2023 fall banquet

coldwater canada fall Banquet

Monday, November 20th 2023

On Monday, November 20th we will be gathering the Coldwater Canada community to enjoy good food, share ministry updates and celebrate how God is changing lives through Coldwater. 

This past year, we took a deep dive through an intensive research project to discover the long-term impact of wilderness adventures in the lives of young adults aged 18–25. At our 2023 Fall Banquet, we will be celebrating this impact by sharing our findings through compelling stories of those who have experienced this long-term impact first hand! If you have ever wondered, "What are the benefits of wilderness programs?" or "How do wilderness adventures impact lives in the long-term?" come to our Fall Banquet to find out!
