Jesus wants to revive our hearts!

“Plead my cause and redeem me; 
Revive me according to Thy word."

{ Psalm 119:154 }

Focus School Retreat

Jesus wants to revive our hearts.

This 2017-18 school year the dynamic Pure Witness Retreat Team will inspire thousands of youth across Western Canada with the invitation to allow Jesus Christ to revive their hearts and to discover true purpose and meaning in life.  Everyone is searching for happiness, yet so many are just getting by in life.

Jesus alone can satisfy the longings of our hearts.  His grace is enough to fulfill our every need.

Revive Retreats are an invitation for youth to get to know Jesus in a very personal way.  Through the witness of missionaries, students are  invited to have a personal relationship with Jesus.  He is relevant to our lives; in fact, knowing Him helps us discover the meaning in life.  He cares about everything we are going through.  He takes us outside of ourselves and helps us to discover the mission of a life filled with love.  When we live our lives with purpose we make the world a better place.

Real role models of faith sharing their real journeys with real kids!

Why have Pure Witness Ministries put on a Focus Retreat for your school?

Just imagine a team of dynamic, pure-living, young adults coming into your school with the message for your students: “We’re living for Christ! It’s made a difference in our lives! You can do it, too!” These are impressive role models of faith for your students who relate to youth in a special way!

We learn best through the “witness” of others. Our Pure Witness Team members have dedicated a year of their lives to bring the message of Christ’s love, hope and purity to youth so that they can be encouraged to be all God created them to be.

What happens at a Focus Retreat?

It is a fun-filled time with games, inspiring talks and testimonies, funny skits and inspiring dramas, small-group discussions (where space permits), uplifting music, and an opportunity for your students to interact with an awesome team of young adults who have dedicated a year of their lives to bring the message of Jesus’ love to them!

Faith Comes Alive with Dramas

Storytelling is a dynamic way to connect youth to the message of the Gospel.  Each year the Pure Witness Team brings a new drama production ... inspiring students to encounter Christ themselves through the story of heroic men and women of faith.

“God helped open up my perspective on the world showing me how there’s another part of my life, my faith, which I’ve been shutting myself out from.  I realized on this retreat that I should reconnect myself with God.”

— Grade 11 Student

“The Pure Witness Team is an amazing group of talented, young, energetic individuals who totally live their faith!  All our students from kindergarten to grade 8 were engaged, as well as inspired by our two days spent together.  What an awesome balance of fun and spirituality.  Many thanks!”
