Building Youth Groups (BYG)

January 25 - January 27
byg, building youth groups, winter retreat, youth group

BYG is a fun filled weekend designed to help your youth group grow together in community and faith.

It doesn’t matter what size your youth group is, BYG is just right for building faith that sticks with your crew (click here to see research on sticky faith). This weekend is designed especially for Middle School youth groups (6th-9th grade) to dream, plan, talk, learn, grow, reflect and have fun together!

Bring your 6th-9th graders to Lutherhaven for BYG, a fun community-building camp experience.
Our BYG weekend includes youth groups from several churches. Whether you have three or thirty, your group will have fun interacting with others during our winter camp activities.

The goal of the weekend is to help youth groups grow together though:

  • Fun games and experiences (plus, fingers crossed…snow fun!)
  • Worship, teaching, devotions, and prayer
  • Small group discussions facilitated by our speaker

Pastor Matt is a sinner who is deeply appreciative of Jesus. He is the father of Paul, husband to Natalie, and has been Pastor of Concordia Lutheran in Pullman, WA since August 2017. He roots for the Cougars, laughs at the Huskies, and believes that Jesus calls us all to be friends. He also really loves lawn care. Matt believes the most important thing in the world is the good news that Jesus gives us life.
