Spring Youth Retreat April 5-7, 2019
Theme: Living on Purpose
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
At Spring Retreat this year, we will focus on the idea of intentionality in faith. Intentionality is doing something for a reason – on purpose. Intentionality helps us address a crucial question that we often have as we wrestle with our faith: Why, does it so often feel like the best we can do is turn on “autopilot” and try to get through the day? Is living life on “autopilot” what God really wants for us? No! God calls us to so much more – to follow him and follow Jesus’ example as we live out our lives. Through this retreat, we aim to help you understand who God is, why he cares about you, and why he calls us to live intentional lives every day where no moment is wasted. Come ready to experience what God has prepared for you, whether it be learning who he is for the first time or growing deeper in your faith. We can’t wait to see you!
Directors: Mikel Nisse and Tony Pellitteri
Speaker: Andrew Derr
Andrew is the youth pastor at River City Church in Spokane, WA. Originally from LA, he moved up here with his wife in the summer of 2015 and they have two young boys, Titus and Reuben. Andrew graduated from Moody Bible Institute this past summer and has felt a strong tug on his life from God towards Student Ministry. Andrew was also the speaker last year at the 2018 Spring Retreat and is excited to come back and share the message with us again!
Ross Point is a place to be challenged and recharged. The director, speaker and counselors are excited to experience it with you.
