The message this year is focused on relationships. John Stonestreet (of the Colson Center) will kick off the conference on Sunday evening by looking at how God created us to be relational with inherent value shared by everyone. Strategies for healthy relationships will be addressed by Ken Sande (of Relational Wisdom 360). Other energetic sessions will follow keying in on issues of race, forgiveness, social media/technology, and our hyper-sexualized culture. Our expectation is that students will leave the conference with a biblical understanding of the importance of relationships and practical steps to maintain and develop healthy relationships within their families, Christian community, and beyond. Groups will leave the conference having had the opportunity to dialogue and fine-tune healthy relational skills together as leaders.
