Spiritual Emphasis Retreat

Students lifting their hands in worship during chapel

Coastal Christian School strives to help prepare students to serve God in all of life.  The school’s desire is to see this accomplished through the classroom, chapels, staff/student interactions, scheduled extra curricular activities, and through a special yearly event for our 7th – 12th graders known as the Spiritual Emphasis Retreat.


Spiritual Emphasis Retreat is a two-day, school-sponsored retreat that takes place once a year in the fall to encourage a spiritual renewal in the life of the student.  Spiritual Emphasis Retreat is held locally at Lopez Canyon Conference Center which is a Christian camp and retreat facility located near Lopez Lake on 40 acres in the beautiful Los Padres National Forest.


This retreat is intended to help our students encounter God in a special way that will positively influence transformation in their hearts and minds throughout the school year and beyond.  The Spiritual Emphasis Retreat cultivates intimate fellowship between classmates in a relaxed and enjoyable Christian environment drawing, them closer to one another, and ultimately, to God.
