“God really used fall retreat to remind me of how great he is. It was nice to be away from the city for a while and just enjoy God’s presence. I also really enjoyed getting to spend a weekend with everyone and build stronger friendships.” —Columbia freshman
“He changed my perspective on relationships, and increased my desire to know Jesus as God. He helped form new friendships and fellowship with people from my campus.” —Elmhurst freshman
“It was a turning point for me. Saw things from a new perspective.” —UIC grad student
“I shared my testimony for the first time in a large public space and it was amazing. God really showed me how far he has brought me and I’m incredibly grateful how he has used fall retreat over my four years.” —Columbia senior
“Fall retreat reiterated the power and importance of the gospel in my life and in all I do!” —DePaul senior
Our students can say it better than me; God used fall retreat in tremendous ways to impact their lives. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve these incredible students and help plan a retreat for them to experience the Lord so richly.
Thank you for your continuous prayers and support in my journey of ministry in Chicago.
