Young Adult Fall Retreat

Fall Retreat, September 13-15, 2013


The theme for the weekend is "Why Us? Refocusing a Generation". The millennial generation, those born in the 1980s and 1990s can be known for being self-centered, afraid to commit, and caught in a society that values tolerance over truth. But God has another plan in mind for us! We have the resources, ability, and desire to make an impact on this world for Christ. Even if you were born a few years before millenials, the same principles apply to you, as there is not a distinct line between generations.

This year, our speaker will be Jonathan "JP" Pokluda, who is the Young Adults Director at Watermark church in Dallas, TX and leader of "The Porch." He will be joined by several of the MBC worship leaders, as we explore what God's Word has to say about how to live out accomplishing His purposes for the world

Each year several hundred young adults, 20s and 30s, leave the busyness of Washington DC behind for a weekend to attend the Fall Retreat for a chance to get away, grow in your relationship with Christ, and to build community with other believers.

If you’re new to MBC, the Fall Retreat is a great opportunity to meet new friends and get better connected within our church community. And for those who have been around for awhile, it’s a chance for catching up with old friends and making new ones.


Rockbridge Alum Springs is located in the Shenandoah Valley just 15 miles west of Lexington, Virginia. For more than 150 years travelers have come to the mountains of Rockbridge to relax and be renewed. Rockbridge Alum Springs, once one of Virginia’s premier summer resorts, was visited by Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson in the 1850’s. (Don't worry they've renovated a few times since then!) Today, their first-class facilities remain surrounded by the tranquil beauty of the mountains and include a variety of activities.


The cost for early registration is $159 per person until midnight Tuesday, August 20. Registration will increase to $189 per person on August 21. Registration will close at midnight on Monday, September 2.


If for some reason you need to cancel your registration to attend the Fall Retreat, you may request a full refund minus a $10 non-refundable deposit until August 14th. You may then request a 50% refund until August 28th. After August 28th, you will not be able to receive any refunds. Please note that registrations are NOT transferable.
