ONEHEART YOUTH CONFERENCE
March 5 & 6, 2021
WHAT IS ONEHEART?
OneHeart Conference is a power-packed weekend full of connection, excitement, and encounters with God. It is a place where 6th – 12th grade students come to build relationships, become equipped, and be inspired to live as passionate disciples of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to bring students together with ‘One Heart’ and with one accord to encounter God and leave empowered to make a difference in the world.
This year, the focus of OneHeart Conference is “We Follow Jesus”. It is a back-to-basics, call to action, to embrace that Jesus is Lord. In a world full of idols and options, what does it look like to worship, submit to, and ultimately follow Jesus above all else? That’s the question we’re going after this year at OneHeart Conference.
Our goal this year is that students would leave with a deeper understanding and revelation of what it means to follow Jesus and that they would be inspired to do so. Our hope is that every student who attends experiences the true freedom that is found in submission to Jesus as the Lord of our Lives and the King of Heaven and Earth.
Small Groups: On the first night of the conference, students are broken up into small groups of their friends, peers, and leaders. After each session, they meet as a group to discuss and connect. This brings a deeper relational component to OneHeart that sets this conference apart.
Fun Activities: Our activities this year will include pottery painting, glow dodgeball, trike racing, canvas painting, mini-golf, volleyball, basketball and concourse games.
Dynamic Speakers & Specialized Breakout Sessions: In addition to our dynamic speakers (more details below), we have specialized breakouts where students can choose a topic that relates to them. This year’s sessions are all themed with the idea of following Jesus in a specific ‘life path’. The session options include: “Following Jesus in the Creative Arts”, “Following Jesus in Business”, “Following Jesus in Raising a Family”, and “Following Jesus with Your Whole Life”.
