You are invited…

…to a retreat for those in their 20s-40s to come together and deepen connections with God and with each other.


February 15 & 16, 2019

Weekend theme

Our weekend theme will look at how a deepening friendship with God changes us on the inside to have the mind of Jesus and be one with Him in our thoughts and actions.

Dr. Minner Labrador, Jr. serves as president of the Upper Columbia Conference. Together with the Upper Columbia Conference team and the guidance of the Holy Spirit he provides spiritual and administrative leadership to the pastors, teachers and membership. His mission is to empower all leaders and members, to grow the church and together prepare for the soon return of Jesus. 



We will be tucked away from the hustle and bustle in the country side, where we can see the rolling Palouse covered with snow and the beauty of the sunset over the horizon. We will be meeting in the main cafeteria. Follow signs when you get there.
