BTYM (Youth Ministry)
October 19th — 21st, 2018
Multi-day Event
  • Pinebrook Bible Conference & Retreat Center


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 19th, to Sunday, October 21st, 2018.

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