A Generational Call to PURPOSE!
Every generation has trend setters, difference makers, and leaders who have become agents for change. The current and future generation of believers are called to impact not only "church" culture but also "world" culture. To be effective, today's young believers must be equipped to boldly proclaim their faith in ministry and in market places; in Sunday school and in public schools; in the sanctuary and in the streets. This requires a unique set of skills, impartation, and inspiration. THE CALL is a gathering designed to expose the future generation of believers to creative ministry mindsets that produce influence in the world and expand the Gospel's reach. There are three main objectives for this conference:
- To inspire young believers to find their voice and purpose.
- To expose young believers to creative methods of influence.
- To provide a space for young creatives to network, share, and create.
The conference will feature keynote speakers the evening of Friday July 28, 2023 and Saturday July 29, 2023 with a few break out sessions Saturday morning.
