The goal of this conference is to see disciples multiply throughout the world in whatever spheres they live and work. We want to see our believing international students empowered, equipped and encouraged to be disciples who make disciples. Each main session will show how God is working in each of the 7 spheres of influence: religion, family, business, science & industry, art & entertainment, government and education. Students can pick different tracks to follow throughout the conference like discipleship, ethnomusicology, etc. A huge piece of this conference will be the life groups where students will be put together with others from a similar sphere to process and connect, hopefully far beyond the end of the conference.
This conference is for believing international students who desire to help grow God's Kingdom in their own context. We are looking for students who are teachable and have a heart for God. This conference will encourage and equip students to be disciples who make disciples.
This conference is also for staff, min reps, and volunteers who are in a discipleship or mentorship relationship with said student or students. The conference will provide training in mentorship and releasing students into spiritual leadership specifically for mentors and there will be set aside times for mentors and mentees to connect during the conference.
The conference will begin with dinner at 6pm Thursday, December 28th 2023 and will end the 2nd of January 2024.
