In Tents is a 10 day discipleship program for young women, 16 and above. It is held in Grand Rapids, Michigan from June 15-24, 2018. It was started by Ann Bjorlie in 2010, and is currently hosted by Ann and organized by Bernadette Veenstra.
We are looking for women 16 years and older, who love the Lord and want to serve Him. Our passion is “older women teaching younger women.” We expose the young women to women who serve God as mothers with toddlers in the home, with teenagers at home, as empty nesters, as retired missionaries, and as young unmarried women. They all love God and have found ways to serve the Lord from their homes. Everything we teach, we then “do.” The young ladies get hands on training in things like: studying their Bible, hospitality, hosting a large evangelistic event, teaching children, visiting the elderly, inviting the neighborhood to church events, serving food to a crowd, being a help to young moms, and learning from one another as we “do” what God intended.
Many young women have been through the program, and we are praying for the ones who will attend this year. Discipleship (and In Tents) involves sacrifice and commitment. We will only accept young women, ages 16 and older, who are committed to attending the entire 10 day program. This commitment and sacrifice is costly, but rewarding. No one leaves In Tents unchanged. Skills will be learned, life long friendships will be made.
