August is about to end, September is just around the corner, and while winter feels far away, some of you are asking what’s happening with Avalanche and Blizzard. Good news! Avalanche and Blizzard are still on!

Imaginative Justice

Justice. What is it and how do we approach discussions about it  in the context of immigration, gun violence and other areas we hear every day in the news. The topic of biblical justice is huge...how do we prepare for conversations about that? The Canadian Baptist Youth team have ideas to get your conversation about justice started. In 2016, the CB Youth team released the Imaginative Hope report, which outlines

Almost 500 jr. high students and leaders converged on Muskoka Woods this past weekend for our 18th Avalanche retreat. While everything didn't always go according to plan, here were some key highlights: Our Friday night began with a "bang" (see the end of the video to the right). Students were challenged with key life questions like, "Do they want to pursue Jesus as their greatest hope?" and "How will

Now's the Time So often, the Christian faith is portrayed as future-oriented. "One day we'll get there." "One day, Jesus will return." All of that is true. But Jesus reminds us not to forsake the present. Last Saturday, over 1400 youth leaders, students and volunteers gathered at the Meeting House to be inspired and challenged. Time and time again, they were reminded to consider what God is doing right now, and

Blizzard 2017 1&2 review

By |2017-02-18T00:02:19-05:00February 18th, 2017|Alvin Lau, Events|0 Comments

After each retreat season, someone inevitably asks me which one was better. After going through 31 separate Blizzard retreats, I've realized that, from a life transformation perspective, each one has its own unique distinctions. For Blizzard 1, Leanne and Dallas Friesen used 4 sign posts to see where Jesus reroutes us: intersection, detour, one way and traffic lights.

Sometimes we realize how deep our souls really are; most of the time we don’t. Yet it’s in the depths that we discover some key truths God has implanted in us. This year’s youth pastor’s retreat attempted to dig down deep into the souls of 15 youth leaders (including 1 senior pastor) at Camp Kwasind. Time and space was set aside for such exploration. Our retreat began with a night
