Pennsylvania Youth Ministries Teach “Jesus 360°”
By Kris Eckenroth
More than 380 young recently participated in the first young adult spiritual retreat to be hosted by the Pennsylvania Conference Youth Ministries department in quite a few years. The event was held at Laurel Lake Camp in Rossiter, Pa.
Jennifer Miller, a teacher at the Lehigh Valley school in Whitehall, Pa., first brought up the idea to revitalize the event last summer. Plans were soon made and a theme chosen: “Jesus 360°.” Through the theme, leaders hoped to challenge youth to involve Jesus in every area and direction of his or her lives. Once registration was opened, groups from all across the state started registering. The conference was hoping for at least a hundred to attend, but God thought bigger. More than 90 young people were turned away due to limited space at the camp.
