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? 

The upcoming 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 thte upcoming Spiritual Life Retreats at Glisson Camping and Retreat Center is "Room at the Table," centering around making room for listening to each other and inviting people to gather in one body. You can mark your calendar for the retreat and even start promoting it with your group.

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 2019 are March 22-24, March 29-31 and April 5-7. The weekends 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. In fact, if you wish to encourage some of your high school youth or college age (or adults) to serve on staff they should go to https://www.ngumc.org/servingonstaffatretreats.

Cost for a weekend is $145 per person, but if you register and pay by January 15, 2019, you can save $15 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. Below are the links for each of the three SLR 2019 weekends. They  are setup for 400 participants each weekend with the option for each group to add Alpine/Swing, Zipline, or High Elements (High V and Giant's Ladder) at an additional charge. The minimum deposit is $30/participant (non-refundable) and is required online to complete a reservation of spots for the group.

(Note: When registering during the early bird time...before January 15th...when initially booking the spots, the price will display for the full cost of $145, but the discount will display at the end upon checkout.)
