 Sponsored by the Western New York District of the Wesleyan Church, Refresh is an affordable vacation for families or individuals. Whether you come for just a day or stay for the entire week, this is an event you won't want to miss!! 

Refresh is week long retreat with a variety of activities designed just for you! This "vacation with a purpose" focuses on giving you opportunities to relax and be still in God's presence, to reconnect with family and friends, and to rejuvenate your body and spirit. 

2015 Evening Rally Speaker: AJ Thomas

AJ is a graduate of Kingswood University with a BA in Religion and is an ordained minister in the Wesleyan Church. In 2007 he planted Deep Water Church in Halifax Nova Scotia and is currently leading a re-launch of Pathway Church in Bangor, Maine.  He was born on a little island off the cost of Maine and grew up in small town New Brunswick, where he played some very poor basketball and ran around in the woods a lot.  His favorite color is grey, which makes him sound boring, but he's really a pretty fun guy.  He's married to Kelly and has two sons, Micah and Isaac, and two Boston Terriers, Sam and Ava.  He's always up for an adventure, likes pretty much anything that has to do with acoustic guitars, loves a good laugh, and driving his Jeep.

2015 Evening Worship Leader: Chris Stephens

Chris has been leading worship since he was eighteen years old, his journey beginning in Atlantic Canada as a member of Present Reality and Three Season Ant. Three Season Ant toured extensively throughout Canada & the United States, winning 4 GMA’s and releasing two full length albums: 2 days After Yesterday & Redefined Logic. He is currently serving as the Worship Pastor at Crosswinds Wesleyan Church in Canandaigua, NY with his wife Megan and two children Caleb and Myla. Chris’ heart is to see Jesus be the center of our worship as we sing psalms, hymns, spiritual songs and most importantly in all that we do, in word or in deed, that we’d do everything in the name of Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
