Mallard Manor Events Calendar
Thank you for your interest in Mallard Manor and what the Mississippi Delta has to offer in this great waterfowling experience. As hunters ourselves, we understand the strong responsibility to reach out to the young hunters of this great nation and have taken steps over the past few years in implementing a program designed to help meet this need. With that being said, we have expanded our youth and ministry programs to help meet this great need and will not be offering commercially guided hunts to the general public during the 2011-12 season. This is something that might change in the future but this is the direction that we will be headed this fall and winter season. If you are interested or know of someone who might be interested in sending their youth to one of our programs, please don’t hesitate to call or email us and be placed on our email list for future news and happenings at Mallard Manor. Below is a list of some of the events that we have coming up in the near future.
Pleaseto be placed on our email list for future news about Mallard Manor Ministries. We usually send seasonal emails pertaining to event dates being posted, etc…
2011- 2012-Pastors’ Gospel Gunnin' Hunting Retreats
Mallard Manor Ministries would like to thank all those who serve in vocational ministry by putting out a “hail call” to bi-vocational and vocational ministers of the gospel! Whether you are the senior pastor, youth pastor or maybe the worship pastor of your church…this event is for you!
Many people underestimate the power of the .410 shotgun….for this event big things do come in small packages that won’t break your wallet like $410! This includes lodging, meals, and 2 guided a.m. duck hunts! We will offer an extended stay option for $100 for those who may need the extra day for travel arrangements, which includes lodging and meals. We will not duck hunt on Thursday. Check-in will be Monday 2 p.m. – Until and Check – out will be Wednesday by or before 2 p.m. This would be a great gift to give your pastor as an appreciation for his service in ministry!
"I highly recommend this ministry to my fellow pastors." - Former Senior Pastor - Mickey Dalrymple, Fairview Baptist Church, Columbus, MS
RETREATS COMING UP:
January 3-5, 2012
January 9-11, 2012 "Bro. John "PJ" Mortensen"
Attendence Disclaimer: We are often asked whether or not someone qualifies for this event. We thank God for the diversity of ministries that exist today and it is not our goal to exclude people working in different types of ministries. As Christians, we are all ministers for the Lord, but we have a very limited amount of slots available for these events and must narrow down the attendee list to a particular group. The purpose of these events is to be an encouraging time for professional clergy to gather together with men of like mind and profession and share their goals, hurts, victories, trials, and experiences. We value all non-clerical ministers with high regard but we are not able to allow non-clergy to attend these events due to the limited space available. So, in order to qualify to attend this event, one must either be: a professional minister/clergyman that is bi-vocational or vocational who has received the call into the gospel ministry OR a professional minister/clergyman in transition between appointments.
Slots filled up quickly last season, so please don’t hesitate to give us a call today!
Outdoorsman Summer Camp Program 2012
Our summer camp is different than most because of our small group atmosphere. We host 22 campers per session. The quality of our program is extremely important to us and although we could house more campers, we choose to keep numbers low for a great experience. Here are the dates for each camp and some of the details of what your child may be involved with during their stay.

Dear Pastors and Staff Members,
It is my joy to recommend Mallard Manor and its programs for your consideration for ministry opportunities. I have been familiar with Mallard Manor from its inception as Dr. Terry Westmoreland, owner, is a faithful member of Fairview . His heart is to reach young people for Christ and to help them grow into fruitful disciples.
Dr. Westmoreland and his family have made several trips to Peru on Medical Missions and have been involved in hundreds coming to faith in Christ. Evangelism is at their hearts as a family.
Kevin Drewry, Assistant Manager/ Camp Director is a current student of New Orleans Baptist Seminary and has a heart for reaching youth. He too is connected with Fairview Baptist, having married one of our members and I can recommend his leadership with no reservations.
Mallard Manor Ministries offers a tremendous opportunity for young people to be exposed to the outdoors, to have the opportunity to develop hunting skills, and to develop in their relationship with God. We have had several youth from Fairview participate in their ministries and they have greatly benefited from the experience.
Mallard Manor is also an excellent location for deacon retreats, men's groups, etc. In addition, it is a very family friendly facility.
I am convinced any group will find an event at Mallard Manor beneficial. I can highly recommend them as a solid Christian ministry. They are theologically sound, Biblically based, evangelistically focused, and Christ centered.
Yours in reaching others,
Former Senior Pastor
Fairview Baptist Church

Dear Pastor/Church Staff
Somewhere within your church or outreach circle, there is a young person needing reached for Christ that conventional means doesn't appeal to. They enjoy the outdoors or possess a spirit of adventure that the local church doesn't seem to exhibit. If someone comes to mind as you read this, please pay attention.
A few years ago God started reaching youth and students through the outreach ministries of Mallard Manor. Inviting them to various camps and experiences at an otherwise wintertime duck hunting camp, turned out to be quite effective. Several families in my church have been reached through this innovative endeavor. Two of my three sons have also worked for Mallard Manor in this ministry. The young man that heads up this outreach is Kevin Drewry and he and his wife are members of my church.
Henry Blackaby once said, "Look for where God is working and join Him there." Friend, God is working through this ministry. Please look over their information and prayerfully consider who you may want to recommend to attend a future event. You will find their staff easy to work with and I promise they will take every possible means to accommodate your students or prospects into their events. You may also want to ask about using their facilities for some future event. We held a deacon's retreat there a few years back and our men were excited about their accommodations.
Feel free to contact me personally if I can be of further assistance.
