The Good News

Youth Conference

1. Have a great time!

Seriously, we want your teens to have a fantastic time at this conference. We are going to intentionally balance the spiritual with the fun, and purposefully create lots of space in our schedule for playing games, competing, laughing, eating treats, and making friends!

2. Grow in personal understanding and experience of the Gospel.

With everything teens are facing, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that the Good News of Jesus still changes lives. It hasn’t lost its power to heal the broken, free those who feel trapped, and restore those who have lost hope. 

At this youth conference we’ll discover why the message of Jesus is still Good News for each of us. And we’ll dream together about how we can share this good news in ways that can help the hurting, comfort the lonely, and maybe, just maybe, even change some lives.
