SEARCH: The Best Kept Secret in the Diocese of Raleigh

What is Search?

Search is a peer-led retreat weekend sponsored by the Diocese of Raleigh that touches people’s lives because it encourages participants to seek and find Christ in them and in one another. It is a series of witness talks and activities prepared and given by a team of high school youth. The weekend gives you the opportunity to look at your faith and life in a new way.


Who goes to Search?

10th, 11th, and 12th graders, and adults who work with them, who want to be a part of an exciting and different weekend attend a Search Retreat. People participate in the Search program for various reasons. Some go to experience something different, others to meet and spend time with people their own age. Some have a strong faith while others are questioning God’s existence. Don’t let nervousness stand in the way of a special weekend. Please join us for an experience that will be long remembered.


When is Search?

The first date for the 2109-2020 year has been announced…

November 15-17, 2019

The weekend begins promptly at 7:30 on Friday night (participants are asked to arrive no later than 7:00 p.m. to settle in) and concludes at approximately 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Please note that elements of the Search weekend build upon one another, and therefore participants are asked to commit to the entire weekend without plans to arrive late, leave early, or leave the retreat at any point during the weekend.


Where is Search held?

All retreats for the 2019-2020 year will take place at Camp Dixie, outside Fayetteville, NC.


How much is it to attend?

Cost for the Search Weekend is $60.  Members of The Life only pay 50% of the total cost, $30 for youth participants.
No one is ever denied participation because of inability to pay.


Go to Search and you’ll…

Open yourself up without the judgment of others.
Make lifelong friendships.
Receive moral support from people you’ve just met.
Grow in your faith and self-confidence.
Have the opportunity to become a leader and help others.
Spend a weekend with people who love you for who you are.
Never listen to some songs the same way again!

Campus Life

Campus_Life_logo_red

“Campus Life is a non-denominational effort to make a positive impact on the lives of teens. More specifically, Campus Life is a ministry of Youth For Christ that The Life and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church are active supporters of. I strongly encourage that anyone that attends a school that hosts a club to give it a try.”

Michael Smith

Why Campus Life?

As part of the body of Christ, our vision is to see every young person in every people group in every nation have the opportunity to make an informed decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ and become a part of a local church

We believe Campus Life is the best way to reach middle school and high school teens in their world.  It gives us a strategic way to pursue young people at local schools throughout the Fayetteville Area and in communities all over the USA.

What is Campus Life?

Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools.  Like every ministry of YFC, Campus Life seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.  Campus Life is a place for high school and middle school students to have fun, make friends and talk about what matters.  Campus Life provides a balanced approach – physical, mental, social and spiritual – to give teens the skills and hope they need to live in a turbulent world.

How Does Campus Life Work?

3Story

First it is important to note that Campus Life focuses heavily upon relational evangelism.  In that regard, we teach and model 3Story.  3Story is a way of life that guides followers of Christ to BE good news while telling stories of THE good news.  It is natural, friendly, and freeing – as you abide in Christ, His love flows through you to others as you journey together.

The 5 essential values we filter everything through in Campus Life.

Widespread Prayer
Loving Relationships
Faithful Bible Teaching
Adults Who Empower
Collaborative Community Strategy

Relational Ministry Actions – CL staff build loving relationships through the balanced practice of six Relational Ministry Actions:

Contacting – going into the world of young people in order to initiate new relationships

Building Times – spending time in shared activities with young people in order to build new relationships and model Christ-like behavior (includes trips and events)

Appointments – meeting one on one to provide individual attention and focus on a young person’s specific need

Small Groups – a structured interactive meeting with 4-6 young people

Club – a weekly large group meeting of more than 15 students that’s high energy, safe, and non-Christian friendly

Student Leadership – Christian students who are committed to personal growth and influencing people around them for Christ
