We are READY to worship and grow with YOU!
We have spent the last year in a season of disconnect through many personal challenges and circumstances. Through it all we were reminded of why God calls us to be connected in all aspects of life and that we are all inter-connected in God’s intentional actions. So, join us at WS21 as we explore the many ways that we can reconnect to live out God’s call.
Winter Session Student Conference is designed for 7th – 12th grade students and youth leaders. We are committed to investing in the next generation to shape their calling and become a light to the world.
Our desire is to help youth come to know and believe that they are the beloved of God and to be a place where authenticity, community, connection through God’s truth thrive. We seek to be an inclusive space where each voice can be heard and where each heart can be molded; where change is invited, challenge is expected, and where all are embraced.
Worship & Teaching
Worship and teaching engage youth in the theme and challenges all in attendance to faith exploration and growth. Using scripture and worship; youth are affirmed and united as children of God. Following worship, there will be 4 main teaching sessions where we gather to hear the Word of God proclaimed.
Small Group Break-Out Sessions
Small group is a place where youth can share their journey of faith with peers through respectful conversations. Small group sessions are led by trained adult leaders who facilitate honest discussions about the themes presented in keynote and worship. It is an important time where youth can dive deeper into the conference theme, while forming bonds and making new friends!
Youth Leader Lab
Youth leaders we’re not leaving you out, so we have something just for you! Round up your group and meet us at WS21. We understand that youth ministry is a blessing but can also be very challenging. There will be specific youth leader lab held during each student small group breakout sessions. We look forward to meeting you and sharing great insight to invest in you personally and your youth ministry. Not only will you have the opportunity to build your network for encouragement, but we have many tools and ideas to help you be the very best in the calling God has placed on your life!
We engage youth and their leaders physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to build up the Christian community while having fun! We believe that people who can play together can pray together; people who can sing together can talk together; and people who can have fun together can walk together.
It’s going to be so good to be together!
Planning to Gather
You are our very special guest and as we plan to be together for WS21, we want this opportunity to be fun, encouraging and safe. The past year has taught us all a lot, but it has also reinforced our belief in the value of being together as the body of Christ!
To say the least, WS21 will be different! With COVID19 in mind we encourage the practice of good hygiene and wearing of face mask if you choose. Also, please keep others in mind when planning to attend. As bad as we want to see you, if you are sick or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID19 within 14 days of WS21, then we ask that you to please plan to stay home.
We will update you as plans develop via email and on this page.
