Julian Newman

Rev. Julian NewmanJulian is the Lead Pastor and Creative Architect of a growing community of believers at Foothill Community Church located in the greater Sacramento region. He previously served as a college pastor in Grand Rapids, MI. He and his wife have three daughters. In his words, “By living in an ‘all female’ environment, I have learned to do what I am told, be quick in the bathroom, and that I don’t have the fashion sensibility and awareness that I thought I did. But it’s okay: I have 4 women to help me.” He blogs at

Earl Creps

Rev. Earl CrepsWith two earned doctorates and proven ministry fruitfulness, Earl has a unique combination of academic pedigree and practical savvy. So he and his wife are planting a church where those two streams come together: Berkeley, CA. Earl has a heart to help young leaders grow and wherever he ministers always finds himself surrounded by a crowd of twentysomethings. He blogs at


CSU Stanislaus Chi Alpha worship team Worship this year will be led by the CSU Stanislaus / UC Merced Chi Alpha worship team. They're fiercely Spirit-led and yearn to lead college students into a dynamic encounter with the living God.



We're at a new facility this year: Alliance Redwoods Bible Camp. If you've been to our retreats before, you're going to love this new facility even more than our old site. The meeting room is ideal, there are plenty of recreational options (including indoor basketball, volleyball, and raquetball courts), and meals are included. Notice that last bit again - meals are included in the price of registration this year. Woot! You'll be staying in 8 person cabins and will need to bring your own linens for a twin bed. Get a map.
