2018 State Retreat – Pure Gold


November 9-11 | MainStay Suites | Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
It’s a dirty world! This fall, clean it up as you learn to be “Pure Gold” for God. The 2018 Tennessee State Youth Retreat challenges us to honor God with our bodies, renew our minds with things that are good, turn our eyes from worthless things, and to guard our hearts above all else. Featured speaker Neil Gilliland  and others will share great advice for standing strong and refusing to give in to the pressures and temptations of the culture. And, for those who have already given in to the pressures of a dirty world, learn how to start new and fresh through God’s grace.
Join hundreds of students and sponsors from Tennessee and surrounding states  November 9-11, 2018. Take advantage of all Pigeon Forge has to offer, from hiking in the Smoky Mountains to shopping, to the “fastest in Pigeon Forge” go-kart track two blocks from the retreat hotel.
Don’t miss this opportunity to refresh, renew, and be refined into God’s “Pure Gold.”
This year’s retreat music will be led by Ryan Lewis, worship leader at Cofer’s Chapel FWB Church in Nashville, Tennessee.
