Don and Mary Ann Warren have made the first major pledge to
the “New Beginnings” Capital Campaign of Caraway Conference and Camp.
The Warrens, members of Parkwood Baptist Church in Gastonia,
have chosen to honor their parents, Bulford and Madie Powell and Curtis and
Grace Warren through a gift to construct a retreat cabin for ministers at
The Powell/Warren Mountain House will be available to
ministers to use as a place of rest, prayer and study at no charge.
The house will sit on the west side of Long Arm Ridge with
views of the Uwharrie Mountains. Construction will begin in August and will
hopefully be available for use in the fall of 2011. Huffman estimates
completion by mid-October.
“They are a couple that truly strives to honor God,” said
Jimmy Huffman, director of Caraway.
Warren, who has served on various convention boards and
committees including current board member of the Biblical Recorder, serves as
the chairman of the New Beginnings Campaign Committee.
“Don has not only shown his commitment to the vision at
Caraway through his leadership, but now has made a personal investment in
Caraway, as well as in the lives of ministers in North Carolina,” said Huffman.
The minister’s retreat was part of Phase III of the
campaign, however due to the Warrens’ gift it will be moved to Phase I.
The New Beginnings Campaign is a three-year, $7.5-million
