Carpe Diem

What's Carpe Diem?

Every year we gather together as a ministry to talk about what it means to put Christ first in our lives. At this retreat, you’ll experience great moments of worship through singing, challenging messages, and faith-building workshops taught by other students. Carpe Diem is also a great place to get connected in the Student Nation, to make new friends, and to take your existing relationships to the next level. This is a place for Christ-followers to grow spiritually with God and others.

What's awesome this year?

  • Intense worship by We Are One band.
  • Awesome messages from the annointed Pastor Dave Krist.
  • Crazy large group team games like Archery Tag, Strobelight Dodgeball, 9-Square-In-The-Air, Broomball on Ice, Snowthrow Smackdown, and some so insane we're keeping them secret!
  • A great time to get away and focus 2014 on the things that really matter.
  • Intimate small group times led by great Youth Workers.
  • Now 3 days and 2 nights at Michindoh for the same price!
  • We're ending the trip at the WinterJam concert at the Joe Louis Arena. Featuring Lecrae, Newsboys, and Tenth Avenue North this rad concert is included in admission.
