Triumph Youth Retreat 2018
What does Triumph mean? According to the dictionary “triumph” means, “to achieve a victory; be successful”. In 1 Samuel 26:25 Saul says to David, “May you be blessed, David my son; you will do great things and surely triumph.” This year we chose to call our youth retreat Triumph. The reason we chose this for our retreat name is that we want students to leave the weekend to go on to do great things and to triumph over obstacles that they may face. I am praying that the students will leave Triumph as completely transformed people and that they will have a life-changing weekend with God.
The theme for the weekend is “Breakthrough”. The goal for this weekend is for you to find breakthrough in your faith. Wherever you are right now, whether you in a healthy growing season, or a dry one where you are thinking about throwing in the towel. This weekend is designed to change all that and take your faith to the next level.
Beyond the Spiritual benefit of attending Triumph, I can attest that this will be one of the highlights of our year. It is a time to get away from the busyness of school, life, and everything else that may be distracting us and to focus in on building relationships with fellow peers, going skating, playing games and making memories that will last a life time.
Our retreat will take place at Camp Iawah (304 Iawah Rd, Godfrey, ON K0H 1T0), which is located 2 hours from the Church. We will leave for the retreat at 2:30pm on Feb.23 in the afternoon and will arrive back at the Church at 5:00pm on Feb.25 in the evening.
This is a Sr.High event. We are inviting all students from grades 9-12 to join us for this incredible, life-changing weekend.
The leadership team for The Exchange are very excited and are expecting God to move in a powerful way over the weekend. We have the Western Ontario Youth Director Mark Colwell speaking over the weekend accompanied by a guest worship band.
The early bird cost for Triumph is $130.00 per person and is due by February 11, 2017. After that date the cost will go up to $150 per person. This covers transportation, food, and sleeping accommodations.
It was at a retreat like this that I gave my heart to follow Jesus for the rest of my life which is why I truly believe that this retreat is an amazing opportunity for all students and I hope to see everyone there. You do not want to miss out!
