The Fall Retreat is a Mid-Atlantic multi-church retreat for students currently in grades 6-12. For the past 15 years, the Fall Retreat has seen 1000s of students, from across the region, take steps to follow Jesus and own their own faith. The Fall Retreat 2023 is happening this upcoming October 20-22. It includes multiple large group sessions with teaching, music, games, and more. 

We want to make the Fall Retreat an easy weekend for YOU to experience WITH your students and leaders. We promise, the Fall Retreat is one of those weekends students will talk about for the rest of the year.

    Dan Smith is a pastor, church planter, rapper, and all around cool dude. The Fall Retreat is excited to have Dan as our high school speaker this year. Dan, a.k.a. “The Replacement Beastie,” is a rapper, storyteller-preacher, and comedy-writer. Smitty was born and raised in the Buckeye State, but he didn’t grow up in a religious home. His family literally never went to church – which gives him a pretty unique perspective on faith.






    Kayla Jeffers

Kayla is one of the best communicators of the truth of Jesus we’ve ever seen and we can’t wait for your middle schoolers to spend the weekend with her!
