Remember when we were kids? Life was easy, our job was to play, and naps were encouraged. We were also encouraged to dream! The famous question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” caused us to imagine all that was possible. Many of us started ministry with that same mindset, dreaming about what was possible in our communities and beyond because of the gospel. No one starts out in ministry hoping to get caught up by the ins and outs of church drama, unhappy parents, and antagonistic students. Somehow challenges seem to get bigger and dreams virtually lost in the day to day of ministry.
But every once in a while, something comes along that interrupts our day, grabs our attention, and causes that GOD SIZED DREAM to awaken again. After all, the dream may be lost to our sight, but it is front and center in His heart. We believe that Summit 2018 will be one of those things that God will use, by His grace, to wake the dream that He put inside of you.
March 1st-3rd, 2018, is a weekend that we are praying Jesus will “AWAKEN WONDER” in each and every one of our hearts, as we continue on the mission of bringing the hope of Jesus to the students of our communities. Every detail is set up for you and your team to move forward in this mission; in heart, in strategy and with the tools you need. We believe that as God clarifies His dream in your heart, the students of your community will never be the same!
We’re excited to welcome back Keila Garza and her team to lead in worship. Together with Terry Parkman, Heath Adamson, and Micahn Carter, this weekend will empower you from every angle to live out what is possible with God.
We hope you are making plans to join us for this significant weekend in our Youth Network. We have been praying for you throughout this year and trust God will continue to do incredible things in the hearts of students across the Northwest!
We can’t wait to see you!
