The Juniper Tree Retreat management is honored in what is being said about this project. Please read the testimonials below and see why we want to provide these facilities for those that serve us.
“I know that when this wonderful vision is available to all Pastors, Chaplains, and ministry workers it will be of great benefit to them. It will be very helpful in seeking direction or answers in their calling, to have a place to hear… that still small voice. Sometimes we get so busy and involved in our ministry, that we just need a place to rest from our previous work… or to prepare for our next journey of serving God.”
“When we first heard about the Juniper Tree Retreat we were excited and have been waiting for it to be made available. There has been for years and even more so lately, such a need for this type of “get a way” for our personnel to use and replenish …or just to have a day of rest from the dedicated struggles of their service. I believe this will also benefit a firefighter’s family in many ways… I guess maybe the wait was worth it.”
Senior Center Director-
“I have thought of so many opportunities for our seniors since I first heard about the Juniper Tree. Special meetings and events, an occasional ice cream freeze in the country setting, Staff training sessions and seniors meeting other seniors from other cities… so many opportunities and befits for our seniors at the Serenity Gathering Center, as well as needed benefits for our staff and workers.”
“Such a wonderful idea for the businesses and citizens of Northwest Arkansas to help make this Retreat available to the first responders… and others that serves. Is it needed… oh yes very much! The stress levels, the circumstances, the things that our EMS personnel experience can sometimes be overbearing, and a Juniper Tree time out would be very beneficial.”
Veteran Activities Director-
“It would be impossible to share at one time, all of the many programs, opportunities and benefits that this Retreat and gathering center would mean to our military and veterans. Training programs, confidence building seminars, and welcome home or even going away events are just a few. One idea shared with us, is a day meeting of veterans from different cities going to the Juniper Tree just to meet, sit and visit with other veterans that they might never have met without this program. Thank you Juniper Tree developers and donors, you are so kind.”
“To be with, to take care of, to be a part of someone’s life and then to lose them… is very hard on any caregiver. To have a place such as the Serenity Center to have recovery session meetings or to have training days for caregivers is also tremendously needed. In addition, spending a day or two in the cabins at the Juniper Tree, refocusing and finding peace …would be such a blessing to caregivers.”
Law Enforcement Captain-
“Needed – yes… will it be used- yes… will it be appreciated, absolutely. All Law enforcement management and personnel could benefit from the Juniper Tree. We all need guidelines, training, supervision and backups to do our job…but occasionally we also need to have a place with no sirens, no emergencies or problems and be able to just rest and relax without worrying about what is happening around us or around the next curve. A day or two at the Juniper Tree…as I said… would be greatly appreciated.”
Retired Military/Veteran and Police Chaplain-
“To know that the citizens and businesses would think enough about us to donate and make this available is humbling. In a world filled with so many negative actions against those that serve, it is so refreshing to be appreciated.”
