Student leaders are the heart & soul of FC Students. This event is for high school students (9th-12th grade) to grow in their leadership as disciples of Jesus.

What To Expect

Heart & Soul Retreat is a three-day, two-night retreat where we will focus on developing student leaders. We will have worship experiences, designated prayer time, and leadership conversations throughout the weekend. We will also have plenty of recreational activities like paintball, rock climbing, high ropes course, hiking, and other outdoor games. Come prepared in clothing you don't mind getting dirty, and be prepared for all weather conditions.
