2016 Young Adult Retreat Podcasts, Photos, and Evaluation!


It’s hard to believe, but the 2016 Young Adult Retreat has been in the books for over a week now!  God was incredibly faithful, and we hope you who attended experienced the Lord in a powerful way, and experienced genuine community as well.  By way recapping this awesome weekend, we have a few things to share with you…


The 2017 Young Adult Retreat is scheduled for October 27-28 at Wonderland Camp and Conference Center.  We hope to see you there!


Major Rob Birks dissected what it means to be a genuine Christ follower as he taught us about surrender, generosity, and mission. If you want to listen back to those teachings, or weren’t fortunate to be there in person, you can listen to podcasts of those teachings here on our website, or via the iTunes podcast app (just look for the Metro Youth Network podcast).

Session 1 – Major Rob Birks – Surrender

Session 2 – Major Rob Birks – Generosity

Session 3 – Major Rob Birks – Mission

2013 Young Adult Retreat Shirt

Have you signed up for the 2013 Young Adult Retreat? Well, it’s NOT too late to do so. Registration is due on NEXT WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9. Talk to your young adult coordinator(s), youth pastor or Corps Officer to register. It’s that easy. Everyone who comes to the retreat will be getting a sick t-shirt. What t-shirt, you ask? Well, let me tell you:

The number of humans being trafficked worldwide range from about 10 million to 30 million working as slaves inside homes, in agricultural fields, in the sex industry and other places. That’s millions of women, children and men struggling to escape captivity. That’s millions of people wondering what it means or what it would take to be free again.

An Abolitionist is an advocate for the complete abolition of slavery. With it’s mission to help those in need and spead a message that “sets captives free,” The Salvation Army has been an advocate against all forms of slavery since it’s inception in 1865.

Artist M. Brady Clark has designed a beautiful shirt to help raise funding and awareness for The Salvation Army’s fight against Human Trafficking. The Salvation Army’s anti-trafficking efforts focus on: legislative and policy initiatives, awareness raising and training, prevention efforts, as well as the development and provision of trafficking survivor services.

100% of the profits will go to The Salvation Army’s fight against Human Trafficking. Introducing the Abolitionist Tee:
