LIFT Winter Retreat
LIFT (Leaders Inspired For Truth) Winter Retreat is an opportunity for young adults age 18 (and high school graduate) through 28 to spend a weekend at Riverside learning biblical truths, discovering more about Him and becoming better equipped to serve Him in this present world. The key components of this weekend are personal reflection, group discussion, biblical teaching and worship sessions. The weekend also includes plenty of time to hang out with friends, play broomball, drink hot chocolate, and, of course, rest.
Meet Our Speaker
Pastor David Jackson lives with his wife Jaime, daughter Zoe, and son Isaiah in Waupaca, WI. Although originally from North-Eastern Wisconsin, he has come to call Central Wisconsin his home. Dave became a Christian at 8 years old in a Sunday School class and at age 12 knew that he was going to go into full-time missions.
Dave met his future wife, Jaime, while at Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL. They were married in June of 2000 and started their teaching careers. Dave was a music teacher for 4 years before the Lord called he and Jaime into full-time missions in China where they lived for three years and have visited multiple times since. In china, Dave’s love for sharing the Gospel and working with young people blossomed and he has been working in full-time ministry ever since.
Currently, Dave is a pastor at Faith Community Church in Waupaca, WI where he is in charge of worship, youth, and tech. Jaime and Dave also recently started a young adult group at the church and look forward to what the Lord is going to do with the group.
Dave has a passion for discipleship and growth in the Lord. He intentionally seeks to mentor those who are willing to learn and grow, having great joy when the fruit of the Spirit shines through in every facet of peoples’ lives.
