Winter Retreat North

 Feb. 16-18, 2018

This year's speaker is Pastor Brian Daniels.      

  Brian has served in various roles in ministry including Youth Pastor, Worship Pastor, and Lead Pastor. His main passion has always been youth ministries – he has served the majority of his ministry as a youth pastor, youth speaker, and youth ministries trainer and consultant.

   He desires to call teens to a more “radical” life of following Christ. His life verse is Matthew 16:24 where Jesus says, “If you want to be my disciple, turn aside from your selfish ambitions, take up your cross, and follow Me.” Brian believes this involves more than just faithful Sunday/Wednesday church attendance and good morals. Christ calls us to abandon EVERYTHING and follow Him.
