Leadership for Life and Ministry Retreat/Sleepover

April 1-2, 2022

Teens, come grow in learning how to live out your faith in Christ as a leader in life and ministry! This event is designed for 8-12th graders who are interested in being “all-in” on the topic of personal leadership development. Younger students who are interested in engaging on this topic at an older student maturity level should have a parent communicate this interest to Pastor Greg.

Pickup: 5:00 pm Saturday, Apr. 2 (before dinner)
