Take Time Away

Fall Retreats

Breakaway at New Life Ranch - Frontier Cove (NEW LOCATION!)
September 17-18, 2021

A fall tradition at JBU, every year hundreds of students take off for a weekend away from campus. It's a perfect time to get to know people you haven't yet met and know the ones you have met even better!  The weekend provides space to refocus on the Lord and rest after a busy start to the school year. Breakaway 2021 will feature teaching sessions with new University Chaplain, Keith Jagger, great small groups, incredible worship, and lots of fun activities at New Life Ranch’s lakeside camp, Frontier Cove.

Registration - coming soon

Spring Retreats

Women's Retreat at Camp Egan

Every spring semester, female students at JBU embark on a retreat for the purposes of spiritual growth, nurturing friendships, and getting away from the pressures of studies. Special activities are planned for the purposes of fostering creativity, prayer, and physical health. But most of all, the retreat is a great time to just be. 

Men's Retreat at Ponca Bible Camp

The men's retreat is an opportunity for the MEN of JBU to connect on a deeper level. We want to address relevant issues concerning our spiritual development. We have been called by God to be followers of Christ, and this weekend will be a time to further develop the character and integrity that are vital for this mission. It will be a great time to get away from campus to worship, to fellowship, and to grow deeper in our walk with the Lord as we have FUN! Did we mention FUN…'cause there will be lots of it.‚Äč
