About Us


Rick and Andrea Duwe

We’ve been a team since 1983. We have 2 Sons, 2 Daughters-in-Love and 4 incredible Grand Children. Rick is an artist and Andrea is a Labor and Delivery Nurse. We both love God, our Family, our Country, the Great Outdoors and four-footed Creatures.

You may be wondering about the Venue's name “Soli Deo Gloria.” Soli Deo Gloria is a Latin phrase that means “Glory to God Alone.” This is our one and only desire. Everything good flows out of this desire including your unique and beautiful event.

SDG is a family owned business. Rick and Andrea Duwe are privileged to be the caretakers and live on the property. Everyone in the family and all of the staff at SDG are Christians who want to reflect glory to God alone.

Rick and Son, Dave, designed and built the Chapel, Party Hall and Guest Cabin. All 3 structures on the campus were constructed from reclaimed wood from Andrea's Great Grandparents' old home place built in 1883, the Church of Christ building in Greenwood built in 1908 and a neighbor's barn built in 1885. All 3 buildings were painstakingly torn down, the wood brought to Greenwood and then meticulously crafted to finish out the inside of SDG's 3 buildings.

Thank you for choosing Soli Deo Gloria. We are fully invested in helping you achieve your dream wedding or event!
