WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT TGR
“The Grove Retreat introduced me to so many new people who share the same values as I do who have remained as some of my closest friends since last summer! Additionally, the Grove Retreat also introduced me to what would be my church home and student ministry program, helping me grow closer to the Lord early on in my college experience."
- West Sepko
“The Grove Retreat set the tone for Ole Miss and helped me find a community of people. I am so thankful for being able to hear from all the speakers and churches and thankful because it helped me get involved right away and helped me find a church home.”
