Renewal is a four-day retreat designed for EFCA youth workers and their spouses to get away to reconnect with God, one another, their calling and their identity. While this retreat is designed for youth workers and their spouses, all EFCA youth workers are welcome. The worship gatherings, schedule and environment are all designed to facilitate these “renewal reconnections.” Our desire is to encourage long-term, healthy student ministries by ministering to the youth workers.

In our sessions, you will experience prayer, worship and the opportunity to interact and minister with and to one another. Our speaker will focus on speaking life into your soul. This is not a training conference. It is a renewal conference. The wisest man to ever live, King Solomon, spoke these words to his son in Proverbs 4:23: “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” There are times the wisest and most responsible thing we can do for our own souls and ministries is to focus some deliberate attention on our hearts.

Your afternoons are free to lay by the pool, sight-see, have lunch with new friends or simply reflect and rest.
