Romans Retreat – August 17-19, 2018 (Register Here) The Romans weekend is a favorite here at The Hill.  It’s like going back to your roots for the weekend.  And honestly, the principles found in Romans 1-8 are the roots of this ministry.  We’ll revisit your identity in Christ, eradication of the old self, justification by faith, freedom from the power of sin, and more.

Patrick Johnson and Rick Underhill will lead our study through the first eight chapters of Romans this year. After years of racing through Romans to get done by Saturday afternoon, we’ve decided to slow the pace down a bit and enjoy the journey. We will begin at 7:00 pm Friday night and we’ll end around 10:00 am Sunday morning with a discussion of the materials covered. Actual coverage of Romans 1-8 will likely be completed on Saturday night. Whether you are new to the book of Romans or just need a review of the life-changing principles within, you are sure to enjoy Rick and Patrick’s insight and knowledge of the Scriptures.

The retreat begins Friday evening at 7:00 pm and ends Sunday morning at 10:00 am.  To hear audio from Patrick teaching a prior year’s retreat click here and scroll down to the 2016 Romans Retreat.  You’ll also find teaching from Rick at the same location.

Fall Retreat – October 19-21, 2018 (Register Here) 

Our annual Fall Retreat is a relaxing weekend of Bible study and fellowship for men and women, couples and singles.  

What a blessing this year to have Rick Underhill take us through his study of the book of James.  Rick’s insight will bring clarity to Scripture that is often misunderstood and restore your confidence in its truths.  Rick’s teaching is always encouraging and challenges you to think deeply about the Word and its Author.

The retreat will begin on Friday, October 19th, at 7:00 pm and end on Sunday morning, October 21st, around 10:00 am.  There is no cost for the retreat.

Teens who will enjoy participating in the retreat activities are welcome to attend as well. No childcare for younger children will be provided. Teens under 18 staying overnight at The Hill must have an adult chaperone.  The Fall Retreat has always been a fun weekend and we hope to see several of you for this event.

Winter Youth Retreat – January 18-20, 2019  This is our annual winter retreat for middle and high school students–39 hours filled with the Word, laughter, friendship, worship, fun, and a little bit of sleep. Students must be at least 13 to attend.

Ralph Harris will be back to teach along with some of our youth camp favorites—Chris Holloman and Dave Gibson.  Ralph recently finished his new book, Life According to Perfect, and will be sharing some of the same truths conveyed in its pages.  You can learn more about Ralph here.  Chris Holloman is a High School art teacher at Russellville (KY) High School.  He takes self-discovery learning to a whole new level.  He challenges students to think outside of the box and express what they’ve discovered in unconventional ways.  Dave Gibson is a Murray State University mathematics professor who loves to teach the Bible (even better than math).  Dr. Gibson has a passion for the youth of this generation and for seeing them walk in their Christ-given identity.

Mail in your application soon to secure your spot.  The cost is $35.  (Youth Retreat Appl. & Pricing) Yes, we need volunteers to help! (Volunteer Appl.)  

Men’s Retreat – April 26-28, 2019 (Register Here) Our annual Men’s Retreat for fathers, their sons, and single men of all ages.

The Men’s Retreat is a gathering of men passionate about faith in Jesus.  Sometimes intense, sometimes relaxed–it’s a reflection of the men who attend and the bold way that Jesus lives through them.   The young and old, rich and poor, those with status, those with none, come together as friends to worship Him with whom they share a common bond.  They come to teach and learn, to serve and be served, to study, to relax and drink deeply of fellowship with one another.

Depart from your routine and join us for this retreat. You’ll be glad you did.

Preston Gillham will be teaching at this upcoming Men’s Retreat. Pres has become a regular around here again. He brings fresh insights straight from time spent with Jesus, and while his dry wit also comes from Jesus, it probably gets filtered through Texas.

The Men’s Retreat is held at The Hill, 989 Hardin Wadesboro Road, in Hardin, KY. It begins at 7:00 pm on April 26th and goes through Sunday, April 28th, 10:00 am.  There is no charge for the weekend.  No childcare is provided.

Fellowship Retreat, February 22-23, 2019, (Register Here) (Announcement Video)“Seeking and finding the peace of the Holy Spirit is the sweetest pursuit I have experienced. Being in the company of others who love the Spirit elevates that joy.  Fellowship at The Hill always rests on the foundation of knowing the heart of the Creator and as a result is treasured by me and many others who attend retreats and events here.  But those moments can be fleeting.  Spontaneous discussions are often cut short by the responsibilities of a retreat or camp and the time requirement for the planned study sessions.”

The sole purpose of this gathering will be to spend a few days immersing ourselves in the fellowship we often find so elusive, to have no pull of responsibility, no rush to finish a thought, to spend time solely following the voice of the Holy Spirit with each other.  To have the opportunity to take what God has poured into us through the teaching of others, the knowledge, the experiences, the memories, the love, joy, peace, and rest, and just throw it up into the air and let it come down on whomever is there, in any form it takes; singing, discussing, laughing, crying, praying, and/or telling stories.” —Jon Keith Collins

We’ll gather at The Hill around 5:00 pm on Friday, 2/22/19, and go in groups to eat.  If you can’t make it by then, join us when you can.  We have the entire weekend set aside for fellowship with short planned sessions on Friday night, Saturday morning, and Saturday night.  As other plans develop we’ll add information here.
