DEEPER Retreat – The Movement

Ignite your year with a weekend away

Our Deeper Retreat is one of the best ways to meet new friends, have a fresh, deeper encounter with Jesus and be inspired to live your life to the full. By getting away from campus/work for a weekend we hope to help you kick start your year with a fresh focus on how to live your life partnered with the Holy Spirit. You will experience the outdoors, worship, have moments to escape for solitude and prayer, play sports, hike through the woods, play volleyball, basketball, disc golf, mini-golf, a low-ropes course, archery, riflery, axe-throwing. and have a greater understanding of the life Jesus is calling us to live in Ottawa.

For 8 years, Adam, his wife Rachel and their 4 kids served as the Student Ministries Pastor at Community Pentecostal Church in Ottawa.
