SHARING THE STORY OF OUR MINISTRY

Through our work on The REAP Team, we receive questions from teens on a variety of topics – often about love, relationships, and faith. I’m always happy to help, if I can. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I recently received a question I’ve never been asked before: “How do you know if you’ve loved your loved ones well enough before they’re gone?”

The REAP Team is (and always has been) a traveling retreat ministry – we come to you. We love that our retreat work takes us to exotic locations such as Osage Bend, Missouri and Red Bud, Illinois. Our mini-road trips make for great team bonding and we all drive cars with great gas mileage.

We’ve been blessed to present retreats in a wide variety of locations – including (but not limited to) cathedrals, churches, retreat centers, rectory basements, school cafeterias, community centers, libraries, classrooms, gymnasiums, auditoriums, and barns. Our venues have run the gamut from elegant to janky to potentially haunted, and everything in between. From the brand-new to the bug-infested, chances are good that we’ve led a retreat there.

Many of us desire to grow closer to Jesus, but we don’t always know how—or we forget. These videos – from our archives – offer us all some very practical ways to grow in faith. Click on any or all of the following for great ideas as to how to stir up the Holy Spirit in your life.

When moving on seems impossible, there are a few things that can help you work through the loss and start fresh; we hope you will benefit from this advice from one of our former staff members. Not only do we offer you the question and answer below, but for additional encouragement, be sure to click on the audio player and listen to our podcast – full of much more practical advice!
