My name is Janice Barnes, I am the Executive Director for the Inland Empire chapter in California. I attended my Deeper Still retreat in the Fall of 2016. I had attended abortion wounded Bible Studies and even facilitated some of them. But God led me to a deeper healing than I had experienced before. This healing changed me in more ways than I could have ever imagined. After the retreat, I wanted to volunteer and serve in any way I could.
In 2019, after serving at several retreats, I was asked to pray about and begin a chapter in the Inland Empire (we are located about an hour east of Los Angeles). God opened up so many doors for this chapter to be established. We held our first retreat in the Fall of 2020.
As a Chapter Leader, God has surrounded me with a great team of women and men who have a deep compassion for the abortion wounded. It is such an honor to witness God touching and healing those that He brings to the retreats. My daughter and son in law witnessed the healing I received after my retreat. Although they are not abortion wounded, they both have a heart to serve at the retreats.
I have lived most of my life in the Inland Empire. I have a grown son & daughter, along with a daughter in love, and a son in love. I have 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
The Inland Empire chapter is located in Southern California near San Bernardino City. We hold our retreats in the nearby mountains.
You will be welcomed by a team of well trained members to beautiful cabins of a Christian retreat Center near Lake Arrowhead. Your time with us will be safe, loving and completely confidential for a time to focus on God and His healing hands.
All retreats are free of charge, which includes lodging and food for the weekend.
