Focusing on Christ's Undying Sacrifice
In a day and age where teens are challenged to know why they believe what they believe and are bombarded with never-ending temptation, In-FOCUS Youth Ministries exists to focus today’s generation of teenagers on the one thing that will clarify all the blurriness in their lives: a relationship with Jesus Christ. We have a burning desire to teach our young people, not simple outward conformity as many churches do, but the importance of true inward change.
Every year, around the end of January and beginning of February, we hold a youth retreat. This retreat runs from Thursday afternoon through Saturday morning. It is a great time of fun, fellowship, food, and heart provoking challenges from God’s Word.
We rotate between 2 camps: the Wilds in Brevard, NC and the Wilds in Deering, NH. Both camps have amazing games, free time activities, food, and caring staff. But most importantly is the heavy spiritual focus of the camps. This is an amazing week of spiritual growth away from the hustle and bustle of the normal schedule and from the distractions of ever present technology. Each day they have scheduled God & I time, 2 main services (morning and evening), as well as an afternoon session focused on different aspects of the Christian life. This is all done to fulfill the mission of the Wilds to “share the truth of God, with the Love of God, so that lives can be changed to the Glory of God.”
