What is JMR Immersion?

JMR stands for Junior Mission Retreat. This retreat will immerse participants in a mock Work and Witness encounter where we will "board a plane" and "navigate customs," encounter foreign cultures, practices, languages and cuisine! Don't worry, your preteen will not leave the property--it will just "feel like" we do! This is planned and sponsored by KCD Children's Ministry and KCD Nazarene Missions International 

Who will serve as sponsors?

Each church is asked to send a sponsor to accompany students. For example, if you are bringing boys, send male sponsors. If you are brining girls, send female sponsor.  

Will students and sponsors sleep? 

Yes! We believe it is difficult for anyone of any age to benefit from forgoing an entire night of rest. While it won't be a 10 hour stretch, we do observe "lights out" and "quiet time" for about 7-8 full hours. 

What are the sleeping arrangements?

Girls and female sponsors in one space. 

Boys and male sponsors in another space. 

The floor is our foundations so plan bedrolls wisely. 

In addition to bedroll, what should I bring?

  • 1 roll of nickels 
  • 2 cans of veggies
  • shoes
  • jacket
  • tooth brush and other items to help you feel and smell fresh
  • comfy clothes for sleeping
  • change of clothes for morning
  • a friend

What should I leave at home? 

  • all electronics
  • all additional money (beside roll of nickels) 
  • shower supplies (no shower available) 
  • anything you would be afraid to misplace or leave behind 

Who should I contact with additional questions?
