The Wilds College and Career Retreats


It’s often difficult to be godly in our world today, especially as a young adult. With temptation constantly lurking, we often need a time for recuperating. The Wilds provides a wonderful weekend for college students and professionals to enjoy great times while being refocused spiritually. At this retreat, you will be enlightened with God’s Word and encouraged by friends and enjoyable activities.

Fall Retreat Speaker

Previously he was an associate pastor in Tennessee, and for 12 years, served on The Wilds staff assisting in preaching, counseling, music, and directing the CIT program.
