09 Oct Middle School’s Mountain Madness Retreat
Middle school students are invited to Mountain Madness, February 16 – 18, 2017 at the YMCA of the Rockies Estes Park.
Join Youth Director, Summer Swisher, and 1000+ middle school students at Mountain Madness to encounter God through a “mountain-top” experience. Each year we bring in a speaker/entertainer to host the weekend – this year we will be joined by Apex Ministries. The high energy speakers, dynamic worship, fellowship and adoration help ignite a passion for Jesus in the young people which encourages them to live their faith in everyday life.
The theme of the retreat is Saints Among Us – The Real Superheroes.
We will take time to reflect on the extraordinary lives of the saints. The faith and devotion of the saints of yesterday encourage us to become the saints of today! The keynote speakers are APeX Ministries. APeX Ministries (aka Gene and Brad) is an internationally known comedy duo based out of Brooklyn, NY and Aurora , CO. Since 1996, they have traveled North America using a style they define as Christian Vaudeville. This includes death defying juggling, sketch comedy, and personal testimony. In other words, they are evangelists, they throw things at each other, and they are funny. Gene hopes one day to compete in the Olympics as a solo synchronized swimmer. Brad is very strong!
The cost for the weekend is $145 per student and includes conference materials, lodging with 5 meals, and a t-shirt.
