Each year, Camp Tekoa hosts a Youth Pastor Retreat in March!

Join us for fellowship, fun, rest, renewal, good food, and spiritual enrichment.  This is a great opportunity to meet other youth pastors, share, bond, learn, play, and support each other at a retreat with other people doing the same type of ministry as you.  You've planned and led lots of retreats for others.  This retreat is planned just for you!  Come and join us!  

Where: Camp Tekoa in Hendersonville, NC

When: March 18-20, 2024 (Monday evening - Wednesday mid-day)

Who: Youth Pastors of any Christian church or denomination

Cost: The cost to youth pastors is FREE for the 2024 Tekoa Youth Pastor Retreat due to the generosity of kind supporters who appreciate what you do for youth!

What our Retreat Guests Say...

The reason as a youth pastor that I visit Tekoa is because it is a beautiful picture of what we should strive our groups to be.
