COME SHARE YOUR STORY.

The Voyage Retreat is a gathering for LGBTQIA Young Adults to enjoy an open and affirming faith community.

Join us for a weekend full of community, exploration, and storytelling as we dive into learning to look for Jesus in the midst of hard times. As we reflect back on one of the worst years of our generation, it can feel impossible to grasp onto hope. But if there’s one thing that we know to be true, it’s that we’re not alone in it. The key is learning how to steady the course, follow the light, and trust in Jesus.

We can't wait to set sail with you.

INFORMATION

This year’s retreat is about the journey through rough waters and dark skies; but most importantly, how to find Christ in the midst of it.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, we will be holding this year’s retreat virtually! As much as we long to meet in person, we’re excited to open up the opportunity for those not located in the SoCal area to come share in community!

REGISTRATION: $30

Includes program registration & merch package

(Scholarships are available) 

Registration deadline is March 14th

All people are sacred. All stories are powerful. The Voyage Retreat is a space dedicated to the encouragement of spiritual growth and healing through community - whether that be through music & art, games, stories, laughs or cries; we want to gather with you. You'll find yourself surrounded by new friends, your spirit refreshed, and taken into a holy space of true acceptance and celebration of all lives.

The Voyage Retreat is a project of The Voyage Meetup, collaboration between the One Frontier & Rev. Bailey Brawner of Mission Hills United Methodist Church. To learn more about the SoCal meetup and the community-driven goal of the Voyage, click here.

ALL ARE WELCOME HERE.
