In Youth Ministry Soul Keeper

Our students’ lives and schedules are overwhelming, high-paced, and filled with all sorts of pressures and expectations. As youth leaders, we can program retreats and camps that can help our students experience the rest for their souls that Jesus promises. In this episode, we are challenged to ask a question, “How can we program and plan our retreats so that they are not a continuation of their already hard-pressed and busy lives, but a true retreat from them?” The goal is for our retreat and camp programming to be intentional so that we all can experience the margin and rest needed.
