Kids’ Quest 2013

dorey, andrew & family 2013

Join us for our annual NBBI children’s retreat on September 27-28, 2013!

George MacDonald once wrote, “When we are out of sympathy with the young, then I think our work in this world is over.” At NBBI we believe that children are important to the Lord and our desire is to see them come to faith in Christ and grow in the Lord. For many years we have hosted an annual Kids’ Quest retreat. The kids swim, play games, interact with our students, sleep in the dorms and get to hear the Word of God clearly taught to them. The date for this year’s Kids’ Quest is September 27-28, 2013 and our guest speaker is Andrew Dorey with CSSM. Plan on sending your children to us for this full-filled weekend.

Our guest speakers are Andrew & Tanya Dorey. Andrew and Tanya were both raised in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley where they were active in children’s ministries for many years. After feeling God calling them into full-time ministry, Andrew left his job as a technician in the textile industry to work on his Bachelor of Ministries degree. Seeing a real need for children’s ministry within Atlantic Canada, Andrew and Tanya joined CSSM Ministries in January of 2003 to do itinerant children’s ministry. Andrew is currently the Assistant to the Atlantic Branch Director and works part-time as a Children’s Pastor.
