Texas Young Adult Retreat - February 10-12

Gather with young adults from like-minded churches all over Texas for this encouraging weekend of rest and renewal in the Gospel of Jesus.


LOCATION – THE RETREAT AT BALCONES SPRINGS

Located between Austin and Marble Falls, The Retreat was designed to be a place of rest and renewal. It has a Texas Hill Country feel, designed with warm hospitality in mind. The food, lodging, and amenities are excellent. It is an ideal place to unplug and be renewed.

SPEAKER – DOUG SERVEN

Before planting City Pres in 2011, Doug was the RUF Campus Minister at OU for 10 years. Doug is an author, a board game geek, a cross-fitter, and a tortured fan of the OKC thunder. Doug and his wife Julie have four kids. To find out more about Doug and City Pres, check out citypresokc.com.

TOPIC – THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST

"When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel." Ephesians 3

While we can (and should) focus on our theology, our union with Christ has cultural, sociological and personal implications. These are theological as well. We'll look at the Jesus way for friendship and marriage, racial reconciliation, and a gospel-centered care for others, especially those not quite like us.
