What is
The Oaks Retreat?

The Oaks is a summer retreat for incoming freshmen at Auburn University. Each freshmen will be led by a counselor in a group of about 4-6 other freshmen. They will attend main sessions taught by different pastors and campus ministers at Auburn, and they will have the chance to have intentional time with their counselors and group after the sessions.

“…that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.” -Isaiah 61:3


The mission of The Oaks Retreat is to equip freshmen to be rooted in Christ, to branch out in ministry, and to bear fruit on Auburn’s campus through His power and for His glory.
