No Limit

to what God can do

There is no limit to the usefulness of the one who, putting self aside, makes room for the working of the Holy Spirit upon his heart, and lives a life wholly consecrated to God.

Testimonies for the Church, volume 8, p19

Each year GYC West hosts a young adult retreat to gain strength in the faith, network safely with like-minded believers, and seek a closer communion with our Father. For 2021 the theme is "No Limit… to what God can do." During this past year many people have found themselves confronted with questions and concerns regarding God and His power. Has COVID limited God's ability to work in our lives? Does the division and fear in our country and the world limit God's ability to work through us? We believe nothing can limit our Lord's work when we follow His Word and we want to encourage you to trust Him alone.

Join us in 2021 to come away from your work and routines and seek revival together.

Be sure to bring an active mind, your Bible, and notepaper as this year's content is designed to bring you not only closer to our Savior, but also to give you the tools you need to become a strong worker for Him at your home and at your church.

Please be aware that we will be recording and live streaming our events, so please dress modestly.

A note about GPS: Google Maps has been proven to be accurate, however it tries to direct you off of Sierra Pines Road too early and onto a blocked road. Follow the road further down. We will have GWC West signs up to help guide you.

History Note

This site once belonged to the Adventist church - before Leoni Meadows was purchased. The main building, currently known as Judson Lodge, was built in the 1940s and Seventh-Day Adventist missionaries from around the world sent rocks and shells from their various missions that were all incorporated into the fireplace at the ends of the building.

Come and visit this historic location! One of our many goals for this event is to do what we can to improve the site to those around us, so come with a heart and mind willing to work for the Lord.
