Fall Retreat – Oct 30 – Nov 1

Riverbend Retreat Center

About Fall Retreat

Fall Retreat is a 3 day, 2 night event filled with biblical teaching, time away from school, and fun with other students, all in the beautiful Texas Hill country. The cost of the weekend is $60 and includes all your meals. This year we get to hear from Scott Berkey as he teaches us about the Gospel and how it applies to our lives. There will be significant free time for you to enjoy the retreat center including a bonfire, hiking trails, and dinosaur tracks! This year our focus is on RETREAT. Retreat with the Lord and retreat with each other. Given the realities of COVID we will be divided in to smaller groups that you will remain with for the duration of your weekend. We are so excited about he community this will foster. Also due to not having worship as well, we have set aside that time for use to spend extra time with the Lord. So come enjoy a weekend Retreating with God and Retreating with Friends!

Our Speaker

Scott Berkey is the Cru director at the University of Illinois, which is also his alma mater. He is married to his wonderful wife Unchong. He has been on staff for over 20 years. He is passionate about student’s lives being changed by the Gospel and loves seeing lost students turned into Christ-centered laborers.
