Caraway campaign gift moves up cabin plans
    April 26 2011 by Caraway Conference Center

    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. Contact Jimmy Huffman at (336) 629-2374 or jhuffman@caraway.org.
