Many teens are racked by fears of every kind: fear of failure; the future; loneliness and financial instability, to name a few. BTYM invites all teens (ages 13-18) to our weekend retreat from Friday, October 27th to Sunday, October 29th.

This year’s theme is FEARLESS. Our focus will be to encourage our teens to learn practical tools from God’s Word to help them overcome these fears and, with the Holy Spirit’s help, live bold, courageous and fearless lives!
