For who is God besides the Lord?

And who is the Rock except our God?

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.

- 2 SAMUEL 22:32-33 -

SURE, DAVID BECAME A GREAT KING, BUT HE DIDN'T START OUT AS ANYTHING SPECIAL. WHAT MADE HIS LIFE GREAT WAS HIS OPENNESS TO THE LORD AND HIS 'YES' RESPONSE TO THE GREATER PURPOSE OF GOD FOR HIS LIFE.

WHAT PURPOSE DOES GOD HAVE FOR YOUR LIFE?

THE POWER OF GOD TOOK THE OFFERING OF A SHEPHERD BOY AND BROUGHT DOWN A GIANT WARRIOR. DAVID KNEW THAT THE BATTLE BELONGED TO THE LORD! HIS POWER IS BEYOND COMPARE AND LIVES ON THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THE POWER OF GOD?

THE PROMISE OF GOD is everlasting. even when david's sin GOT IN THE WAY, the lord showED mercy AND OFFERED REDEMPTION. HE CONTINUES TO FULFILL HIS GREAT PROMISES DESPITE OUR WEAKNESS.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD'S PROMISE FOR YOU?

DAVID'S PRAYERS, SONGS AND DISPLAYS OF praise and thanksgiving ARE REFERENCED THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURES. HE EVEN COMPOSED 70+ OF THE PSALMS WHICH WE USE IN OUR PRAYERS TO THIS DAY!

WILL YOU PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL THAT HE IS AND DOES?

WILL YOU BE 17 AT YES?

we NEED you!

What is an influencer?

Don't worry - we're not talking about TikTok trends and sponsored posts, but about what it really means to have the power to influence your environment! Influencers take some responsibility for the vibes, they lead by example and they put effort into relationships, exploring faith and encouraging others. They listen, they contribute and they serve in the way Jesus teaches us.

What will it look like?

The main job of influencers is to participate. So, regardless of your experience, it looks like any YES Retreat - you come along with your youth group and enjoy the weekend! All influencers will also have a special dinner together on Friday where you'll be assigned one service for the retreat. These are small services that are a big help - you could be serving snacks during a break, running a station in the wide game, or leading a prayer before a meal...there are many areas of service and one common theme - it's a simple offering of service to influence the greater culture of the YES Retreat. We hope you'll experience God in a new way through this programme and we are excited to work together in so many different ways to glorify God!
