Youth Worker’s Connection in MIDWINTER

One thing I look forward to more than anything else is our encounter. There is nothing like seeing you at Midwinter, and what God intends for us. So many lives are changed by the power of God. What an amazing God we serve!

On that note, check out what we have planned for Youth Workers Connection in Midwinter. 

Drumroll, Please

Awakenings Awakenings are opportunities to connect with God and others. Some are scheduled for the early morning, when were literally wiping the sleep from our eyes. Others remind us that any time of day might be perfect for awakening our souls to Gods invitations to us and to alertness for Gods activity around us.
