These events are hosted by Purley Gates Retreat, and built for the community. We want to be servants and a welcoming environment. Here are the events that we offer:


This marriage retreat will be the first of our "Spring Retreat Series." With plans to offer more events in the coming years, we wanted to begin with an event that would be most beneficial to our community. This marriage retreat will have an emphasis on living together, teaching couples how to work as a team and power through some big decisions that we face. Led by Pastor Trent Young and his wife Dana Young, couples will come out with a game plan and in better position to defeat today's societal norms.

The event will be held on March 24-25, 2017. Tickets are $45.00 per couple, with a limit of 18 couples. Our guests will be staying in the GAB Hall Lodge. Call or email to reserve your spot, or check buy your tickets on-line: www.eventbrite.com/e/doing-life-together-marriage-retreat-tickets.


We will be hosting the 1st annual Joe Brunson Memorial Dinner on October 28, 2016. This event provides members an amazing opportunity for fellowship and to be part of the mission at Purley Gates Retreat. It also gives our guests a chance to see all that we offer at camp, and have a glimpse at how we operate. The event includes a very nice meal put together by our amazing cooks, and entertainment given by David Crain, a Christian musician and speaker.


Tours of the campus will begin at 5:30, and dinner will be served at 6:00. Tickets are $25 per plate. Come by Team Worldwide to pick up your ticket, or go to www.eventbrite.com for tickets. Call 903-342-3516 and talk with either LaWanda or Melissa for more information.


Childcare will also be provided. Kid's Passes are $10 (flat rate) and are for K-6th only. The kids will enjoy pizza, a movie, and other activities in our Rec Room.

For the fall of 2017, PGR will be hosting it's first Pastor's Conference. This event will give pastors and youth pastors a chance to relax, refresh, and return to their congregations with a new passion for Jesus Christ. More information will be provided.


As mentioned above, we are working on a "Spring Retreat Series." The marriage retreats will continue, and we will be adding in other retreats that cater to the needs of our community. If you have a suggestion of how we can best serve, we would love to hear your thoughts!
