you know you are somewhere where people are praying for their guests. For those that want to extend the weekend into a family vacation, San Diego and other Southern California attractions and are only a short distance away. Sea World, the San Diego Zoo & Wild Animal Park, and Legoland are all within an hour of the camp.

Sessions for the husbands and wives are timed to allow the parents to coordinate their own family’s care rather than having outside child care. This gives each parent a special time with their children to explore the conference grounds and activities. There will also be combined activities for the entire family as well as plenty of free time to be together or share time with other families. Some of the weekend topics include:
*Fulfilling our roles as parents in raising our children to know and serve Jesus wholeheartedly.
*Building Godly generations that can stand firm for God in an uncertain world.
*Equipping Fathers to lead and Mothers to follow and the whole family to work together as a team.
*Providing our families with physical and spiritual nourishment.
*Living abundantly and continuing to serve one another when faced with the challenges of life unique to families.
