December Encounter Student Conference 2018
November 30, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - December 2, 2018 @ 1:00 pm EST$120
ENCOUNTER Student Conference is not your typical weekend conference experience. It’s a life-giving, transformative encounter with God and others. Students and leaders will come face to face with God in His Word in community with others and by its power, the Word will transform them.
Over the course of the conference, you will study together through the 40 Minute study, Spiritual Warfare: Overcoming the Enemy. Whether you realize it or not, you live amid spiritual battle. God’s enemy, Satan, is deceptive, destructive and determined to keep you from effectively serving God. To defend yourself against his attacks, you need to know how he operates and what victory could be yours in Jesus Christ.
This weekend your time will be spent in Scriptures to gain a thorough knowledge of Satan’s tactics and schemes. As you discover the truth about him—including the limits of his power—you will be equipped to stand firm against his attacks and encouraged by the truth that Jesus has ultimate authority and has overcome the enemy. You will be challenged by biblical teaching, introduced to (or strengthened in) inductive Bible study in small groups, and encouraged to grow in your understanding of God and how His Word transforms hearts and lives.
This conference is designed for students ages 12-18 (6th-12th grades) and adult leaders. Students must be 12 years old by date of the conference. An adult leader might be a pastor, youth volunteer, parent, family friend, etc. This leader will be responsible for the students he or she brings to the event. The group ratio requirement is 3-6 students per 1 leader.
We understand that some students may not have a group to come with but would love the opportunity to attend this event. Good news – Individuals can still attend! Individuals will be placed in small groups that consist of other students and a staff member so these students will get the same experience as those who come with a group.
We believe that gearing the conference toward small groups, adult leaders will be better equipped to disciple their students. Leaders will receive the 40-Minute study and an optional training video PRIOR to the event. In addition to this, leaders will be provided with training DURING registration and will get to see the first lesson modeled by an experienced trainer during the first small group discussion time. This training will equip leaders to lead their students through the remaining lessons.
Full ticket pricing is $120 beginning November 1-26, 2018
