Ignite Youth Retreat Nears 1000 Participants

Date Posted: 4/3/2012

Over 900 youth and adults participated in the Ignite Midwinter Youth Retreats during the last two weekends of February.


Following the “Ipromise 5” theme, young people journeyed through the five major covenants of scripture and linked these to modern day relationships with God and one another.


The retreat theme and messages were based on a popular book among youth ministries in the Texas Conference, “The Epic of Eden” by Dr. Sandra L. Richter. With four guest speakers, Two worship leaders, five worship experiences, small group discussions, and many different ministry workshops and recreational activities each weekend, all were ignited with a new awareness of God’s passionate pursuit of relationship with humanity across the ages.


Many of our district camps have chosen to continue the theme of covenant in the week-long programs at Lakeview this summer.
