"At TEC I grow closer to Christ and make Christian friends that love and accept me."

Josh - STW TEC #1

"I know God placed me there for that weekend and I can't think of a better time or more fun way to strengthen my faith and discover a friend in Christ."

Guest - STW TEC #15

"I traveled to a place called Smithfield to spend three days at Short Journey Retreat Center. As I approached, I was hesitant, not sure what to expect and before I knew it I was joining in on fun games and then stood around a room to see what the next three days would hold. I was placed at a table of unknowns and soon became friends with them and I pray that we will be life-long friends. Then, I realized that I was in for a great experience with the praise music; testimonies from other Christians...teens, adults, and pastors; hands-on activities; and a challenge to renew my relationship with Jesus Christ."

Guest - STW TEC #15

"At a time in my life where I wasn't sure about my faith or my life, TEC gave me a different perspective on my relationship with God, with other Christians, and a better view towards myself."

Natalie STWTEC #24

"TEC is awesome! Everyone is loved and supported. When I made my TEC I was so scared that no one would like me and I would be left out. How wrong was I! I met a whole community of friends and believers."

Katie, STW TEC #23

"Thank you (TEC team and community) for making TEC the most awesome, amazing experience and best weekend of my life. I was deeply impacted by all that you had to say. And thank you everyone for accepting me in spite of the obvious differences. I would like to say thank you to all you for loving me even before you knew me and thank you for inspiring me to find God."

Keisha (Special K ;-)), STW TEC #25

"Being a guest really renewed my faith, and brought me closer to God....I came back as a servant. Once again my faith has been renewed and I got to see how God works and really makes a difference in peoples' lives."

Rachel, STW TEC #22

"Hearing people talk about their faith helps me to step back and pay more attention to what is happening in my own life and to look for God. WIGIAT - Where Is God In All This? - has become my motto."

Charlie, STW TEC #23

Paraphrase: I asked, "Lord, how can we know the way?"
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life." (John 14:5-6)
