Come and enjoy fellowship with other clergy spouses while embarking on a path of spiritual renewal.

Dr. Barbara (Pokey) Stanford is wife, mother, daughter, friend and advocate who is passionate about helping men and women find spiritual strength and supportive companionship through scripture and friendship. She is the wife of Shane Stanford, mother of three daughters, Sarai Grace (20), Juli Anna (17), and Emma Leigh (13). Her experiences as a classroom teacher, university professor, church volunteer, mini-van mom, wife of someone with a chronic illness and all those roles that define women enable her to use everyday living as the fertile soil for the fruit of the spirit.

Pokey holds an EdD in Special Education from the University of Southern Mississippi, and she has taught in the public schools in Mississippi and North Carolina. As a professor of education at William Carey University and USM, she worked with countless educators as a teacher and mentor. Her professional, personal and spiritual journey has led her to the development of this retreat.
Guest Speaker, Dr. Barbara (Pokey) Stanford, is a former clergy spouse in the Mississippi conference and is now serving with her husband Dr. Shane Stanford at Christ United Methodist Church in Memphis, Tennessee.
