Churches, youth leaders and
parents looking to get their teens pumped up in the faith will have
to look no further than Lincoln Christian University's second annual
The Vine Conference on April 4-5 on the LCU campus. This year's
theme, "We are all Witnesses," will take teens on a trek through the
dynamic life of Peter as found in the book of Acts.
The Vine Conference is an overnight retreat designed to challenge,
engage and refresh high school students in their faith. Check-in
starts at 4:30 p.m.
Last year more than 150 youth grabbed on to
The Vine, and LCU hopes more will take hold this year.
"It's all about helping students understand how Christ's story
makes their stories a part of His legacy and glory," said event
organizer Audrey Sackman, who serves as campus visits and
communication coordinator at LCU. "We want them to know that their
unique stories witness for Christ, even as teenagers."
LCU alumnus Nate Ross, currently an associate minister at
Northside Christian Church in New Albany, Ind., will be the keynote
speaker. Mitch Wright, a junior majoring in worship studies at LCU,
will lead worship. Interactive breakout sessions and discussions
will provide attendees with practical and often fun applications to
the conference's theme and message.
"We want to reach everyone, no matter where they are in their
faith," Sackman added.
