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

Caraway.

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

undertaking.
