About the Event
God’s Word speaks volumes to the relationship between fathers and daughters: His most sacred duty is her protection and preservation from childhood to virtuous womanhood. He leads her, woos her, and wins her with a tenderness and affection unique to the bonds of father and daughter. Success in his life mission is directly related to the seriousness and compassion with which he seeks to raise her as an industrious, family-affirming, children-loving woman of God.
She, in turn, looks to her father as a loving picture of leadership, of devotion, and of care. Her relationship with her father will help to define her view of the worth of a woman, the meaning of fulfillment and contentment, and her vision for virtue. When these relationships are realized and cultivated, the generational mission of the Christian family is secure.
Is it any wonder that Satan is on the prowl seeking to tear the hearts of daughters from their fathers, and driving wedges of indifference between them — fathers with no time for their little girls, and young ladies who have replaced the love of their fathers with the acceptance of peers and inappropriate romantic relationships? The 2006 Vision Forum Ministries Father & Daughter Retreat is one step on the journey of recovering the preciousness of this relationship so crucial to the kingdom-building work of the Church.

Comments from Event
What a wonderful experience for my daughters and I. The setting and the hospitality were perfect. I was impressed by the ability of the staff at Callaway to serve such a large group in such special way. The messages were inspiring, convicting and encouraging, and our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will apply the truth of His word to the hearts of each of the men and their daughters who attended. Thank you for all of your hard work in making the weekend possible. —Jim V.
A tool in the hand of Almighty God... this indeed describes last weekend’s Father and Daughter Retreat. Through the speakers I was encouraged not just to submit, but to delight in my father’s God-given vision. What a blessing to be the daughter of a man with purpose and goals for my life! —Elizabeth S.
