About the Retreat

This retreat is intentionally designed to create a special environment for young adults who want to grow in their walk with the Lord. This is an opportunity to come encounter The Living God in a tangible way. Experience His beauty and majesty in all of His creation. Join alongside others from various backgrounds in prayer, worship, and fellowship.

GFA World invites you to join us for three days spent in the Lord’s presence as a group and as individuals. This is not a weekend of preaching and teaching, but of resting in God and learning how to do so when you go back to all the noise and disruption of our day-to-day lives.

Our Hopes for You

  • Experience worship that helps you encounter God in a richer and deeper way
  • Learn and practice historic Christian devotional exercises that help you live in God’s presence
  • Enjoy community on our GFA campus with believers from diverse backgrounds
  • Reset and rest in the peaceful environment here at GFA World’s U.S. campus
  • Become a believer who walks in God’s purposes and impacts the world around them

“I believe I've experienced more growth as a believer during my time here than in the four years before I came. The Lord has a unique atmosphere of godly people here. The leaders, especially, have impacted my life greatly. Their actions, more than their words, have spoken to my heart the most and have challenged me to live a life that truly reflects Christ. My heart is to please God and only Him. I'm glad I'm in a place where I have good examples I can follow. Never have I been certain that I was in the will of God until this year.”

—Damelia, a graduate of GFA World's discipleship program
