For more than 10 years, Grace College and Seminary has participated in the Kalahari Winter Youth Retreat in Sandusky, Ohio. On January 22-24, Grace admissions counselors will carry on the tradition and represent Grace to prospective students at this fun winter event.
Kalahari Retreat Center provides the backdrop for this annual, Grace Brethren-affiliated youth event. According to Kalahari Winter Retreat’s co-director Jeff Walter, the retreat was established in 2006. It initially accommodated only a few Grace Brethren churches and around 300 participants. Now, 10 years later, over 300 youth leaders and 2,000 students attend. Each retreat hosts nationally-known speakers and bands. This year, David Nasser, director of David Nasser Outreach, will speak.
Grace College uses the Kalahari retreat to reach out and inform high school students about the opportunities Grace offers. “It’s crucial to network and connect with Grace Brethren students, youth pastors and churches,” said Mark Pohl, Director of Admissions. “Each year, we also look forward to connecting with students from other churches.”
