Mother and Daughter Weekend
May 6-8, 2022
Tilikum offers programs that emphasize times of spiritual and relational renewal, exploring creation, building community, encountering God and transforming lives. Whether exploring the grounds during a nature hike, or racing up the Climbing Wall together, the setting, the people, and the presence of God create an ideal opportunity to experience life side by side. Mothers and daughters (entering 1st grade and up) are invited to retreat together in a relaxing, country setting. Highlights include three fun-filled days of laughter, fun activities and great Bible teaching, all in a spectacular setting surrounded by God’s beautiful creation. Best of all, the memories made during this very special weekend will last forever! The weekend price includes lodging for two nights, five meals and all program activities.

Hi, my name is Gina. Who am I? Well, honestly, first and foremost, I am a child of the Living God. More than what I do, who I am, and what I invest my time in, I am His child. My life is centered around that fact. I like to say that I have a big mouth for God, in that, I LOVE to share God stories. You know, those things that happen in life that only God could have orchestrated. Also, I just really love people. I am ‘that’ person who talks with pretty much anyone around. Social, outgoing, yeah, that is me….the more people I know, the better! I love listening to others and hearing their stories and offering encouragement and truth where I can.
I believe that God has given each person a unique set of traits, talents, and passions and it’s so cool that we are all different in that sense. God has given me a love for adventure and travel, creativity, fun, and yes, a love for people!
I love spending time with my family. My husband and I have been married for twelve years. We truly love living life together. We have two adorable and rather hilarious children, a boy and a girl. I am currently homeschooling them and they teach me more about myself every day. They also mirror my goofy personality. I also serve as a mentor for the George Fox Bridge Network Program and lead a homeschool group at our church in Newberg. I used to be a teacher, coach, and athlete-all things that I love- and all things that are in God’s hands.
I believe we are meant for community and all have a story to share. I love sharing what God places on my heart in hopes that it will make a difference in the lives of others. Blessings! Gina
Worship Leader – Debbie Dingman
Debbie has enjoyed camp cooking ministry for 27 years, the last eleven of them here at Tilikum. This last year she became involved in the Community Dinners program in Newberg. She and her husband Ron have remodeled an 1896 Victorian farmhouse in Newberg and raised their son Shawn and daughter Jenny there. They treasure their 3 grandsons who are 11, 8, and 6 years old. She is passionate about music and how God uses it to speak to us and call us into worshiping Him. A love for Irish music developed a desire to learn the concertina and penny whistle although piano, drums, and percussion are her first instruments. Ron and Debbie attend Newberg Friends Church where she is part of the worship ministry there. She also loves the beach, quilting, landscape design, and any excuse to have tea or go out to a restaurant.
