Retreat Leadership

Two student leaders posing with a thumbs-up on our New Student Retreat.

Campus Ministry offers many ways for students to get involved helping to lead our various retreat offerings. You can always reach out to the campus minister responsible for a particular retreat to inquire about opportunities for student leadership on it. A few of the ways you can get involved as a retreat leader are highlighted below:

 New Student Retreat 

New Student Retreat, held midway through fall quarter, is an excellent retreat for first-time leaders and experienced leaders alike. Open to all SU students regardless of whether they themselves attended NSR as a first-year, New Student Retreat Leader applications launch at the end of the spring quarter prior to the retreat year. The application will be made available on ConnectSU. If you want to be sure to be notified of when it posts, email Anna Robertson, Campus Minister for Retreats.

Search Retreat: Deadline Extended to December 3rd!

Leadership opportunities within the Search Retreat program are available to alumni of SU's Search Retreat, as well as to students who attended a similar retreat in high school (e.g., Kairos, Encounter, Search) who have completed their first year at SU.

The Search Retreat offers various ways for leaders, called Search Workers, to help create the Search experience for their peers. Search is offered in winter and spring quarters, and applications for leadership are released during the quarter preceding the respective retreat. 

The deadline to apply to work Winter Search (February 23-25, 2018) has been extended to Sunday, December 3rd. The application can be accessed here.

The application is only visible to eligible applicants (i.e., alumni of the SU Search Retreat or a comparable high school retreat). If you believe you are eligible to apply but receive an error message, please take the following steps:
