Youth Ministry Overnight

Attention Youth Ministers
& Youth Volunteers!

September 28-30, 2017

The Purpose of the Youth Ministry Overnight:  The basic purpose of our time together this year at Gasper River is to rejuvenate the soul and grow in ministry.  For that reason, the experience is defined very specifically with a day and a little more of retreat and a day of profession formation.  Our retreat will center around 1 John 4: 19 “We love because he first loved us” and will begin Thursday night with a time of prayer and end Friday afternoon.   On Saturday we will spend our time reflecting and evaluating our youth ministry efforts on the parish and diocesan level, especially in light of the New Evangelization.  Along the way, there will be laughter, surprises, good food and drink, and great opportunities to build community.
