Friday 9/1 – Monday 9/4
“The Weekend” is an annual gathering of family and friends with a history of celebrating our unity and diversity in Jesus. Together, people from different generations, ethnicities, cultures and vocations will come together to learn about and encounter the person of Jesus through story, community, and worship. The Weekend is held at “The Canyon” at Washington Family Ranch, a remarkable Young Life resort in central Oregon. Click here to learn more about “The Canyon” at Washington Family Ranch!
This weekend is open to any and all. We encourage you to invite whoever you want to be there with you.
What can I expect at The Weekend?
Hundreds of passionate followers of Jesus from all around WA state and beyond.
New friendships centered in Jesus that transcend race, age, and culture.
Top-notch camp amenities at “The Canyon” at Washington Family Ranch. The work crew at The Canyon will graciously provide us with all meals (Friday evening through Monday morning), as well as bed linens and towels.
Scriptural and story-based teaching that will challenge and inspire you to greater heights. Our two primary speakers are Jamie Winship and Romanita Hairston.
Romainta believes in the power of purposeful collective action to address the causes of poverty, fight injustice and build a better world for children and families. Prior to coming to work for the Murdock Trust, Romanita led the U.S. Programs division at World Vision with a conviction that “we all give back by starting where we are, with what we have to achieve sustainable solutions to poverty here and around the world.” She has dedicated her life, professionally and personally, to improving the well-being of children.
Jamie has worked in several jihadist areas over the last 20 years. He has held teaching positions at universities in Palestine, Jordan, Iraq, West Java, and North Carolina. Jamie’s personal experience of listening for God’s voice in his daily life and in pivotal moments, combined with his scriptural insight, make him a dynamic, informative, and entertaining communicator.
