ACF Ontario Western Retreat

Take Christ's Yoke Upon You

Join students from university & college students between Toronto and Windsor for a student weekend retreat of friendship, worship and fellowship! This is one weekend that you don't want to miss. You'll start the school year on the right note by making new friends, building your networks, and developing your spiritual walk with God! The retreat promises to be an incredible, Spirit-filled, and enjoyable weekend as it serves as a spiritual kick-off to the academic school year. We will spend the weekend being encouraged that even when we are tired, burnt out, anxious and stressed, we can bring these burdens to Jesus and leave them at the cross, as found in Matthew 11:28-29. SO don't delay and register while spaces are available!!

Through his personal experience he shares how anyone and everyone can succeed. The one consistent theme throughout all of Samson’s conversations is value in Christ.

Every year, during the fourth week of September, students at public universities and colleges between Toronto and Windsor gather together for a weekend of fellowship, worship and networking. This weekend serves as a spiritual kick-off to the academic school year and is a blessing to those who attend annually. Students spend the weekend examining their purpose for attending school. Students strive to understand that they are at our school for a higher purpose and to make a difference. That getting a degree, making friends, and starting a career is only the beginning of the collegiate experience
