youth + Young adult retreat


What's Retreat?

For over 10 years, our youth and young adults have gathered together for summer retreats, an annual gathering where young people come to encounter God, be equipped by the Word, and grow in fellowship. Year after year, God moves in incredible ways that have shaped our young generation to take ownership of their faith and live a life sold out to Jesus. We are so excited for what God has in store this year and invite you to come and join us as we experience the power and love of God!

Hear how retreat has impacted lives!

"Retreat is life changing. My first retreat was back in 2009 for Got Deep, and every year I've been so blessed by the speaker and the worship team. I strongly encourage you guys to go! You don't want to miss it!"

- Jonathan N.

"When I thought there was no hope, God was willing to chase after me through the people in my life. It's so amazing how much He wants me."

- Debby T.

"I've been to retreat many years. I've seen God come and answer prayers, God come and meet us there. I see retreat as a place to step out of the ordinary. To step our of our daily lives to come meet God and to see God face to face and truly retreat to the mountains just as Jesus did."

- Josh S.

"Retreat is always a highlight of my year and each year God refreshes me and gives me the strength, hope, and faith to walk out the season He's placed me in. There's nothing more amazing than gathering with a group of young people that are hungry for more of God."

-Sharon S.
