Power Up for Kids or Families

Kids Need to Experience God

Power Up Retreat is exactly what the name implies. We are going to do more than just talk about, or learn about God’s power.  Children are going to experience the presence of Precious Holy Spirit.

God’s power is available to every believer to help us win over sin, love each other better and even understand the Bible better. After 3 ½ years of instruction, Jesus knew His followers needed more.

They needed Power, Holy Spirit Power…and we still do! He wants to fills all of us, and yes, that includes kids and their families. So why not family size it so everyone joins in the adventure!

Have you experienced the splendor of majestic mountains lately?

Mountain vistas can take your breath away! I’ve experienced mountains all over the U.S., seen them in books and  photos; I’ve heard passionate testimonies of people that have been to some of the highest. But none of that could prepare me for the breath taking experience of actually seeing Mt. McKinley, the highest mountain in North America! It was beyond description!

Experiencing the Presence of God is…

beyond my ability to describe.

I have tons of stories to tell; stories of kids, parents and even me personally experiencing the presence and power of God. Stories can stir your faith, but there is still nothing like the joy of experiencing Him personally. His presence is life changing! Kids need to experience Him like that too!

Children will never know their Heavenly Father UNLESS He has visitation rights.

Just as children will never know their father if he doesn’t have visitation rights, they can’t know their heavenly Father without experiencing Him first hand.

It’s not enough to know about God. We need to know Him personally!

And that includes children too!

I met a lady recently that didn’t believe children could experience the power and presence of God. That is until her daughter experienced Him at a Family Service. She’s knows now! Shocked, she watched as her daughter experienced the life changing power of God.


Jesus corrected his disciples

“Let the children come to me.” And He still means it! He loves the praises of children and children love to praise Him. We just need to give them opportunity!


Everybody responds to the presence of God differently

In His presence there is fullness of Joy
