(For Middle School Youth)
March 31-April 2, 2017
Mar-Lu-Ridge Retreat & Conference Center
$120 per person ($90 for LYO youth) includes:
program, housing, meals and a t-shirt!
We gather to explore the lives of losers and unintended all-stars, messed up people, saints and sinners, called by God and shaped by God to be leaders in the church, in their community, and in the world. Leadership isn’t about being perfect—it’s about courageous, risk-taking leadership in the face of adversity, about being open to the call of God and the needs of our community, whatever the cost and despite our weaknesses and anxiety.
This leadership retreat for Middle School youth is your opportunity to send as many as four young people and one adult adviser for a weekend of faith exploration and leadership development. You'll want to send 8th graders on the cusp of becoming your next group of leaders, 6th graders who are just starting to show signs of leadership, or anyone in between. Who you send is up to you!
