Discovery - a retreat for high school students exploring ministry

March 16-18, 2018

Camp Wesley Woods, Townsend, TN


 Ministry can look many different ways. Do you feel called to be a pastor in a church? A youth minister? A worship leader? A music minister? Children's minister? A missionary? Older adult minister? The possibilities are endless! In the United Methodist Church you can choose to be ordained or to be a lay person in ministry.  Holston Conference knows that your calling is a big deal and we want to support you along way! 

Discovery is a weekend retreat to help you explore that calling.  Throughout the weekend you will hear from people in various aspects of ministry and have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more.  There will also be time spent in worship to listen to what God is saying to you.  


Regular by February 28- $100

Late by March 7- $125
