Fall Middle School Retreat

JUMP Fall Retreat for 5th-8th grade youth groups

October 27-29, 2017

JUMP into the youth ministry year with a retreat at GENEVA in the fall. Join other area youth groups as we celebrate in worship and dive into Scripture. Our worship leader will be Josh Zimmerman, former GENEVA summer staff member. Our speaker will be Louis Ford, former GENEVA summer staff member and current Associate Pastor of Spiritual Life at First Reformed Church in Holland, Michigan. Small group breakout time following each worship session provide the opportunity for you to engage each talk at a deeper level with your students. Activity options led by GENEVA's summer staff fill out the schedule and provide great opportunities for leaders to play alongside students and get to know them as you begin the program year.

Leaders, please send a $25 deposit for each student you wish to hold a spot for. Total cost is $105 per student, $25 per leader. GENEVA requires a ratio of 1 leader for every 10 students and you must have a leader for both male and female students. The only additional costs for the retreat are if students wish to bring spending money for snacks and beverages at the store, most of which cost about a dollar.
