Soul Care

We know that people who are passionately serving in ministry often neglect to refuel themselves. You’ll find places for you to care for your soul, whether you spend time in our prayer chapel, visit our Sanctuary, or meet with a spiritual director. You’ll also experience times of worship during our Big Room sessions, where you get to actually participate (instead of planning or leading it)!

Sign-ups coming soon!


The sanctuary is a place to learn new ways to pray that you can take back to your students and communities. In the sanctuary you will also find a place to pray in art, an interactive Stations of the Cross and three daily prayer sessions called the Hours. Sanctuary offerings will be led by youth ministry leaders who are passionate about the soul care of all youth workers and the importance of having a full and robust life with God.


The prayer chapel is a totally silent space where no one will interrupt you. Interactive prayer stations allow you to engage God with all your senses. There’s even a space for napping at the rest station.

Spiritual directors

 Spiritual directors are available throughout the weekend to answer questions or provide spiritual care. Signups for spiritual directing sessions and more information will be released early fall.
