May 5 at 9am


The Apex Building (2435 Hopkins Road, Getzville, NY 14068)


The Amplify Retreat is day designed to bring together Worship and Creative Arts teams (designers, lighting techs, sound techs, worship teams, student ministry worship teams, etc.) from all over WNY to focus on how we relationally connect with those we serve with, our congregation and our community. There will be large group portions along with breakout sessions that will help to create a learning environment where we focus on building up different skill sets within each team.
