Adventure 2011 – NBBI Teen Retreats


Don’t miss this exciting and challenging annual event for young people ages 13 to 18 (grades 7-12). Teens will be involved in various indoor and outdoor activities such as relay games, three-on-three basketball, table games, tubing and more.

Our guest speaker, Wayne Heikkinen was born in rural Maine and received Christ at a Daily Vacation Bible School at the age of 6. His family was involved in their local church and upon Wayne’s graduation from Wayside Christian Academy, he enrolled at New Brunswick Bible Institute. At NBBI, Wayne met his life partner, Sandy and felt his call to ministry. Wayne spent time as a youth pastor in Nova Scotia and, for 23 years after that, represented Word of Life Local Church Ministries. In 2002, God led Wayne to Rock Mills Fellowship Baptist Church as Pastor. For the past years, Wayne has had the wonderful privilege of sharing in the revitalization process of this local church. The emphasis of spiritual leadership, biblical discipleship and equipping the saints produced a commitment to reaching out to the community. God has blessed this ministry. Wayne and Sandy make their home across the road from Lake Eugenia in Ontario and love to spend time with their 3 grown children (2 are married), 4 grandchildren and their dog and they enjoy gardening, landscaping, walking, travelling and entertaining.

You will also be hearing various NBBI faculty members, as they share from God’s Word during our class times and our NBBI musical groups as they share in song throughout these weekends.

The total cost for the retreat is $45 for teens and $15 for leaders. Space is limited, so register early!
