Mid Summer Breakaway

Gospel advancing teen ministry to lead and engage the youth in your community to further God's Kingdom

Mid-Summer Breakaway aims to introduce people to Jesus as their Lord and Life through practical Bible teaching, praise & worship through music, recreational activities and much more. This weekend includes a focused time of training to equip youth leaders, sponsors and student leaders with the resources and tools to build a Christ-centred, Gospel advancing teen ministry to lead and engage the youth in your community to further God’s Kingdom.

July 26 – 28, 2019

This weekend is designed for Youth Leaders to invite a hand-selected group of youth (small or large) for a time of focus or re-focus during the summer.

The weekend is full of activities and games, as well as solid teaching/discussion times from and around God’s Word. It is a refreshing time of encouragement and growth for each individual and group as God makes Himself known to all.


Hosea – A Story of God’s Relentless Love

An unfaithful wife. A faithful God. The story of Hosea and Gomer shows us that God will never leave or abandon us regardless of our actions, attitude or inabilities. Throughout the book of Hosea, God is teaching His people that He is the only one who saves, supplies and satisfies. In His relentless love, God promises His people that one day soon He would send a Saviour. We will learn that when we choose to seek God, we will find hope instead of trouble and relationship instead of brokenness. We will discover the God of relentless love – Jesus Christ.

Mid-Summer Breakaway Testimonials

MSB is great for our group. It is shorter than most camps and  the price makes it much more accessible for our students, many of whom can’t afford a week long camp and aren't comfortable being away for a week  from what is familiar to them. The outdoor activities and food are amazing and we see youth who are often on the fringes dive right in.
