The Journey – Young Adult Hiking Retreat


The October hike is now full.  If you would like to be added to the waiting list please email

“Solvitur Ambulando” is a Latin phrase attributed to Saint Augustine which roughly translates to “In walking, it is solved.”  It is often hard at times to find the space and time to be available to the loving call and presence of our God. THE JOURNEY is an intentional space for reflection, prayer, retreat, fellowship, and adventure hosted by the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry utilizing the North Trail at Land between the Lakes.
