Youth ministry can be tough! We feel you. You’re always trying to find new ways to build community among your youth, deepen their relationship to God, and create an open environment where new youth feel welcome. Not to mention the constant hustle to find adult volunteers to assist and the long hours. It is such tough work, but it is also profoundly vital work!
The great news is you are not alone. Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center is here to lend a hand. April 24-26, 2020 we will be hosting our annual Youth Discipleship Retreat (YDR). Paul Schafer, from First United Methodist Church in Lexington, has taken YDR under his wing and is leading the way in creating a fantastic weekend for you and your youth.
YDR will be the only retreat on site that weekend, so your youth will have so many opportunities to explore and engage. Organized times of worship and games will help provide to deepen their faith and grow as disciples, while they also build strong ties with youth from around Kentucky.
Drew McNeil, Wesley Foundation Director at Moorehead, will be leading worship and music. Our speaker will be Aaron Mansfield, Pastor at Morehead United Methodist Church.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you home.
