Ironman Spring Break Retreat

One of our favorite things as a ministry each year is our Ironman trip. This year we are headed back to southern California for a week of community, hanging out on the beach, incredible worship and teaching and so much more!

We call this retreat Ironman, not because we complete an actual Ironman, but we strive to make it a week of challenging and sharpening one another in our faith. As Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” We can’t wait to see how God will grow us and challenge us as we seek him this Spring Break. We hope you will join us!


March 18-24


Lake Elsinore, California
We will be staying at a very large vacation rental on the lake!


All high school students are welcome!


$450 until February 27
$550 starting February 28

Students will need to bring an addition $50-75 for some meals out during the week!

Please reach out to your campus student ministry leader if you would like to discuss the possibility of a partial scholarship. We don’t want the cost to keep students form participating in this incredible week!

Training Challenges

Each year before Ironman we ask students & leaders to do a few things to intentionally spiritually prepare for the time we are going have together in California. Below are the three challenges that we are all going to complete before we leave on the trip this year. We have also linked a guide to help you through these challenges and to give you ideas for completing them!

1. Read or listen through the book of Philippians in one sitting three different times.

2. Choose one of two passages to memorize from the book of Philippians:
 – Philippians 2:1-11
 – Philippians 3:7-14

*We have verse cards for these available at our campuses to help with memorization

3. Set aside one hour three different times leading up to Ironman and spend time being in God’s presence.


If you have questions or concerns before or during the trip, please contact the ministry leader from your campus.
