50 + students, 8 staff and visitors dropping by throughout the weekend made this retreat unforgettable (accept getting destroyed playing paintball - I'm still trying to forget that, thanks a lot Nikki!). The retreat was amazing. This picture is a picture of Jake, Joseph and Ben leading us in an amazing time of praise (GREAT job this weekend guys). It was great getting to spend so much time with so many students and seeing God work in all of our lives. We're 6 weeks in to the new school year and the retreat couldn't have come at a better time. We had a ton of fun, developed amazing relationships, ate great food, and grew in our walks with God. The theme of the retreat was "Eternal Perspective." Leah started it all out with a talk on "Eternal Citizens." She did a great job clarifying the 2 kingdoms and clearly shared the gospel. Check out her talk here:
Erin (my beautiful wife) continued, discussing "Eternal Hope" in light of the pain and suffering around us. Get her notes here and listen to her amazing talk below.
I concluded the retreat talking about "Eternal Significance" and life purpose. Get my notes here and the MP3 below.
Retreats are always amazing! Watch the video below for a little more on what they're all about and students, get ready for the next one - mark Nov. 4-6 on your calendars!
