Join other youths and their families this spring at Hollister SDA Church as we wrestle with the debate of creation and evolution. Does science align with the Bible? Who can I trust? Is faith enough? Strengthen your walk with God, fellowship with friends, eat good food, share the Good News with the community, and much more at this retreat hosted by AYM West.


Please be sure to register everyone who will be attending the retreat, including adults! Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who must register and pay separately.

April 19-21 – Hollister SDA Church

While most Christians know how the universe came to be and how God created all we see from nothing, the same is not true for everyone. Millions of people do not believe in the existence of a loving God. How can we prove creation to those who do not believe Bible truth?

Presenting the Evidence, we will combine scientific facts with solid theology. Our prayer is that this event will give you the ability to unflinchingly counter evolution with the Bible, backed by the scientific facts that seem to prove creation wrong.
