Junior High Retreat: October 25-27
This year we are excited to welcome back Rod Tillery. Rod has been serving as a Youth Pastor for the past 14 years and recently moved to San Diego as an outreach pastor. He is passionate about helping people find freedom in Christ and grow in their role as sons and daughters of God. Rod and his wife Kate have been married for nine years and they have four amazing kids. Fishing, watching Duck Dynasty and having mud fights with his four kids are some of his favorite ways to relax. A favorite quote –“I love God and my family and lots of friends. I love to encourage people to become better, love people to greatness and make them laugh all along the way”.
The Exchange. From 25 years collectively serving as worship leaders, their rock and worship songs rise out of their experiences of walking alongside and ministering to this generation. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, The Exchange's message reminds us that in this disconnected and dark world, there is a hope of healing that is found through the exchange Jesus made on the cross for our lives. (1 Peter 2:24). Delivered with solid music; songs such as “You Are Good”, “Beautiful King” and “I Give” celebrate that God is a good God who is deeply devoted to us.
Senior High Retreat: November 8-10
