Battle for Your Seed: Protecting What You've Built

YOUTH WORKERS

If we build them they Will Come

Youth workers will be equipped with the tools and resources needed to construct their youth ministries and organize their programming. There is a science to every approach. You will leave with a conviction and receive the necessary insights to take the impossibilities that were once in your mind into the land of possibility.

TRACK SESSIONS

STUDENTS

We Smoke Youth Conference

Teens can be on fire for the Lord, but what is more important is that other teens can smell the smoke from what God is doing in their lives. Teens will leave knowing that the fire burning from within is not just for themselves but for other young people in their lives. Acts 2:15
