Renew Student Conference March 6-7, 2020 in Wilmington, Delaware
Check out the highlights from last year’s Renew Conference.
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 2020 is United. We are all UNITED in Christ. We have an incredible privilege as believers to follow God, yet too often we narrow our focus to just our church building or just our group. As believers we need to be UNITED in Christ in such a way that it impacts every part of our lives, from race, politics, relationships, our communities and more.
The cost of the conference is $40 per person but we are offering an early-bird discount of $25/person through Sunday, February 23, 2020. Lunch on Saturday is included! Registration is open. Register now.(You will be taken to a third-party website we use for event registration: bvbc.ccbchurch.com.) Registration CLOSES on Monday, March 2, 2020.
|Propaganda, a hip-hop artist, will perform a concert on Friday night. He will also speak on Saturday morning in the Main Session. With LA flowing through his veins & armed with a bold message, Propaganda has assembled a body of work that challenges and guides. Propaganda’s ideas stem from where he sits at the intersection. He sees how cultures cross and inspire one another, and can see the oneness of us all. Propaganda will cause you to nod your head, but more importantly he will stretch your mind & heart. Check out his website.||
