The Living Stones is a 3 day, 2 night retreat held on Troy University's campus. Students can expect to begin building a foundation for their walk with Christ during their time at Troy University. Throughout these couple days, students will attend large worship sessions with speakers from local churches and ministries as well as smaller topic-based sessions. Students will have the opportunity to spend time with their family groups, who will spur each other on in their walks with the Lord, dive deep into scripture, and build close-knit community! A main goal of the retreat is to plug students into community in the form of a local church, campus ministries, and friendships before classes even start. There will be a ministry fair where our partnered churches and campus ministries will be there for students to ask questions, get to know them, and grab info. This will be a weekend of growth, fun, and friends!
