One Life Logo-01One Life strives to call students to out of the ordinary to live “one life” of extra-ordinary devotion to Christ through shared experiences in solid programming, challenging speakers, and meaningful worship. To help students find strength and renewal of faith on a spiritual peak, and develop a rhythm of faith that sustains them when they are not in those high places.   In every way OneLife retreats strive to encourage students to live further into their calling to whom God has made them to be and go home affecting their communities for the cause of Christ.
