Jude 1:3 says, "I felt compelled to write and urge you to CONTEND for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people." Our hope and desire is to help train the next generation to contend for and defend their faith in Christ amongst a culture who has a different agenda for their lives. This annual event will feature some of the best Christian speakers and entertainers in the country in order to challenge and encourage the next generation to take ahold of the purpose they are called to as the Church. Through high energy, engaging worship, speaking, and workshops we will instruct and inspire students to think Biblically in some of the biggest topics being talked about and discussed in our world.
