READY Youth Conference

Amidst a culture shifting like the tide, it is imperative that students are ready to defend “the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3). To that end, mark your calendars for READY, a student conference held virtually on January 30, 2021.

We will be walking through the book of Jonah for the duration of the event. This conference features the following guest speakers: Sam Bierig, Jared Bumpers, Jordan Wade, and Jared Wilson. Additionally, we will host worship throughout the conference.

As a blessing to you, every group will receive a gift box.

Jared is not a catalytic “agent of change” or a visionary anything. He is a failed church planter and once made a mess of his marriage. He likes food too much and worries way too much about what people think, and he’s definitely not all that he’s cracked up to be. After 20 years of ministry, he’s mainly learned that he’s kind of a nincompoop. But he knows Jesus loves him.
