Youth Ministry Leaders Retreat 2015
As residents of the Northwest, we live in a very beautiful and diverse part of the United States. In God’s grace and mercy, we can step back, stop, and enjoy God’s creation. For three days near the end of February, we sponsor the annual Baptist Network Northwest and Northwest Youth Ministry retreat for our network youth pastors, and youth pastors and their wives. This past February, we made arrangements to meet for a time of mutual encouragement, fabulous prayer and networking through fellowship together. With a simple agenda of encouraging one another and praying together, the Lord worked in our hearts in very exciting ways, especially this year.
The Lord blessed us with spectacular weather and views of the mountains around the cities of Bend and Redmond in Eastern Oregon, but, seeing the sweet fellowship unfold was more beautiful than the panoramic vistas of creation we enjoyed.
