Poiema OBX 2021
What is Poiema?
“Poiēma” is the term that the Apostle Paul uses in Ephesians 2:10 to describe the church as God’s workmanship. The church, you and I, are God’s beautiful creation.
If you are a single Christian young adult (18-28 years old), then Poiema was started just for you. We believe that you need to realize everyday that you are vitally important to the church, and we want to challenge and encourage you to serve the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart—for the rest of your life.
At the retreats you can expect your heart to be challenged. Your devotion to Christ, acknowledging His preeminence in all of life, will be examined and encouraged. Our desire is that you leave, with more joy and confidence to serve the Lord in your local church. “For we are His workmanship (poiema), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
Enjoy meeting other young adults from churches all over the country and bonding with them over good food, fun activities, and beautiful locations. Whether you watch the sunrise over the ocean together or experience the thrill of a mountain bike ride with new friends, you can expect to form friendships here that will last a lifetime.
None of us are called by Jesus to ‘go it alone’ .
It is easy to lose sight of the work that God is doing in our lives when we are caught in the daily grind. When we gather at Poeima for morning and evening worship, lectures, singing, and simply enjoying one another’s company, we are reminded of the bond that we share in the Church and the goodness of the God that we serve.
