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 Biblesaturated 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 – Peace in the Storm – comes from John 14:27, where Jesus offers His disciples a peace that this world cannot provide. It’s no secret that life can be really hard! We all struggle with various trials and tribulations. But in Jesus, we’re given a peace that calms our troubled hearts and that gives us courage to face whatever challenges life may bring. Jesus never promises to calm every “storm” in our lives, but He does promise us peace in the storm!
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, Missions, Music, Preaching, Puppetry, and Service.
