Prayer Before Talk

We firmly believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to have an Encounter with Jesus Christ for He is the way, the truth, and the life. He is the solution to the struggles we all experience in our lives. Because of this conviction, we have spent the past 20 years refining our Retreat Ministry to bring Christ to the youth of Canada in the most effective and efficient way possible.

Since God is a relational being, we are all created to be in relationship with Him. Once we understand this truth in our hearts, our lives are forever changed because we realize that He is not the unloving, distant Being that we imagined him to be. Rather, He is Love, and from this love, he desires to be in a personal relationship with us. At NET, we personally give testament to this beautiful reality for we too have seen the change God has done in our own lives.

As a result, if we desire for youth to understand this foundation truth about God, that He is a relational being, it is of utmost importance that this truth permeates every aspect of our ministry. In fact, it is the cornerstone, the foundation, to everything we do on a retreat. The leadership activities, skits, talks, music, small groups, games and personal faith testimonies all aim to prepare each young person to encounter Christ in a personal way during the prayer time that happens near the end of the day.
