Christ, Who Is Our Life

It’s hard to believe that we are starting our third full year of Young Adult Retreats here at Peniel Bible Camp. That time is upon us, though, and we are greatly anticipating what another year will hold. Our spring date is quickly approaching, so the CORE Young Adult Ministry of Westerville Bible Church would like to invite you to attend the Young Adult Retreat on May 12-13.

Our theme this year is “Christ, Who Is Our Life.” What a great topic for all of us to consider anew! This focus will be sure to challenge believers of all maturity levels as well as those who have not yet committed their lives to Christ. So, be sure to make plans to attend and invite others to join you. We are praying that this retreat will refresh you as you enjoy time and fun together but also renew you in your daily duty to deny yourself and follow Christ.

Our Speaker: Andy Gleiser

For 13 years Andy served as the Student Ministries Pastor at Burge Terrace Baptist Church in Indianapolis. Then in August 2014, Burge Terrace prayed over and then sent him and his family out to preach the gospel in evangelistic ministry.

Andy has been married to Bryn since June 2001 and has journeyed in life and ministry together ever since. God has blessed them with 3 children.

A consistent theme across Andy’s preaching and teaching is helping people learn, live, and give the gospel of Jesus Christ entirely by God’s grace.

In addition to preaching the gospel, Andy enjoys writing new hymns for the church that exalt Christ and His cross. Outside of his family and preaching, Andy’s passion is baseball. He is devoted to his Kansas City Royals.

What to Expect

The retreat will be held at Peniel Bible Camp. You will be staying in cabins with other young adults. If you would like to request to stay with someone in particular, please let us know when you register. Feel free to dress casually, but please dress modestly and appropriately so as not to detract from the goal of the weekend.

What to Bring

The cost is $30 which includes overnight accommodations and three meals. Bring your Bible, notebook, bedding, toiletries, appropriate clothing for both the weather and recreation, and money (if you would like something from the Snack Shop or Store).


Registration begins at 6:00 PM on Friday with dinner at 7:00 PM. Approximate departure is around 4:00 PM on Saturday.
