The Campus Ministries United (CMU) department is hosting their annual fall retreat at Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, NC this Friday.

CMU will leave campus Friday at 3 p.m., and return Saturday. Events going on at the fall retreat include: worship, bible study, games and breakout sessions.

“The thing I am looking forward to the most is the opportunity for many of the freshmen to see and experience Campus Ministries for the first time,” said CMU Coordinator, James Mauney.

There are a few changes from last year. Mauney said they will only have two leaders for the breakout session instead of four.

Dr. Eddie Stepp, a GWU religion professor, and Matt Orth, a teaching elder at Broad River Community Church and a member of Clayton King Ministries. The main sessions will be led by Michael Kelley.

Rachel Rushing will be leading the worship sessions. Rushing is a worship leader at Broad River Community Church. She has led worship for previous CMU events.

Mauney said, “Micah Honeycutt, JJ Gibbs, Mindy Robinson and myself have worked together, and ultimately I am excited to once again head to the beautiful Ridgecrest Conference Center in Asheville, N.C.”

They are expecting to have about 100 students for the second time in a row.
