The time has come to begin planning for our Youth Retreats. Our retreats are the best events that we do all year long. If your student could only come to one event this year, I would recommend that they come to the retreat. The retreats provide an opportunity for students to get away from their daily routine and focus on their relationships with God and others. Over the years, many students point back to a youth retreat as a turning point in their relationship with God.
The retreats will be held at Camp Echoing Hills in Warsaw, Ohio again this year. We will meet on Friday at 5 PM and return to the church on Sunday as the second service is letting out around 12:15 PM. The cost is $70.
The speaker for the Sr. High retreat will be Patrick Stalnaker. Patrick grew up near Lakeland Florida and graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Business Administration. He went on to get a Masters of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and is currently completing his Doctor of Ministry degree from Southeastern. Patrick serves as the Pastor of Students and Families at First Baptist of Kettering. He and his wife Anne have a 9 year old daughter, and sons who are 6 and 5 years old. Patrick is a fan of the USF Bulls and the Boston Red Sox. He is a huge fan of Lecrae. His favorite restaurant is J. Alexander’s. He enjoys working out and is currently doing the p90x3 fitness program.
