Upcoming SLR weekends focus on the I Am Third as the theme for 2018 

Wouldn't it be great to have a quality weekend retreat where you could trust the content, spend time with your youth (instead of worrying about the setup of the next session), and come back with a group of youth and adults who are stronger and more capable than when they left? 

This year's Spiritual Life Retreats will strengthen your youth ministry and allow you and your adult leaders some much-needed quality time with your youth while our staff takes on the responsibility of the setup, take down, and running of the weekend.

The theme of this year's Spiritual Life Retreats at Glisson Camping and Retreat Center is I Am Third - helping your youth recognize that in all decisions and service, God comes first, others are second, and... "I am third." It's necessary, if we are to follow Christ, that we have a heart of service. Jesus taught those closest to him to serve one another; he declared that he came, not to be served, but to serve others. In living that example as our teacher, we also must serve if we are to be like him.

Spiritual Life Retreats happen every spring in North Georgia on three different weekends. Each year these retreats attract more than 1000 youth and adult leaders from all over the North Georgia Conference. The three weekends in 2018 (March 2-4, March 9-11, and March 16-18) are identical in content, though the bands and speakers change each weekend. Groups can register for any weekend and be assured of a quality retreat designed with the purpose of enriching the opportunities of spiritual growth for its participants and making your church ministry thrive. The retreats are designed and led by other youth and adult leaders in the conference, offering another level of leadership development to youth in the conference. 

Cost for a weekend is $145 per person, but if you register and pay by January 15, 2018, you can save $20 per person. That covers four meals, lodging for two nights, all program costs, a t-shirt, some training opportunities for your team of adults, and an amazing time with your group. We'll also send you a copy of the curriculum early so you can see what your youth will be discussing this year in their small groups.
