Next Level College Retreat

20 years ago, as a UW football player, Aaron attended a college winter retreat in Estes Park Colorado with around 25 other athletes from Wyoming and CSU.  This retreat, in partnership with Colorado FCA and Athletes in Action, has grown with 41 students from the University of Wyoming attending this year, along with over 150 participants from other Front Range Schools, including CSU, Air Force, Colorado School of Mines and even Chaderon.  Students make the trek to a scenic mountain resort town, for a weekend of spiritual challenge and encouragement, fellowship, competition, worship and laughter.  These students, from a wide variety of spiritual backgrounds, were challenged to move to the Next Level in their spiritual growth, regardless of where they came in.  The students who attended from UW ranged from mature believers, to those who are just checking things out and dipping their toe into spiritual waters.  We were blessed this year, with an outstanding pastor and communicator, Jeff Schwarzentraub of BRAVE church in Denver, CO, who clearly and dynamically presented the gospel as well as a spiritual challenge centered around Matt. 7.  Not only did those in attendance receive solid biblical exhortation, but they enjoyed worship with Run51, small group discussions, break out sessions on various topics, some heated dodgeball competition, time to explore Estes, and some gnarly cafeteria food.  Several student athletes from UW made a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior, for the first time, and we are excited to see the fruit of the Holy Spirit at work in their lives.  Please pray the seeds of the gospel that were sewn, would develop deep roots and produce much fruit as they grow in their knowledge of what the Christian walk and call entails.
