The Living Stones is a 3 day, 2 night retreat housed at local churches in Troy. Students can expect to begin building a foundation for their christian walk at Troy University. Throughout the couple days, students will attend worship sessions, large sessions with speakers from local churches and ministries, and 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, all while making friends! A main goal of the retreat is to plug students into community in the form of friends, and a church. There will be a ministry fair where our partner churches and campus ministries will have booths for students to have the opportunity to get to know them, ask questions, and grab info. This will be a weekend of growth, fun, and friends!
