Goal of this Retreat
The goal of the retreat is to empower all the teenagers to make personal commitments to change the way they are living and to instead live for Christ. The teens will be able to recognize the sin in their lives, reconcile that sin, and make a commitment to change their lives. Furthermore, they will have the opportunity to join together with their peers to keep that commitment and set a foundation to walk the walk in their daily lives. This decision will allow Christ to become so present in their lives that when they leave the retreat they will be living witnesses to the world or Christ “In the Flesh” to those they encounter at home, in school, and everywhere they go.
Overview of this Retreat
Through funny interruption skits, one-on-one time with CORE members and powerful conversion experiences, the teenagers will realize that they might be the only contact that someone else will ever have with Jesus Christ. The retreat has a medical theme with several skits about a teen (John Doe) and his heart transplant. The youth minister is featured as a doctor who is on-call for the weekend. Several CORE members will serve as nurses and other hospital personnel as the drama unfolds.
