HIGH IMPACT WINTER RETREAT FOR STUDENT MINISTRIES

Everything about Deep Freeze – from the main sessions and seminars, to the outrageous fun and abundant free time options – is carefully crafted to be a catalyst for you and your ministry. Deep Freeze is an environment designed by New England youth leaders for New England churches.

And it keeps getting better! We continue to prayerfully and intentionally refine the experience to maximize the impact. We cover the details so you can do what you do best: invest in the lives of students.

2019 WEEKENDS

January 4-6, 2019

SPEAKER: TRAVIS CRIM

Travis has been speaking professionally for more than twenty years. His initial opportunities came while he was still a student-athlete at the University of Alabama through FCA and Cru. Since then, he has continued to develop his unique brand of communication, infusing a passion for Biblical truth with practical life-application and humor. He speaks extensively for the JH Ranch and Outback America in addition to marriage, family and corporate conferences throughout the country.

BAND: SING LOVE

Sing Love is a collective. Their vision is to lead people into the throne room of God and then step out of the way so everyone can experience the love and glory of Jesus Christ. Sing Love consists of 20+ (and counting) worship leaders who have a passion to lift up the name of Jesus through music and art. Sing Love can look and feel very differently from one event to another, but what remains true about the band is wherever they go they will glorify the name of Christ with every chance they get.

Micah Beckwith of Sing Love sums it up by saying, “Our prayer and vision is that everyone in the audience would go deeper into the presence of God. We want people who walk away from a Sing Love event to remember the time they had an encounter with their Creator who loves them deeply! If that happens then we’ve succeeded.”

January 11-13, 2019

BAND: ONE VOICE ANTHEM

We are One Voice Anthem, a Christian band originating in Albany, NY. After years of serving as worship leaders for thousands of believers at our churches, we all discussed the desire to lead Christians everywhere in worship by writing original music and putting our own passion, gratitude, and praise into song. Following the example of great worshipers past and present, One Voice Anthem seeks to bring a thoughtful and powerful message through each song we write, with Scripture being the core inspiration and the freeing truth in every line. The name One Voice Anthem was chosen because of a vision seen during the first writing session; one person singing praises to God while seemingly standing alone until the viewpoint expands and millions of people around the world are seen singing the same song to the same Savior along with the one. With this idea of a united, global anthem, the members of One Voice Anthem are excited to bring Christians from every place and background together to praise the one and only Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, with one voice.

Over the last ten years I have been blessed with the opportunity to speak, teach and create incredible environments for thousands of teenagers and college students to see, hear and experience who God is.  I love speaking and teaching God’s Word in a way that challenges the creative process and isn’t just relevant, but applicable and life changing.  I also love coming alongside people in the trenches of ministry and working to bring a fresh perspective and creative approach to hit the moving target of students (not literally hitting students…well maybe…who knows).

Deep Freeze runs every weekend from January 4th until March 17th, 2019

WHAT TO EXPECT

Large Group Gatherings

Deep Freeze features 4 large group gatherings with engaging worship from up and coming bands and rich teaching from compelling speakers. We craft each gathering to engage a wide spectrum of students and make sure the truth of God’s story is centerstage.

Small Group Discussions

Our mission is to advance and support the work of the local church and local youth ministry. In each Deep Freeze weekend, we carve out significant blocks of time at key moments for your group to have discussion. We believe this is the best way to ensure that the 40 hours of Deep Freeze have 52 weeks of impact for you. We always give the youth leader the last word.

Breakout Sessions

Breakout sessions at Deep Freeze engage students in a smaller environment. Our experienced team offers an option for students no matter where they are on their spiritual journey, from those with no Christian context to those seeking Christ and deeper discipleship.

Leaders Meeting

Leaders Meetings at Deep Freeze are not just information, they are inspiration. We LOVE youth workers and take time each morning to gather to open God’s Word and pray. Many leaders note this time as one of the highlights of their year.
