ONEHEART YOUTH CONFERENCE
March 4 & 5, 2022
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, our OneHeart Conference theme is “Welcome Home”. When you choose to follow Jesus, you become part of the family! There are many things that the body of Christ is compared to, but the predominant reference is to the Family of God. Scripture teaches us that Jesus came to reveal God as a Father and invite us into His family. Healthy families do life together, love each other and engage with each other in trust and acceptance. Our goal for OneHeart is that students would leave with a deeper understanding of what it means to be part of the family of God and to begin to show them that your church community, your youth group specifically, is a safe place that they can call home.
What Does It Look Like?
Small Groups: Students break up into into small groups of peers to discuss, connect, and foster personal relationships.
Epic Activities: This year we have a massive laser tag course, basketball, inflatables, gaga ball, and more! Plus an in-house coffee lounge with specialty drinks, and board games.
Dynamic Speakers & Specialized Breakout Sessions: Partnering with our main sessions, we have specialized breakouts where students can choose a topic that relates to them. These sessions are designed to equip students in a practical and age-appropriate way.
Take advantage of the current registration rates! Rates increase the day of the conference. Interested in volunteering? We have many opportunities available to impact our youth at this conference. Sign up to come to the conference or as a volunteer.
