Snow at Lake Junaluska

March 18-20, 2011
Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center will host the 4th annual Ebony Youth Christian Vocation Exploration Retreat, March 18-20, 2011. African-American youth, grades 9-12, will have the opportunity to explore Christian vocations and God's call on their lives during this intentional spiritual formation weekend. Students who attend the retreat will experience fellowship with other African-American youth of their faith. They will also discover their spiritual gifts, engage in spirit-filled worship, and take part in a mentoring relationship - all while they discover, explore, and celebrate a call to ministry.

Church leaders are encouraged to share information about the conference with youth who they feel are being called into ministry or who have expressed the desire to go into ministry. The registration fee for the conference is $90 per person and those interested are asked to submit an application by January 8, 2011.
