Registration for the 2020 Retreat has now closed.
Join us for our 26th Annual Presbyterian Women’s Retreat!
Monday, January 27 – Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Solomon Episcopal Conference Center
During our time there, we will worship and pray together, study scripture, renew friendships, and simply recharge our batteries. And, of course, the retreat wouldn’t be complete without the many traditions we cherish: worship in the chapel, woodland walks, the social hour before dinner, the labyrinth, the campfire, and the newly added mission project.
“The Power of Forgiveness and Reconciliation”
Rev. Dolly Campbell Jacobs, Retreat Leader
Rev. Dolly Campbell Jacobs grew up in New Orleans and was a member of St. Charles Ave. Presbyterian Church (confirmed by Dr. Kenneth Phifer). Her dad, Charlie King, is still an active member as is her nephew Wes Simon who is a devoted 8:30 am usher. She was active in the SCAPC youth group, youth choir and youth handbells (with Steven Blackmon!). Her most powerful memories of SCAPC include preaching on Youth Sunday when she was in 8th grade and attending the Montreat Youth Conference each summer in high school. SCAPC was extremely formative to her call to ministry.
After graduating from Auburn University in March of 1994, she returned to New Orleans and worked at SCAPC as the Director of Youth Ministry with Don Frampton as the head of staff. She also worked as the Director of Youth Ministry at First Presbyterian Church in Shreveport, LA before attending Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. In 2003, she received her Masters of Divinity and was ordained as a PC USA pastor at First Presbyterian Church, Greensboro, NC.
For 16 years, she has been an Associate Pastor at FPC, Greensboro. Her areas of experience include discipleship (visitor and new member ministry), worship, and pastoral care. She is currently a doctoral student at San Francisco Theological Seminary and hopes to complete her studies in 2020 with a DMin. in Pastoral Care and Counseling.
She is married to Bill Jacobs, a native of Greensboro, NC and has two daughters, Sydney and Ce Ce. In their free time, they love to walk their yellow lab Coco, read books, watch movies, and attend their daughters’ various sporting events. She LOVES to entertain and cook gumbo and jambalaya for all North Carolinians willing to try it. (Of which she says, 95% of those who try it love it 😊).
