       Leader Retreat

    This annual retreat is designed for high schoolers and college students who want to really grow in their faith. It features a mix of games and prayer, talks and small group, collaborative activities and individual reflection. Our goal is for each leader or potential leader - whether they've led for years or are just starting to get more involved in their faith - to grow as leaders, to grow closer to their peers in our community, and to grow closer to God.

    And we plan to have a blast along the way!
    Information on dates/times/locations will be posted before the next scheduled leaders' retreat.  Registration for the Leaders' Retreat will open Spring 2020.
