As we move into adulthood and begin taking ownership over the major decisions and responsibilities coming our way, it can feel...overwhelming. What am I doing? Where am I heading? Does anyone else feel the way I do? These questions and more can leave us keenly aware of the weight and pressure of being a young-adult. Avalanche is a conference and retreat designed to connect you with other people working through the same adventure you find yourself in the middle of, help you form deeper relationships, and give you courage and clarity as you seek to cling to God during the chaos of life.
