Thank you for your interest in donating to Great River Teens Encounter Christ! Below you can see a few of the ways your donations help the youth in our community.
GRT sponsors four retreat programs (Quest, Re-Quest, TEC and Mini-TEC). Attendance fees alone are not enough to cover the costs of these retreats. On average, the campaign pays for around $15,000 a year in retreat expenses.
GRT strives to help all youth encounter Christ. For some of these youth and their families attendance fees are a burden. Campaign funds make financial assistance readily available.
GRT has been a part of young people’s lives for 43 years. We would like to be around for 43 more. Campaign funds allow the GRT Board of Directors to establish the financial reserves necessary for financial sustainability.
GRT strives to help youth and adults continue to develop spiritually outside of retreat weekends. Campaign funds are used to make opportunities for continued development possible.
GRT aims to be visible to as many young people as possible in order to bring more youth to Christ. Marketing and promotional materials are paid for with campaign funds.
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Luke 6:38
