Every fall, EPC Student Ministries invites youth workers from across the denomination to come together for a soul-care retreat - what we call our Youthworker Oasis.
Officially stated, the Youthworker Oasis exists "to provide a context for EPC youth workers (full-time, part-time, paid & volunteer) to come together in order to step off the front lines of ministry for a time of finding refreshment for their souls, reconnecting with family, sharpening their edges, gaining new life & ministry perspective, finding recreation and, of course, drawing closer to Christ." And what makes this Oasis unique is this: It's exclusively for those who are serving in "the EPC tribe." It's a great chance to build tradition, camaraderie and long-term relationships and partnerships across the denomination. Afterwards, you'll be fit and energized to zoom back up that on-ramp, ready for the next leg of the ministry journey.
