Children and youth are the future of our church, and in the Minnesota Conference UCC they are a valued part of our present.
We engage youth in mission and worship through faith formation activities and leadership development. We also support clergy and lay leaders who work with youth through training and resources.
Fall Conference Youth Event
Osprey Wilds Environmental Learning Center
So often we have people in our lives who ask, “What do you plan to do?”, as if we must have a perfect answer. Through this time together, youth and adults will practice shifting our language that is more about curiosity and wonder rather than having the “right” answers. Through playful discussions, activities, and music, we will reimagine our “wild and precious life” that speaks to who we are, what we value, and how our faith can guide us in the world.

With the beauty of the natural surroundings, this retreat offers rest, community, and reflection as we share our concerns and hopes for the work of faith formation ministry. Be prepared to connect with the Sacred through slow, intentional walks, journaling, silent space, and conversations.
