Our first DNOW retreats of 2016 are coming quickly! This year the focus is Jesus:Disciple-Maker, and we are super excited to meet all the students and pastors coming in for the weekends. Here’s what student pastors who came last year thought about their DNOW experience:


“I think you guys do a great job. I appreciate your staff’s individual interest and care of our students.”

“Our experience from planning and booking to pulling away on Sunday was wonderful!”

“They literally begged us to bring them back for a week all the way home!”

“You will see us returning as long as you have events.”

“As always, our students are challenged by your staff.”


“One of the reasons I keep bringing students to SWO is the teaching/preaching and the relationships with staffers. Both of those were great this weekend, so it’s a win in my book!”

“Thanks for partnering with youth ministries to be faithful in preaching the Gospel and seeking to aid in making disciples. You guys ROCK!”

“I loved all of it! The staff, sessions, worship, share groups! Very encouraging.”

“Very pleased. We will certainly come again.”

“This is our second year coming and we absolutely love it. The kids always have a blast, and I love that the Word of God is always presented in a powerful way.”

“I thought you all did an amazing job.”


 “It was amazing. I love the staff and worshipping with them. The youth and I always look forward to returning every year.”

“We fully believe that Snowbird challenges not just the students, but the leaders as well. Every time we return I am always reminded of the dedication each of you have to God and to helping the students be better equipped to meet the challenges of the world we live in!”

“There are not enough words to describe the experiences at Snowbird. As a leader, I always feel challenged in my own walk with our Lord and my students feel the same.”

“Everything was fantastic.”

“Incredible curriculum! Teachers were very engaging and knowledgeable.”

“I have seen a lot of what is out there for camps and retreats, SWO is by far the best I have seen. I appreciate the gospel-centered staff and curriculum.”

“I have absolutely no complaints.”

“Great weekend. Everyone in our group loved it.”

“I praise God for what He is doing at SWO and I hope you guys keep doing what you have been doing. It is very useful to us as student pastors.”
