PSWC Youth and Children’s Leaders Retreat



To build community in small groups by reflecting on our call to ministry and discussing God’s call for this next season of ministry together.

Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.


We will spend time in small groups reading scripture together, walking together, and praying together.  Collectively, we will speak into each other’s lives as we listen to the Holy Spirit and pay attention to what we read.


There will be no primary speaker at this event, and we have not scheduled someone to come in and lead us in worship.  Our time will be devoted to knowing each other, reading scripture, listening in prayer, and encouraging each other.

Often you can only get a clear sense of calling by looking backwards in life.

Free Time:

There will be considerable free time to relax and connect with others. Hopefully, Haley will bring her Volleyball Net!

Opportunities include: Going out for coffee in Santa Cruz, going to the beach, hiking in the mountains, taking a nap, or enjoying the grounds at Mission Springs.
