Life Gatherings A Gathering Of Young People Who are Pursuing Christ As Life
A “Life Gathering” is a time when young people gather to GO AFTER JESUS in an all out heart pursuit of Christ as their Life. These gatherings exist when hearts come together that are all being deeply drawn by a desire to know Jesus. The first disciples felt it … LIFE was drawing them out as they went after Jesus. It is a Spirit ignited heart movement towards LIFE. The animals felt it as they moved towards the ark that Noah built. The “twos” that were hungering felt the call and began to move towards an experience that would carry them into New Life. Our first goal is to gather to know Christ in ways that will transform us through His Life within. It is because of the Spirit’s unction that is drawing us to know and be with Him that we declare, “Unto Him shall the gathering be”. This is not a social gathering or a tourist trip, rather it is an all-out heart pursuit of Christ as our Life.
A Young Adult's Retreat will be a time of refreshing and going deeper in the Lord. Other young people's trips have been focused on sending young people to pour out Jesus through means such as evangelism and children's ministry. During these retreats we are sending the young people to Jesus.
Young Adult's Retreats will be a respite for young people who desperately want to grow into the vessels of Christ that they will need to be in order to take up the mantle of Christ crucified for their generation. This trip is first and foremost a ministry to those going on it.
