Friday Night Change Party
OCTOBER 14th 2016
The focus of Friday Night at Change Conference is to clearly share the GOSPEL of Jesus. The “party” atmosphere is designed as a fun, exciting, creative and an overall welcoming place for Christian students to bring their friends.
OCTOBER 15th 2016
The Saturday Conference offers a focus on leadership, equipping and empowering. We welcome Peter Yoon, Phil Cann & Mike Miller as the Keynote speakers with the Brooke Nicholls Band to lead in musical worship. We are looking forward to bringing back an additional time frame called 7- TALKS to bring a greater experience and opportunity for the Discussion Group leaders to communicate their specific topic.
Come to our Friday Night Change Party and/or Saturday Conference. Better yet – come for both.
Join us at Change Conference 2016 and discover how you can CHANGE YOUR WORLD!
