“Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.”

- Matthew 11:28

The Pittsburgh Kids Foundation appreciates all that you do for students. You sacrifice a lot and we know it...the sleepless weekend retreats, lock-ins, week-long mission trips, summer camps, endless supplies of Mountain Dew and pizza, and hours spent preparing talks, and counseling kids and their families! It all takes a toll on your body, mind, and soul. You are, in fact, weary and burdened.

This retreat is planned with you in mind. It’s a time to “come away” with Jesus and experience His presence and peace. It is also a time to connect with fellow women in youth ministry as well as wives of youth pastors.
