The Calling is an annual conference for both student and adult leaders looking to serve and be equipped to lead youth where ever they are in their walk with Christ. Check out our previous conferences here.
This year, our theme will be Restoring the Broken; we’ll be seeing how the message of the gospel works to heal our relationships and change us from the inside out. Nathan Morgan Locke (author of Christianity Explored’s Soul DVD) will be leading our main session and a few breakouts as we explore this concept together along with how it works in our ministries.
We would encourage you to bring your fellow youth leaders as well as the parents of your students and students who have potential for leadership to train and grow them together towards a greater love of Christ and His Word.
When: Saturday, April 13, 2013 (see the schedule, below).
Cost: $10 per person; $8 per person for groups of 10 or more (Please fill out the registration form below the schedule). And if at this point you are wondering, “What’s in it for me?” Here is your answer.
