A Retreat for Young Adults 18-30yrs

JUNE 9 - 11TH , 2023

Pursuit Young Adults Retreat is a retreat organized by Hope Community Church and Frontier Lodge Christian Youth Camp. Our desire is to bring post-secondary young adults from across the province together to experience God’s creation, His love, and a community of other people that are excited about pursuing a life identified in Christ.

Kick off your summer with an awakening retreat by the lake at Frontier Lodge. The weekend will include main sessions, worship, teachings, thought-provoking seminars and discussions, FUN and time in community building friendships. There will be lots of opportunities to hang out by the waterfront and enjoy swimming, boating, and tubing. We’ll have organized group games and sports, board games, and more!

Keynote Speaker

Cody Matchett is the Scholar in Residence at First Assembly Church in Calgary, Alberta, where he teaches, writes, and pastors. Cody is a PhD student studying Paul and character in the Graeco-Roman world and the co-author of Revelation for the Rest of Us

He lives in the Beltline of Calgary with his wife Brianna who is a counselling-therapist, his daughter Aletheia Theodora, and his son Atticus Ignatius.

Worship Leader

Stephane De Grasse has been leading worship for over 25 years and has been doing so at Westview Bible Church for over 20.

Devoted husband and father of 4, his heart for God, worship and youth have been the driving forces behind his passion. He has lead many youth conferences and retreats and is looking forward to Pursuit this Spring!

Seminar Speakers

Born in Toronto, but thoroughly raised in Montreal since childhood, David loves our city and province. He feels called to serve in and through the local church because he believes it is the main way God alerts the world to his kingdom and life sourced in Jesus. Outside of his pastoral vocation in the West Island, you can often find David around tables with family or friends, exploring coffee shops where solid Italian espresso roast is served, reading something, or biking or landscaping in the summer when he gets a chance.

He’s married to his wonderfully authentic wife Franca; they have two young adult children. He’s been the pastor of Westside Gathering since its inception 19 years ago.

Brianna Matchett works as counselling-therapist at LivingWell Counselling in Calgary Alberta. She is a Canadian certified counsellor (CCC) and supervisor in training (CCC-S), with a masters degree in counselling (MC) and additional certification in Gottman and Motivational Interviewing. She lives in the Beltline of Calgary with her husband Cody, her daughter Aletheia Theodora, and her son Atticus Ignatius.

Seminar Topic: Approaching Anxiety
The seminar will discuss the importance of holistic health, several important psychological approaches for navigating our highly anxious systems, and some of the tools that will be necessary for coping with anxiety over the long haul.

Rustic Cabin Accommodations

This weekend we’ll be camping out in rustic camp cabins! The girls will be staying in cabins on the east side of camp, and the boys will be staying on the west side of camp. Everyone must bring their own bedding, pillows and towels. We recommend that everyone bring warm clothes for sleeping, and an extra blanket just in case. We’ll send you the weather forecast before the weekend to help you pack!


Bring Your Own Tent

If you’re feeling adventurous, why not bring a tent and sleep in the great outdoors? This would be a good option for married couples who would like to stay together over the weekend, or those who would just like a little more space to themselves. Please let us know in advance if you plan to bring a tent so we can prepare a spot for you!
