Springhill Winter Retreat


I’m excited to invite you to attend our 2018 Winter Retreat: SpringHill. SpringHill is a camp located in Evart, Michigan where great fellowship and fun happens along with being challenged by God’s Word in powerful group sessions. You can expect quality speakers and touring bands who are committed to Biblical truth and know how to engage the Jr. High and Sr. High age groups. Each of the four large group sessions are geared to engage every student with the Gospel and challenge them to move forward in a relationship with Him. The sessions are surrounded by awesome activities and group events, including the fierce broomball competition, a groomed snowboard terrain park, tubing, basketball tournaments, and a ton more!

This year there’s limited amount of space available and we will only be able to accept the first 90 students who register online and mail or hand their money to Paul Ginther. So please look at the information below and register soon.

Additional Camp Details:

Speaker: Bryan Jones

Bryan has been the Director of Student Impact, the high school ministry of Willow Creek Community Church, since 2007. He has a passion for teaching, discipleship, and evangelism and sees student ministry as a place where God can shape, grow, and call young men and women to play a part in building up His church for the rest of their lives.


Band: Mike Lee

Singer/songwriter and mixed martial arts trainer Mike Lee has been traveling coast to coast with
his band over the last 3 years, and they are just getting started.

Mike’s 2015 EP, All I Need, was named #8 of the year by CCM Magazine. That album captured quiet moments from a difficult season for Mike, in which his father was diagnosed with lung cancer. For a year and a half, while balancing family, recording, touring and leading worship at his home church in Indiana, Mike walked with his father though his cancer fight. Then, in July, Mike’s father passed away.

 In 2016 Mike responded with 5 singles. And on July 22 2017, he released his first full length project, Worth It. The album features songs co-written and produced by

Rusty Varenkamp (Kristian Stanfill, Jason Gray, Building 429), Seth Mosley (For King and Country, Mat Kearney, Bethel Music) and Cody Norris from Ed Cash Studio (Dave Barnes, Needtobreathe, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Kari Jobe).

“I started playing guitar to be like my dad,” says Mike. “Because music is something he and I shared, I wanted to remember him by writing the best songs of my life to this point. With the help of some talented friends in Nashville, I think we’ve done that.” 

Mike has recently shared the stage with Switchfoot, Family Force 5, For King and Country, Chris Tomlin, Leeland, Michael W. Smith, I Am They, The Digital Age, Audrey Assad, and the Sidewalk Prophets, among others.
