Welcome with Loving Arms
My family loves Shepherd''s Pasture. We stayed for a week last summer for V.B.S (my kids called it "Church Camp" we are going again for a week in July. Mrs.Romey & Dwayne welcome you with loving arms. My children adore both of them.

Beautiful Setting and Great People
Couldn't ask for a better weekend getaway location! Thank you Romey and Dwayne and the crew for a fabulous EAGALA ALOT Networking Retreat!
There is always something taking place
This place is sooo amazing... Romey and her husband are just amazing. Shepherd's pasture is a great place to go relax and find yourself. The work they do for veterans is over the top. They also help with anything we might need. There is always something taking place. I love visiting for the weekend for certain retreats or for walking around the property. You have got to check this place out!
Great time with the family. Great environment to relax and focus on what's important.
Absolutely Loved the Facilities
We just spent a week at Shepherd's Pasture Retreat Center. Absolutely loved the facilities that were offered to us for Church Camp/VBS. The owners and staff are wonderful Christian people. We will definitely be back, hopefully sometime at the end of this year and next year.
Presence of the Lord is Alive Here
Haven of Rest and Tranquility
This is my comfort spot where I find my peace and rest for years! Romey and Dwayne have really put their heart and soul into making this a haven of rest and tranquility. The love follows you and beckons you to return.
Beautiful Christian Retreat Camp
Shepherds Pasture is a beautiful Christian retreat camp. The owners and staff are accommodating and full of grace. Our family is looking forward to returning soon.
Our family enjoyed Shepherd's Pasture so very much last week! Romey and the staff were wonderful. The property is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed seeing deer a few times too! The houses were clean and airconditioned and provided everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the delicious 3 dinners cooked and served by the staff! Thanks so much for making our family reunion so wonderful!

Amazing Place to Find Yourself
This is an amazing place to find yourself. The first word that comes to mind is sanctuary!!! I came for a women’s retreat and left feeling renewed in the spirit and blessed beyond understanding!!
It is awesome. Very relaxing and lots to do.

It has hiking trails, outdoor volleyball, dining area and very cute cottages that take you back to the good ole days. You can tell that the owners really take pride into this place!! Thanks Shepherds Pasture for making my daughter’s wedding a special time.
There is a Peace Here
There is a peace here that passes all understanding, the only kind that comes from Jesus.

Great Place to Relax and Refocus!
What a quaint and precious place. The owners/founders are the real deal! Amazing work done there as a labor of love and the stories and healing taking place there are orchestrated in Heaven! Great place to relax and refocus!
This is our first time here and it is peaceful.
It’s a great place to unwind, close enough but far enough from attractions in Jefferson. Cottages are well equipped with all the comforts of home. Highly recommend.
