Getting ready for Eagle Retreat 2018

For those alumni welcome back and for all those who will be joining us for the first time… get ready to fly!

Eagle Retreat is a three day getaway retreat for students growing up in ministry households. This one of a kind event can really make a difference for the whole family. Friday through Sunday, everything we do is catered to meet the unique needs of these students in their 7th-12th grade school years.

Sunday morning we ask the parents to join us for a final session (worship) and debrief of the weekend. It’s worth every minute.

This year’s theme is Fighting (for the) Family. We will be exploring how to fight, how to confess and how to forgive. This has potential to be can epic year.

Make plans now to not only be a part of Eagle Retreat, but to take your family life to the next level… this changes everything. To register go to “Eagle Retreat 2018” page in the navigation bar above.

We’ll be posting more information as the time draws closer, but if you have any questions about retreat content contact Pastor Andy Addis (email), or for questions about retreat logistics you can ask Mari Parker (email).

Can’t wait to see you at Eagle Retreat 2018: Fighting (for the) Family.

PARENTS, don’t miss this

As the 2013 Eagle Retreat is quickly approaching, just a quick reminder for moms and dads.

We all know there is a full slate of programs for students and that this is a powerful weekend getaway. But, there are 2 very important things that often get overlooked with regard to parents:

  1. There is a parent track, separate and distinct from everything the students do. It is a wonderful getaway, a highly valued training time and an amazing opportunity to fellowship with other moms and dads in ministry.
  2. !VERY IMPORTANT! Even if you can’t make the parent track, all parents are invited to a joint gathering between the parent and student track on Sunday morning. At 10:15 AM, there is a special weekend breakdown for parents only with the conference teachers and leaders. This is huge insight into the minds of your very on PKs. Then, join the retreat for worship at 11 am and lunch to follow.

There are some amazing opportunities for you as parents at this year’s Eagle Retreat and without a doubt… it will be worth your time. All you have to do is be there!


2013 Eagle Retreat T-shirts are being ordered tomorrow (March 7) so we need to get your registration in and/or let Mari know what size you want.

She’d also appreciate random phone calls through out the day… Maybe…

Shake it up!

Got this news for Eagle Retreaters 2013 from our Hootenanny coordinator! Read and be prepared:

I was placed in charge of planning an event for the Hootenanny at ER this year. After some chatting with Mari and Tmac, we thought it would be fun to have our very own ER Harlem Shake video. Jason is going to bring his recording equipment and we will plan on getting our shake on during the Hootenanny time. We are going to call it the “ER Shake.” Would you be able to put up some kind of information regarding this on the website? The main reason for advertising it on the website would be so the students can bring any kind of crazy outfits/props they would like to wear while filming the video – could you do this for us?

This will be fun!
