Youth will "Break Out" at Encounter youth retreat


Encounter, set for Nov. 18-20 at Epworth By The Sea on St. Simons Island, is a three-day weekend retreat designed to help students in 6th-12th grades encounter God in their own individual ways. The retreat will offer passionate worship, relevant Bible study, and opportunities to strengthen bonds within church groups around the conference.

Rev. Jonathan Smith, campus minister at Georgia Southern University’s Wesley Foundation, will be the retreat speaker. With the theme “Break Out,” Smith will share how Christian teens can have the confidence in Christ to be in the world, but not of the world. 

Encounter is a Safe Sanctuaries compliant event requiring every adult chaperone to be Safe Sanctuaries certified. 

The cost is $130 per person, which includes lodging, meals, insurance, and a t-shirt. The deadline for registration is Nov. 8 and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
