Come be a part of the 2014 Ministers' Wives Retreat. This retreat, at beautiful Jenness Park in the Sierra Nevada mountains, is a highlight weekend for ministers' wives from throughout California. Women come to seek friendships with other ministers' wives, find support through prayer partners, share ideas for ministry and be pampered by the Jenness Park staff. You will leave encouraged and ready for the joys and challenges of ministry. Whether you come with a group or not knowing anyone, be assured that you will be welcomed and encouraged.

The retreat is open to any woman whose husband is in vocational ministry (senior pastor or pastoral staff; full-time, part-time or retired).

Rodolfo Martinez 

POMONA, California - Grandfather of seven, Rodolfo Martinez likes to fish, swim, walk, and start churches. Throughout his ministry, he has always considered himself a missionary.

"The Lord has given me an apostolic gift to go and start new churches," said Rodolfo. "Since I was a pastor in my early twenties, I have always started new congregations. At my first church, we had five missions. Every place I was a pastor I started at least one new congregation." Raised in a Christian home in Mexico, Rodolfo surrendered his life to the Lord at a youth retreat. After receiving a bachelor of arts degree in theology from the Mexican Baptist Theological Seminary, he earned a bachelor of science in psychology from California Baptist University, Riverside, and a master of art's degree in religious education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas.

Over the next 14 years, Rodolfo served as pastor of three California churches. "My years as a pastor in California," he said, "prepared me to continue doing mission work in this beautiful state. In 1994, my wife, Noemi, and I were commissioned by the Home Mission Board (i.e., North American Mission Board) and the California Southern Baptist Convention to do mission work in the greater Los Angeles area."
