Join us as we gather together to worship, experience the Living Word of God  November 16-18, 2018 at Cross Pointe Retreat Center in Rocky Mount, MO.

Today young Christians experience many different kinds of afflictions – personal, emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical – and God is the one who delivers us from these afflictions.

Several of our interest centers will focus on common afflictions that we face as Christians such as depression and suicide.  We will also have interest centers focusing on sharing the Word of God with others. Specific Interest Center presenters and other information will be available soon.


Cross Pointe Retreat Center features hotel-style lodging (most rooms feature 2 Queen beds to house up to 4 youth per room).  During the retreat we will make use of the large worship center for our general sessions, break-out rooms in several of the retreat center’s buildings, and large indoor recreation center.

Included in the registration cost of $165 per person are 3 meals on Saturday (breakfast, lunch, & dinner) and breakfast on Sunday.  Snacks will be provided Friday evening.

NYG Adult Leader

We will be having our first National Youth Gathering Missouri District training at the Sr. High DYG! 

The Homesteaders

We are excited to welcome back the Homesteaders, led by Jason Phelps.  He will be joined by bandmates Adrian, Arthur, and Stace.  Jason and his wife Ashley have both helped plant an LCMS congregation in the Fall of 2013 called Oikos (Greek, meaning “the extended family”) whose campus resides a couple miles north of downtown Houston, TX. Jason is the full-time worship leader at Oikos who gets to lead worship every Sunday with Ashley.

Jason has played a number of youth gatherings over the years including the Rocky Mountain DYG & the LCMS NYG (’07).  Most recently, they performed 12 mini-concerts for the 2017 NFL Super Bowl in Houston (they were 1 of 75 acts selected out of 450 who auditioned).

The style of music ranges from Folk/Americana to Rock. They love to lead worship, both intimate and high energy. Rend Collective and Bethel tend to be their favorite worship bands to cover in addition to their originals.
