If there’s one truism in college ministry, it’s “You HAVE to go on fall retreat.” This is Sojourn’s first College Fall Retreat and we are trusting God for big things.
First, it’s a time to make some great friendships. The one hour car-ride, the basketball/ultimate games at midnight, and the ample free time all provide great opportunities to get outside yourself and make some new friends.
Second, it’s a time to breathe a little and trust God for Sabbath rest. The retreat is over U of L’s fall break, so it’s a great chance to put down the busyness of life for one weekend and experience the rest that God calls us into.
Third, it’s a time to draw near to God. There is something unique about experiencing God’s creation, hearing God’s Word, and singing his praises together with older believers. In Matthew 5:7, Jesus promises that “whoever seeks will find.” We are praying that God will work in powerful ways in students lives this weekend.
