Youth Workers Retreat

Unify. Encourage. Equip.


Youth ministry is both rewarding and tiring. This retreat is meant to encourage, equip, and unify those on the front lines of ministry. Come and enjoy the fellowship of Hume Lake staff and other like-minded youth workers of all walks of life! You will be challenged and inspired as we study God’s Word together and return home refreshed, better connected, and spiritually prepared for whatever God has in store for you!
