The Forge Retreat is a 3-day, 2-night retreat for incoming freshman and transfer students at UAB, Samford, and BSC. At the retreat, students will have the chance to get to know ministries and churches in the Birmingham area. They will be connected with upperclassmen and other students and encouraged in their walks with Christ...all before their first day of class!
The Forge Retreat seeks to glorify the Lord in every aspect of its existence by welcoming incoming freshman and transfer students to Birmingham. We want to show them a glimpse of the local body of Christ, connect them to community, and equip them to serve our campuses and beyond.
Retreats at other schools
