Senior High Winter Blast

Old Mill Point January 13 - January 15, 2023

Our Winter Blast weekend retreats are specifically designed for Senior High and Junior High church youth groups to explore core themes of God’s word, find rest in God’s creation, and enjoy several snow-filled activities, like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and broomball. We wish to provide as much opportunity as possible for youth groups to get away and have a spiritually enriching experience.

Interested in bringing your church youth group? Youth Leaders can contact [email protected] for more information on how to register.

Guest Speaker: Dave Mathias

Originally from Central Wisconsin, Dave spent several of his formative years as a missionary kid in Belgium. He has since traveled to over 20 countries, most recently to serve in short-term medical mission work. Dave also served as a combat physician (Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2004-05), where he was awarded the Bronze Star and Combat Medical Badge.

Serving now as a full-time pediatrician, Dave has a firm grasp on the many challenges facing today’s teens and is also the parent of six children himself. He is a committed Bible teacher in his local church and passionate about helping shape the worldviews of future Christ Followers, by drawing from his study of science and medicine to better demonstrate the connections between science and faith in God.
