A retreat with a NET Team will give your youth an opportunity to hear about, respond to and live for Jesus Christ.

Retreat Ministry

Connecting with youth about their faith can be difficult.

Many young people lose their faith by the time they leave high school.

Many educators & youth ministers struggle to transmit the gospel in a way that gets to the heart.

What it looks like

A NET Retreat led by a team of our vibrant young adult missionaries can effectively offer your young people a simple, clear message of God’s love and a chance to experience the Gospel personally. We work with you to reach many youth in a short time and build momentum for your local youth ministry. Effective. Convenient. Flexible.

6-10 dynamic young adults who can easily relate to young people

5 retreat themes to choose from

Small group discussions, games and activities, and live testimony presentations
