BreakThru Student Retreat – 42 Years and counting!!

Session 1
Session 2

Over 900 Students and Leaders!

Dynamic outdoor recreation, “Late Night’s”, phenomenal worship, and riveting speakers and teachers all make up the essence of the BreakThru Student Retreats. This year was no exception. BT 2020 was a dynamic encounter with the Living God!!

We saw an unbelievable response in small group times at BreakThru 2020.  Each day at BreakThru students met with their Small Group leader to discuss what they were learning and how God was speaking to them personally. In those unique moments we saw God doing “immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine”. Students surrendered their lives to Christ, opened up about the struggles and difficulties of growing up in today’s culture, and found their answers in the life giving hope of Jesus Christ. Watching students discover a passion for Jesus is absolutely amazing. We are committed to reaching this generation for Christ!!!


Since 1978, God has been changing lives through worship, teaching, small groups, breakout sessions, recreation, late nights, and much more. Churches from the Southeast make the trip to Timber Creek Camp in Central Mississippi for a truly unique retreat experience!!

Every  year God moves in incredible ways with students giving their life to Christ for the first time and making big next steps in their faith walk with Him. Since it’s first retreat in 1978, over 30,000 students have been reached through the BreakThru Student Retreat! It is a blessing to spend these days with a generation of students who are already impacting the world around them for Christ. Planning for BreakThru 2019 is in full swing!!!

With a strong desire for students to have a true encounter with the living God, BreakThru Ministries has designed the optimal four-day retreat experience. Now held at Timber Creek Camp, this retreat has helped foster growth in student’s Christian walk for 41 years!

Cutting edge outdoor recreation, “Late Night’s”, phenomenal worship, and riveting speakers all make up the essence of the BreakThru Student Retreats. However, it is the small group element that really makes BreakThru a significant spiritual experience. During the course of the event students will spend significant time talking and sharing in their small groups of 8-10 people with their leader. It is in these moments we see God do “immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine”. BreakThru is about seeing lives changed by the gospel.

After programming student retreats for 42 years, BreakThru knows how to introduce teenagers to Christ in an exciting atmosphere!

Over the years, students have attended these retreats and have gone on to be strong men and women for Christ in virtually every area of life including ministry and missions.

Timber Creek provides the perfect setting for students from across the Southeast hear the saving message of Jesus Christ. Calling young men and women into a relationship with Jesus has been a critical emphasis off the ministry since 1978, and God continues to call us forward in this programming area.
