SBA’s MegaTeen Retreat to feature McLeod

March 28-30 will be Sunshine Bible Academy’s annual MegaTeen Retreat. The speaker for this year’s retreat will be Jason McLeod, an actor recognizable for his featured roles in Sherwood Pictures’ films “Facing the Giants” and “Fireproof.”

In “Facing the Giants,” McLeod played Brock Kelly, “the kid who did the death crawl.”

In “Fireproof,” McLeod was the rookie firefighter the other firefighters had some fun with in the kitchen. But “Fireproof” is what really turned McLeod’s life around.

McLeod shares a powerful testimony of how his life was parallel with that of his character Brock. God used the movie in his life to show him how he was living a life of mediocrity as a teenager.

After the movie was made, McLeod went on to Georgia Southern University where he played for the Georgia Southern Eagles football team for 2 years.

Right before the release of the “Facing the Giants,” God called McLeod to step away from football to pursue the ministry.

McLeod has a unique gift of connecting with audiences of all ages due to his unbelievable energy and excitement for the Lord! He is on fire for God and desires for everyone else to be as well.

MegaTeen is a weekend retreat for teenagers, though parents and youth leaders are welcome to attend as well. Students must be accompanied by a sponsor. The weekend begins Friday evening and runs through Sunday morning. While the four sessions featuring McLeod are the focal points of the weekend, there are also plenty of other activities, including basketball, volleyball and ping pong tournaments.

Students interested in attending SBA are invited to attend a campus preview on Friday prior to the start of the retreat and campus tours are offered on Saturday afternoon as well.

“Our intention is for each attendee to have fun,” says SBA Superintendent Jason Watson, “but the real goal is for each one to grow in their relationship with the Lord.”

The cost for the weekend is $40. Please register by March 21.

Registration forms and additional information are available on SBA’s web site at www.sunshinebible.org.

SBA is located south of Miller.
