Breakout 1: Reaching Through the Screen - Students
Social media has completely changed the world in every way, shape and form. There are a million great things that come with it, but it also comes with some broken pieces. Depression, bullying, fear of missing out, unrealistic expectations, self-esteem rollercoasters and more. Once we understand this side of social media, we might also understand that we have a unique opportunity to reach through the screen and show love, and grace to others in this world.  

Breakout 2: This Generation - Leaders

The challenge with this Generation is not that they are leaving the church. The challenge with this generation is that they aren't stepping into the church. How did we get to this point? This workshop is going to look at what makes this young generation unique so we can better understand how to reach them.

My goal is to help you uncover areas in your life that are holding you back from experiencing this intimacy with Christ. 

Coming before God just as you are - imperfections and all. Inviting him into these hidden places of your heart, so He can get at the roots.

Breakout 1: Human Trafficking- What is it and how does it affect us? - Students

Exploitation is not a far off issue that only affects children in other countries. It is happening all around us and in hidden ways that you may not realize. Discover how to better understand the issue and how it can impact your life or those around you. Learning about human trafficking will help you identify things that could put you at risk including social media. All of us are at higher risk than we may realize and knowing how to recognize it gives you opportunity to help someone.

Breakout 2: How to raise kids in a world affected by human trafficking - Leaders

Meaningful conversations with youth can be the first step to prevention. Overwhelmingly youth affected by human trafficking report not feeling of value and are desperate for attention. Nationwide there has been an increase in youth impacted by this issue. It is happening all around us and is affecting youth of all ages. Discover the red flags and the way people use social media to lure youth into sex and labor trafficking. Being more educated and better identifying the issue allows you to have an impact and be an advocate in the lives of youth. You can help keep our youth safe!
