Renewal 2021 (previously named Rebound)

Register HERE!

A gathering of youth leaders and spouses aimed at sustaining them in faithful and fruitful ministry for the long haul.

Clearwater Beach, Florida

Renewal is a four-day retreat designed for EFCA youth workers and their spouses to get away to reconnect with God, one another, their calling and their identity. While this retreat is designed for youth workers and their spouses, all EFCA youth workers are welcome. The worship gatherings, schedule and environment are all designed to facilitate these “renewal reconnections.” Our desire is to encourage long-term, healthy student ministries by ministering to the youth workers.

In our sessions, you will experience prayer, worship and the opportunity to interact and minister with and to one another. Our speaker will focus on speaking life into your soul. This is not a training conference. It is a renewal conference. The wisest man to ever live, King Solomon, spoke these words to his son in Proverbs 4:23: “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” There are times the wisest and most responsible thing we can do for our own souls and ministries is to focus some deliberate attention on our hearts.

Your afternoons are free to lay by the pool, sight-see, have lunch with new friends or simply reflect and rest.

Chris Brown

We get the privilege of having the beloved Chris Brown, a 2014 Rebound speaker, back with us this year!

Chris Brown has served as a Senior Pastor and Teaching Pastor at North Coast Church since 2004. Prior to that, he developed a nationally recognized student ministry at Azusa Pacific College, where he served as the Campus Pastor. His mid-week Bible study known as “911” started with 80 and grew to over 1,500 students.

A gifted story teller and Bible Teacher, Chris is a sought-after conference and chapel speaker. His humor and motivational style have helped North Coast Church continue to grow, not only larger, but also younger during his tenure. He shares the weekend pulpit with Larry Osborne – each teaching roughly half the time.

Chris is a graduate of Azusa Pacific University. He lives in Oceanside with his wife Amy and their three children.
