SpiritSpark, the RMC Fall Retreat for Middle School and High School students on October 24-26, is a prime experience for Radical Connection! When we gather as conference youth, we see beyond ourselves and realize just how present God's Spirit is in our churches, in our retreats, in our lives. Outdoor Ministry augments the movement of the Spirit in our churches because it opens our youth to creation, to Christian community, to sacred space, to a new way of seeing God. When we see God anew, we begin to look for God and even more importantly, we begin to trust that God will reveal Godself to us when we have ears to hear and eyes to see.

Our pattern is to follow the rhythm of the day so that we begin and end in silence--not a silence of anger or obligation…but a silence that celebrates a Mystery beyond. In between the silence is sharing, swimming, labyrinth walking, and much, much laughter as we seek to practice the presence of God.

MADD Camp 2014: Entering Grades 9-12

Date: Sunday July 20 – Saturday, July 26, 2014

Directors: Cory Kibler & Kelly Jo Clark

Fee: $525

Our theory at MADD is that we can get in touch with God through using the arts. Although we do engage the youth in intellectual faith conversations, we also attempt to get them “out of their heads” and into experiencing the transcendent. We find these moments to be the most powerful in helping the young people to develop a lifelong faith.
