Young Adult Ministry 2023 Conference



Conversations on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

Join us for a thought-provoking exploration of the significance of our identity – created male and female in the image of God.  How has the Fall marred the divine blueprint?  In what ways is God restoring His design as we grow in relationship with Him and with each other.

Throughout history, humanity has grappled with questions of identity, purpose, and the role of gender in society. Our conference aims to foster meaningful conversations that draw from the depths of God’s Word to shed light on these sensitive issues.

Our diverse lineup of speakers will share their wisdom and experiences, providing valuable insights into how we can collectively work towards restoring God's good design in our lives and communities.  If you are looking for guidance on how to live out this truth in your daily life, this conference offers a space for meaningful conversations and reflection.
