For over 19 years, these retreats have become landmark experiences for thousands of teenagers on their spiritual journey.
This is one of the most anticipated and impactful weekends that students experience as it brings together fun, great teaching, spiritual growth, awesome food, and crazy activities. Our hope is that our churches make this a “must do” experience for their teens, as it is a place where the value of the local church meets the uniqueness of being part of a larger faith family.
This year’s speaker is Mona Scrivens. Rev. Dr. Mona Scrivens is lead pastor at Amberlea Presbyterian Church in Pickering. She has a passion for the Family…of every configuration. She believes strongly that the role of the Church is to be a support and resource so that families and individual members are nurtured, strengthened, and empowered to honour God in their homes and in the whole of their lives. Mona believes passionately that it is through families that the church extends its reach in nurturing faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Mona was the youth “guy” for many years at Grace Church in Scarborough. At the same time she owned and operated a company called Expectations and was contracted by several hospitals to provide pre and postnatal education. She has been seen on Cityline, The Women’s Network, CTV morning shows and a variety of other broadcasts, communicating her knowledge and passion for the family. Her video Ready for Delivery was also produced at that time. Mona is currently working on her second book, with a focus on pregnancy, childbirth and spirituality. Mona lives in Scarborough with her husband, Brian and her two amazing children, Emily and Tyler.
