The Lord has dealt with us for some time concerning a certain age group in our holiness churches - the unmarried young adults. Some would say they are the college and career group of the church - many of them are in college or are beginning their careers at this time in their life. They are no longer part of the youth group and are too old to go as campers to youth camps and youth retreats; therefore many of them struggle because they miss the strength, and support that they found there. This group is getting hit with the hardships and realities of life, while many of them, socially, are falling through the cracks - just trying to find their place.
We have a burden for this group and we feel that they are one of the most important age groups in the church because they bridge the gap between the zeal of the youth and the wisdom of the aged. They are unmarried and therefore available to work for God in ways that those who are burdened with the responsibilities of marriage cannot. (1 Corinthians 7:32-33)
We have decided to take on the task of putting together a retreat for this age group which will be held in Branson, Missouri on January 2nd – 4th. This is not a singles conference. It is a retreat where Unmarried Young Adults can come and be refreshed by healthy fellowship, challenged by preaching and teaching of God’s Word, and encouraged and strengthened by the Spirit of the Lord. Our desire is that this vital age group is impacted by this meeting, in such a way, that they will go back home to their churches and be an impact themselves. We ask that you would join us in prayer for this meeting, that God would touch the hearts of those who attend and make them strong spiritual leaders of this upcoming generation.
