Journey Senior High School Christian Retreat in Virginia

The new name Journey comes from a renewed focus on giving our high school students tools they need during our weekends together to be life-long disciples, life-long leaders and life-long followers of Christ. The themes each year will focus on spiritual disciplines and they will have an opportunity to hear from people living out their faith in all walks of life.

Rather than having one track for student leaders, each year students will have specific tracks to learn about their spiritual gifts, passions, personalities, and more. Testimonies will be an integral part of our worship time together as they hear from college students to senior adults who are living out their faith.

This year our theme is “Conversations with God” and we will focus on the spiritual discipline of prayer. Breakouts will be very experiential as students participate in different types of prayer and others that will study scripture about prayer. I’m excited about the variety of possible experiences that are shaping up.

I want to encourage you to think about ways you can use your already scheduled times of discipleship with the students before and after the weekend to encourage them in this practice of prayer.

On this page you will find a link to a flyer you can print out along with a link to the new schedule. Please note that there are some changes to the schedule this year! To register for this event please use the link to Eagle Eyrie.

All participants this year will receive a free t-shirt! Please submit a T-Shirt Order Form to Karen Rackett by February 26 to guarantee the correct shirt sizes for your group. (We have created a T-Shirt Size Sheet for your convenience when gathering sizes for your group.) We cannot guarantee correct sizes for those forms received after February 26, but we will do our best to accommodate everyone.
