Camp Siloam offers Hold Fast retreat for youth

Camp Siloam’s Hold Fast retreat for junior high and senior high students will be held Oct. 17-19.

The goal of the retreat is to encourage students in their Christian walks and to help them understand what it means to “hold fast” to Christ with all their hearts and souls.

Student speaker and evangelist Brian Burgess will serve as speaker; and Clay Helder, of northwest Arkansas, will lead worship.

The retreat’s theme verse will be Joshua 22:5.

"A few years ago I noticed throughout the Bible there is this phrase ‘hold fast,’” said Jason Wilkie, Camp Siloam executive director. “As I began to look at the phrase, it literally meant to ‘cling.’ Junior high and high school are difficult times to hold on to your faith. Hold Fast is an opportunity for people to remember what God said to them this summer – no matter what camp you went to – and to cling to His Word.”
