The purpose of Signs of Life Winter Retreat is to encourage today’s youth to grow in their love for Jesus, to hold fast to God’s Word, to serve in their local churches, and to proclaim the Gospel to all peoples. With an aim to fulfill this purpose, we join together every winter for three days of Bible-saturated teaching, singing, workshops, and fellowship. We're humbled at how God has graciously used this short time each year to challenge, refresh, and equip His people.
This year’s theme – Lost & Found – comes from Luke 15, where we read three parables about the joyful finding of a lost sheep, a lost coin, and a lost son. Whether you’re new to Christianity or you’ve been a Christian for many years, Luke 15 offers important lessons for all of us about the dual dangers of worldliness and legalism, and – most importantly – about the God who seeks to set us free from both!
It's our firm belief that all Christians – both young and old – should be actively involved in the work of ministry. For this reason, we offer a variety of workshops to give students an opportunity to develop the gifts that God has given them and to perhaps explore new avenues of ministry. Workshops include: Apologetics, Bible Teaching, Biblical Counseling, Drama, Music, Preaching, Puppetry, and Service (new this year).
