Youth Quake

Looks like a festival, feels like a retreat

YQ 2019 Highlight Reel

It feels like a retreat because we have one speaker, one worship band, and one theme that drives our teaching throughout all the main sessions. It's youth group focused where your group will stay together in our dorms and eat together in our dining hall. Also, after each main session you'll meet with your group for "Youth Group Time" where you can discuss the message with your students and reconnect as a group. This lends itself to a common experience that brings people together and helps deepen relationships.

While the retreat aspects provide so much, YQ is also much more than your average youth group retreat. With 1800+ people from across Canada, YQ has an incredible energy to it. With a mix of concerts, breakout sessions, activities, and our four main sessions, YQ becomes a perfect combination of festival and retreat. Join us this February for a weekend you won't forget!

2019 THEME:

It always seems easier to follow the crowd. It always seems safer to follow the path that everyone around us is choosing. To go a different way, to follow a path with fewer people and more difficulty, seems counter-intuitive. However, that is exactly what Jesus calls us to do.

When we choose to follow Jesus, we are choosing that other path. We are choosing a path that leads to wholeness, joy, and life to the full. We are choosing a path that teaches us that our lives are not just about us, but are part of a much bigger story. We are choosing a path that, while difficult, leads us to deeper relationship with the God who created us and loves us. When we choose this path, we are not aimlessly wandering: we know where we are going.

In Matthew 7, Jesus calls this path The Narrow.

Join us at YQ19 as we work together towards a greater understanding of what life looks like on The Narrow.
