What Leaders Are Saying About JOURNEY!

  • unwind, bond and act like kids

    I especially enjoyed spending time with the kids in an environment meant for them to unwind, bond, and act like kids.  It was invigorating to spend quality time with them and seeing them enjoy being outdoors and with each other! - Lisa: Parent Chaperone

    The staff were incredible and made the experience awesome for our leaders.  The schedule ran so smoothly, thing s were clearly communicated.  I loved it!  Everything about it was wonderful! 

    - Adult Leader

    The meals were great and we loved eating family style.  I'm thankful for the free time the kids had.  It was really a fantastic experience! - Angela: Adult Chaperone

  • Marko

    He's a dynamic speaker, high energy, funny, engaging, knows his audience well, and an incredible storyteller.  I loved the overall theme and the stories from scripture he used.  His genuine love and passion for the gospel was so evident, clearly articulated, and approachable.  The cabin time questions were great and led to awesome discussions.

    He was beyond awesome!!  his message was not only relevant for teenagers but for everyone!  What a gifted teacher & hilarious! - Sara: Youth Leader

    I loved having this time for the adult leaders (with Marko).  Marko was great -- lots of good info and such a humble approach to all of it! - Adult Leader

    Spot-on middle school level.  I can't imagine any better! Students actually wanted to attend program time.

    Your (JOURNEY) Staff are excellent!  Their love of God and middle school youth is impressive.  The college students that God brings to you make all the difference!

  • Atmosphere for worship

    I have heard a number of worship bands, but these guys were by far the best.  They were extremely talented musicians and they created a great atmosphere for worship. 

    - Kate: Youth Director

    The music was very good.  Relinquish set a great tone for the retreat, helping the kids open up to God's message.
