Young Adult Retreat

March 23-25, 2018

Ages 18-29 year old (Married or single)

 

OVERVIEW

We are starting to redefine Christianity.

We are giving in to the dangerous temptation to take the Jesus of the Bible and twist him into a version of Jesus we are more comfortable with. A Jesus who doesn’t mind materialism and who would never call us to give away everything we have. A Jesus who is fine with nominal devotion that does not infringe on our comforts, because, after all, He loves us just the way we are. A Jesus who wants us to be balanced, and who, for that matter, wants us to avoid danger altogether. A Jesus who brings us comfort and prosperity as we live out our Christian spin on the American dream.

We are molding Jesus into our image. He is beginning to look a lot like us because,  that is whom we are most comfortable with. And the danger now is that when we gather in our church buildings to sing and lift up our hands in worship, we may not actually be worshiping the Jesus of the Bible. Instead we may be worshiping ourselves.

This brings us to crucial questions for every professing or potential follower of Jesus: Do we really believe He is worth abandoning everything for? Do you and I really believe that Jesus is so good, so satisfying and so rewarding that we will leave all we have and all we own and all we are in order to find our fullness in Him? Do you and I believe Him enough to obey Him and to follow Him wherever He leads?

(Excerpt from RADICAL written by David Platt)

Guests Speaker/Worship Leaders

Jared and Mary Beth Dragoun have been married for 15 years and have always been at home in local church ministry—in Nashville, Bakersfield, and now Los Angeles. They have been involved in various church leadership roles, served in countless worship teams, and taught the Bible in settings both large and small. Their favorite type of ministry happens together around the dinner table, and they are passionate about seeing Christians live out their faith honestly and fervently over everyday life activities. They especially love sharing the good news about Jesus Christ with those who have major misconceptions about who Jesus is and what following Him may look like. Though they have no biological children, their house is always full of young-adult-“kids”, not to mention their two dogs (Calvin and Izzy). They currently live in North Hollywood, CA as leaders of a small, home-based church in the NoHo Arts District.
