VacFest is J-Life SA’s Summer Disciplemaking Festival for church YOUTH groups. The event is a partnership with the local church and is led by youth workers from various churches. It creates a platform for youth workers to minister to their teens through daily church groups & devotions. It helps youth have fresh encounters with Jesus and mobilizes them to love God, love people and make disciples in everyday life and ministry. VacFest is filled with great fun in the sun, fellowship, sports, corporate worship, food, Bible teaching, workshops and more. It is held annually at Camp Eden, Driefontein, Mpumalanga in the first week of December.

BREAKAWAY is J-Life SA’s YOUNG ADULT retreat for Young Adults. The event is a partnership with the local church and is facilitated by a core group of Young Adults from various churches. It enables Young Adults who are active in ministry and usually on the “giving end” of kingdom work to be refreshed, renewed and refocused for the kingdom agenda. BREAKAWAY enables them to have fresh encounters with Jesus and mobilizes them to love God, love people and make disciples in everyday life and ministry. BREAKAWAY was launched in August 2017 at YFC’s CYARA camp site in Magaliesberg. The event is filled with chill times, fellowship, social sport, hikes, corporate worship, great food & Bible teaching.
