Camp Cedar Crest in Running Springs
We believe Scripture invites us to set aside a safe and quite place to pray, contemplate, and respond to the Word of God. For that reason, each year we create a retreat where students are guided into a space of intentional spiritual reflection, direction, and development in the context of community.
We believe that while ultimately spiritual growth is the responsibility of the Holy Spirit in partnership with a believer, individual spiritual formation largely takes place when a believer is charged with the transmission of their faith in word and deed. Therefore, we intentionally seek to create as many opportunities where our students are encouraged to live out their faith authentically in their everyday spaces and conversations.
Attempting to cultivate an environment like this requires a significant amount of prayer and preparation. Student leaders must be identified, equipped, and empowered to do the work of the saints. Adult leaders must stay proactive, engaged, and discerning as they minister to the student leaders. And ultimately, all involved must maintain constant communication with the Father and His guiding Spirit.
Join us in prayer as we seek to live the LIFE He has already prepared in advance for us. Pray specifically for the following:
- The prevenient grace of God to stir the hearts of all attending
- The Spirit of authentic celebration, hospitality, and gratitude to be present
- God’s protection and provision in all activities and conversations
- All glory to God
