We have no words to describe what God did through the worship and preaching of His word this last retreat.. Watch the Be Lifted High Worship Video to get a small glimpse! 


There is nothing better than to refocus on what is most important and to encounter Jesus with His people in the mountains. We are very excited to announce this year's winter retreat at Cedar Lake Camp near Big Bear Lake. Cedar Lake is definitely a premier facility for summer retreat, we’ve tried for four years straight to get in but they’ve been booked!! As the name states, Cedar Lake is built around it’s own beautiful private lake where we can kayak and swim, there are cozy dorm style lodging, there’s also a beautiful grand chapel in which we’ll host our sessions. But we know that the best part of the weekend will be what we believe God will do—what we’ve seen God do year in and year out at these retreats: move in hearts and glorify Himself in a powerful way!




This is a twice in a year opportunity to be enveloped into the love God has been building in this community of young people. There are countless friendships between students, and mentoring relationships formed and developed at our retreats. Whether somebody is new in this ministry, or have been around for a while, these retreats are designed to boost each student's connection to others & most importantly Jesus.




There is nothing like worshipping in the presence of the Lord with a hundred of your friends in the mountains. Year after year, we are awestruck at the authentic and raw works of God we experience together.  There are lights on display, and songs we know well, but what outshines all of this is what the Holy Spirit does in our hearts. We've had some amazingly fun retreats these past few years, but every time it's the worship we go raving on about. 




These are the times where we see so many lives changed, hearts healed, guilt washed away, and souls saved.  Whether we know it or not, God seems to always deliver exactly what we need with pinpoint accuracy. Jesus said, "The truth shall set you free" and we have seen this truth performed before our very eyes time and time again. This year Pastor Josh Terada along with Pastor Darrell Chambers will be sharing from the Word of God. In the mornings we will study in on why we believe in what we believe about Jesus by finding answers hard questions like "How do we know the Bible is from God?", "Why is Jesus the only way to heaven?", and "why do bad things happen to good people". In the evenings, we will respond to what God says with our hearts, as we focus on the promises and call of God to experience and fulfill all that God has for us.
