What will the accommodations be like?
Like previous retreats, we will be staying at the dormitories at Biola University. The layout of the dorms vary – some are suite-style with private bathrooms, and others have rooms that have gender-specific shared hallway bathrooms. Dorm-style rooms come with bunk beds. Due to limited space, priority for suites will go to families with young children and those with medical considerations. Please email with specific questions regarding accommodations.

What will meals look like?
Meals are served buffet-style in the Biola Dining Hall.

Is childcare available?
Yes! Childcare is provided during all sessions, from infants up to 5th grade. We are so thankful for our Children’s Program and all the servant volunteers who help make it happen.

What about for the youth (6-12th graders)?
We are excited to have Daniel Stevens, a pastor and PhD candidate for Cambridge’s New Testament program, back as our youth speaker. The youth will have their own sessions and small groups. Please contact Pastor Eric Cai with any questions.

Will there be any free-time activities?
Yes! There will be some organized free-time activities that will be posted at a later date so stay tuned!

Can I attend the retreat part-time?
To ensure that all participants get the most out of our All-Church Retreat, we are not able to accommodate part-time attendees at this time.

Can I commute from home and attend the retreat activities during the day?
We ask that all retreat attendees commit to the full program of the retreat, so we are not able to accommodate commuter attendees at this time.

Are scholarships available?
Yes. If cost is an issue, please fill out a scholarship application.

What if I have to cancel?
If you have to cancel your retreat registration for any reason, please contact immediately. Depending on the cancellation date, a full or partial refund may be granted (but not guaranteed).
