WHAT ARE STUDENTS SAYING ABOUT CSA RETREATS?
"Before coming to this retreat I was very close to giving up on my faith. But now I am feeling stronger than ever before."
"I wasn’t even going to come, but I think God knew how much I needed to be here and this retreat gave Him the space to work on me. I needed that a lot. This was an incredible way to start the year and I will carry it with me for the rest of the year."
"I am so extremely grateful for the opportunity to come on retreats such as this one. They are such a blessing. I would not be where I am in my faith without this time to build community and grow closer to the Lord."
"To have a chance to settle down, be outdoors, and let God ask me about my heart was an absolutely incredible blessing. God reminded me that He’s a person and that he loves me and made me as a gift – that was very healing to experience."
