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.

    Theme & Speaker

    One Life Logo-01 2020 Theme: Greater Things

    John 14:12

    “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these…”

    Thesis: In the Upper Room, Jesus laid out a vision of life for his disciples.  He told them that “no servant is greater than their master” establishing his Lordship, he reminded them that they ought to “remain” and “abide” in his Love as the central guiding force,  and he assured them that they would still do “greater things” than these. So we hold this in tension in a life of faith, we are not greater than Jesus our master, but yet we are made for greater things.  

    Our hope for Students: We desire for our students to know Jesus as their guiding light and central influence, and for them to be empowered that no matter our age, experience, or what others say or think about us, we can’t underestimate our ability to have genuine faith and to set an example to others.  Simply stated, to follow Jesus as only we can, we must not let the voice of fear be louder than the voice of faith. Students, for the most part, have no problem standing strong in their day to day lives, with sports, school, and friends, but when it comes to their faith, it seems they are not sure of their place within the church. They don’t believe they have a voice or means to be able to lead.  With the theme of “Greater Things,” we hope they will claim this identity and the truth that they are made to lead in unique and excellent ways.
