Life is crazy. Especially for High Schoolers. Between school, sports, plays, choir, friends and family, it’s difficult to make time for God. Even youth group can feel like another item on the to-do list. This fall retreat is a great way for students to take a small step back and refocus on their relationship with God. These extended times away from the to-dos of life are so essential for our spiritual growth. We invite you to this fall retreat for just that purpose. Look forward to great worship and Biblical messages from our speaker.

Rebekah grew up in Northwest Oregon and after years living in Southern California and Chicago she is excited to be back in the Northwest. She graduated with a Bachelor of Communications from Azusa Pacific University in 2008 and a Master of Divinity from North Park Theological Seminary in 2013. While living in Chicago Rebekah was privileged to serve as an interim youth pastor at Winnetka Covenant Church as well as Northwest Covenant Church. She has served in a number of capacities at Cascades Camp and Conference Center in Yelm, WA over 5 different summers including managing the Ranch and serving as Camp Pastor. Rebekah’s heart for ministry lies in working with youth and helping create a space where they can encounter God and grow in discipleship. It is her great hope that young people would find in the Church a place of depth and relevance, a place where they belong and can serve, a place where they can find their identity and share life together. Oh, and a place to have a lot of fun! Rebekah loves to be in the glory of nature, to sing and dance, to drink coffee, to eat good food and be with good people.
