Speaking Topics

To Love and be Loved

We love because he first loved us (1 John 4:19). It sounds good, it sounds spiritual – but what does it look like to practically experience the love of God in a way that spurs us to love others? How do we allow ourselves to be connected in authentic relationship to the God of the universe? It’s possible, and it’s life-changing.

Because He’s Real

Behold, I am doing a new thing… (Isaiah 43:19). Because God is real and because we believe, everything should be different, right? The circumstances, the relationships … so what happens if they’re not? If we struggle and walk uphill and feel weary? There is hope. This retreat helps us live the reality of our belief when life is messy.

The Artist

To give them a crown of beauty for ashes…(Isaiah 61:3). Each piece of our story has a place in the masterpiece God is fashioning. We don’t have to hide our past or pretend through our present. Learn to weave your past into your present as God crafts your future, and experience joy in the process.

One True Love

It’s easy to say, “I’ll find my value in Christ, I won’t compromise in a dating relationship just to be with someone.” But that statement is much more difficult to live out. Refusing arms that may be unhealthy in order to pursue a relationship with our God is no easy thing — but it can be done!

Broken Pieces

We don’t have to sweep our broken pieces under the rug. As we set them before him, God will do the most amazing things with our brokenness. This retreat walks through the process — how to help it along, and the things we do to get in the way.
