WHEN:   Saturday & Sunday, August 24-25, 2019

WHERE: Timber-lee Christian Conference Center

WHO:   Parish Teen Leaders & Peer Ministry Teams!

Join us for the Annual Cultivation Ministries’ Peer Ministry Team & Teen Leadership Retreat. For over 20 years, hundreds of teens from the Midwest have gathered to grow in their faith, build community, and develop practical skills for peer ministry and parish leadership.

This year’s theme, STAND UP!, calls us as leaders to be respectful to all and yet definitive in our faith; stand for God and stand up for others. The weekend will help us grow in our relationship with Jesus, plug into authentic Christian community, and live our mission of being missionary disciples by bringing the JOY of the Gospel to everyone we encounter!

John Donahue-Grossman will be our featured keynoter and Emcee for the weekend. Workshop presenters include Frank Mercadante, John Donahue-Grossman, Christine Paolella, and Diane Mercadante. For more info on the presenters, click here.

Workshop Sessions include:

  • Become An Engaging Facilitator
  • Embodied Contemplative Practices
  • Leading Small Groups
  • Addressing Disaffiliation  (Adult Workshop)

As always, there will be interactive activities that will challenge your team to become stronger and more committed to each other, powerful prayer experiences, and great worship music. Explore the schedule!
