Reflections from 2020 spring youth retreat
I want to talk about the 2020 Spring retreat. There should be more retreats like the spring retreat and the fall Kansas Disciples Youth Convention in Hutchinson. It was a good experience and I enjoyed learning with other youth from around Kansas about the love of God and Christ. I think that Rob Tulloch was amazing and very fun. The way he preaches is very powerful and I really enjoyed listening to him talk during the keynote sections.
The retreats are good because not all kids get the chance to attend summer church camp due to money, sports, or anything else for that matter. I would like more service projects for us to do around the camp because it is fun to help clean the camp to make it the beautiful, heavenly place it is.
I think the retreats should be longer, because the more we kids get introduced to sports and other activities, the less we get to spend time with God. My overall experience was very fun and exciting, and I made a few new friends.
So please consider having more, longer retreats so more kids get to experience the enjoyment that I got to experience.

I’m delighted to hear such mature and encouraging words from one of our young people. This highlights the profound impact that the camping program and retreat ministries have had and continue to have on the youth of our denomination.
I am personally honored to receive such high praise and enjoyed the opportunity to bring good news to that sacred space. Thank you, Jonas for the kind words and I look forward to watching you grow and lead with your peers here in Kansas.
