Pre-Event Session on Tuesday morning

All participants are invited to attend a FREE pre-event session with a small panel of Sports, Rec, and Fitness Outreach veterans who will share on topics including...

  • What I wish I'd had known when I started.

  • How to stay fresh in the ministry  and avoid burnout.

  • How to balance family and ministry life.

  • How to maximize your time at REACH.

The veterans panel will include some of our main session speakers as well several men and women with decades of sports ministry experience. Time will be provided for dialogue and questions during this special time together.

We will conclude prior to lunchtime, but no meal is included in the session. (Email us if you’d like to add lunch for $15)


Options On-site at Ridgecrest

Hiking  - Ridgecrest offers miles of hking trails on site.  White oak and red maple trees seem to reach the clouds. Evergreens blanket the trails with dropped pine cones. And the mountain laurel grows so thick in places, it creates a lush umbrella over the entire pathway. Trails range from easy to moderately difficult, but each affords spectacular views from scenic vantage points.

Disc Golf - Bring your own discs and enjoy a round of disc golf around the beautiful property.

Relax - When was the last time you planned a morning to simply stop and relax?  Find a rocking chair or enjoy  some time alone with a cup of coffee in the cafe.
