2017 Fall Getaway


The Fall Getaway is designed to provide rest (at the beach!), connection with Christ and others, and fresh perspective on the intersection of real-life and faith for the post-college 20-something’s of Portland.

  • Make space to hear from God
  • Connect with 20-somethings from across the city
  • Renew your perspective
  • Have a blast at the beach!

What to expect

Join some friends and meet some new ones while getting away for some fun for a beach getaway. (Trust us, you will want a weekend away after the post-Labor Day grind). We will also worship together and engage over the Word a few times but there will be plenty of time to pause and breathe in the ocean air.

1-1 appointments to discuss topics like calling, vocation and identity with a trained Spiritual Director will also be available.

Spots are limited! Our group is limited to 80, please register ASAP!

$99 – before September 1st
$109 – By September 15th
$119 by Sept 29th

*** Day passes are available for those that can’t make the whole time. Please submit a contact form for more information.

Registration includes two nights beach lodging & meals all Saturday & Sunday morning. Join us if you can, and invite your friends if you’d like! This year, we have an amazing beach lodge for meals, communal space, main sessions and sleeping.

The Fall Getaway is designed to provide rest, connection and fresh perspective for the 20-somethings of Portland.

If you’re new to the city (moved here within 6 months) and miss the early bird discount date, we’ll have a special discount just for you. Stay tuned!

Scroll down for schedule/speaker information. Even though we’ve sought to make this really affordable for a weekend away, if cost is the main issue you cannot come, please contact us.

September 29th – October 1st


Breakaway Lodge

220 Nita
Gearhart, OR97138-2685



Friday – Arrive anytime after 5 pm as your schedule permits.  Friday night will involve mainly lively conversation, relaxation, quality dessert and snacks, and perhaps a dance party. Dinner is on your own. Have a question, need a ride or want to see who’s coming, join the Facebook event page?

Saturday – There will be an abundance of home-cooked goodness for breakfast. We will gather together in the morning and after dinner to worship together, hear some perspective from Scripture, and discuss. Otherwise, the day will be yours to enjoy the beach, hike, go antique shopping, etc., etc. with friends new and old. All meals on Saturday are included in the price of the get-a-way. Optional discussions (finances, spiritual direction, etc) will be offered in the afternoon.

Sunday – After another quality, while likely simpler breakfast, we will have one more intentional gathering to engage and renew our hearts. That will end around 11:00 and you are free to stick around and enjoy quaint Gearhart or explore the Oregon Coast more if you’d like.
