NEW Primary Color

“The gospel must be preached afresh & told in new ways to each generation since every generation has its own unique questions. The gospel must constantly be forwarded to a new address because the recipient is repeatedly changing his place of address.”

- Helmut Thielicke

The 2020 Educator's Conference is Something NEW - A Hybrid Experience

Sadly, we will not be gathering at Beaver Run this year, but we are excited about a program full of great content and a new approach. We so much value the opportunity to gather for encouragement, fellowship, and professional development that we have been developing a hybrid conference experience. Hybrid events connect live and virtual audiences and as has become our practice, we will work to foster intentional conversations and build programs with real life application in mind. 

We are planning a high quality, one day event at each location.

Mark your calendars now for Friday, October 16th. You won't want to miss this. 

Registration details will be communicated soon.

Generation Z Unfiltered: Facing the Hidden Realities in the Most Anxious Population

Back by popular demand, we will be joined again this year by Mr. Andrew McPeak.  Andrew is a member of the team at Growing Leaders, a nonprofit that encourages and equips the youngest generations to take on real-life opportunities and challenges.  Last year Andrew helped us to realize that in order to help inspire students to navigate our word today, we needed to "March Off the Map" and find and use new "maps" to lead and guide them in an ever-changing world.
 
This year Andrew will help us to understand the challenges facing our youngest generation, a generation that is both the most empowered and yet the most anxious in history.  Andrew will help walk us through these challenges, helping us to see how we can harness their special strengths, and provide practical action steps on how we can lead them into healthy, productive lives.
