Renew Student Conference March 8-9, 2019 in Wilmington, Delaware
Renew 2019 was awesome. Check back for information about Renew 2020!
The Renew Student Conference is a two-day event designed for all students in grades 6-12. The Conference is happening in Wilmington, Delaware (Get directions). With strong teaching, fun ice breakers, great worship, discussion breakouts, prizes, amazing music and comedy guests, it’s an event your students won’t want to miss!
The theme for Renew 2019 is Gifted and Called! Our students are extra-ordinary. We believe that this is true, even in the midst of their pain, mistakes, and general adolescent drama. And that is the beauty of our gracious God – that He not only can use us for His glory, but He has chosen to give gifts to His people so that they can be fully alive as His image bearers. As students learn that they are called to join God here on earth in His master plan to renew and restore all things, we hope that they will begin to value themselves, their decisions, and the rest of humanity. Our students will wrestle with questions such as:
*How do I define success?
*What am I passionate about?
*What does God want me to be or do?
