Spring has sprung, and it is just beautiful here at the Mann Center. Every day Duane and I marvel at GOD’s splendor as we look out and see HIS wonderful creations. The trees, birds chirping, our 2 resident geese, squirrels, turkeys, butterflies, and all of the sights and sounds of nature are just amazing to see and hear every day.
We are “gearing up” for our busy season, and already we have experienced increased usage with graduation parties, weekend retreats, family reunions, and other events.
We were truly blessed to have been able to host the Easter Sunrise service for Brooklet First Baptist which they opened up to the entire association. A very good crowd attended this service, and it was a great way to start off an Easter Sunday.
We were also truly blessed on May 10th when we had the WMU from Statesboro First Baptist come here for a tour of our facilities. I thoroughly enjoyed these special ladies as I showed them the facilities and talked about the history of the Mann Center for about 45 minutes. What a blessing these GOD-ly women were to me on that day.
We continue to ask you to remember us in your prayers and with your financial assistance.
GOD bless you all.

Nestled in the woods on the outskirts of Brooklet, Georgia on approximately 75 acres, you will find the W. W. Mann Retreat and Conference Center. As a ministry of the Ogeechee River Baptist Association, the Mann Center provides a serene, isolated and worshipful atmosphere for all that come. Whether you just want to get away for a day picnic, a weekend getaway, or a longer stay, the Mann Center is the place for you.
The Mann Center has overnight cabins that sleep up to 25 people, a small dining hall/meeting room that will accommodate approximately 60 guests, a larger dining hall/meeting room that will seat approximately 170 people, a chapel that can hold approximately 100 worshipers, a lodge with private rooms, a gazebo, and an amphitheater.
The Mann Center also has 2 fishing ponds (no fishing license required), a creek for fishing, and a swimming pond. Other recreational options include: a full size basketball court, regulation volleyball court, horse shoe pits, an athletic field, and a large playground.
We like to think that the Mann Center is a “little piece of heaven” where folks can get away from the “hustle and bustle” of everyday life and relax, meditate, pray, or just “recoup” from the stress and strain of our fast-paced society.
The Mann Center rents our facilities to church groups, school groups, private citizens, and others as long as they adhere to our policy of letting your actions glorify God.
We hope all who seek a place for their activities would consider choosing the W. W. Mann Retreat and Conference Center. Contact us at: 912-842-2460, 912-531-2946 or email@example.com .
