What's Happening

The BeDoTell fall retreat is designed for 7th through 12th graders to get away for a weekend of worship and Bible study with other students from across North Carolina. We have two weekends to choose from and look forward to your group joining us this fall at Fort Caswell!

Theme: Addicted to Distraction

Students, you are the first generation to be more connected yet growing more distant. Always online, yet complaining of constant boredom. How does this affect your spiritual walk? Tweets and 40 characters only. Join us as we discuss all the things that pull us away from who we are really made to be.

The retreat will feature a guest speaker with worship led by our own BeDoTell Team and will include small group sessions, recreation and church group devotions.


Garrett was born in Dallas, TX and raised in central Louisiana and a pastor’s son. At the age of 12 he realized that  neither his parents, religion, nor a denomination could save him from a life of sin, death, and darkness but only Jesus Christ could do that so he gave his life to Jesus in his living room. At the age of 16 he surrendered to full-time ministry at a youth camp and began preaching the good news at the age of 17. 

Garrett received a B.A. in Biblical Studies and a M.A. in ministry from Criswell College in Dallas, TX. Garrett has passion for the Gospel and wants to see it passed down to this generation and the generations after. He is currently serving at the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention as the Student Ministry Associate where he oversees all of student ministry and directs student camps and conferences. He resides in Dallas, TX with his wife Rachel of 4 years and his white toy poodle named Si.


The retreat begins with welcome and worship at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and concludes on Sunday at 11:15 a.m. following worship. Here is a typical schedule for the weekend.
