So here’s the scoop: Eagle Retreat is a weekend getaway for students growing up in ministry households. The event is always Friday evening through Sunday morning as a ministry student-only getaway (parents are encouraged to join the conference for the last session/worship on Sunday morning).
The weekend is lead by “Flight Instructors” who are all grown up ministry kids primarily of the college and career age. The teaching is lead by Pastor Andy Addis (www.andyaddis.com) of CrossPoint Church (www.crosspointnow.net) and worship this year is being lead by Eagle Retreat graduate Noah Addis and company!
The theme for 2019 is L2J: Lead like Jesus and this will be a great time to get away, be encouraged and get ready to lead from your faith in the days to come.
Feel free to contact Mari Jaquith (event director- email) for more information, details, and/or clarifications. Also, spend some time on this site going through previous posts to catch a flavor of the event in video wrap-up style.

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.
