Who:

What:

YouthCon 2016, “From Suffering to Glory”

Why:

This year’s conference is focused on understanding our suffering through the lens of God’s Word. Being a Christian is not meant to be easy, nor is the Christian life meant to be a naive one. Jesus taught us that we will experience suffering, yet it is with great hope as look forward in anticipation of the glory to come. What meaning does Christ’s suffering and glory have for us as we experience suffering? Rather than our faith being shipwrecked during suffering, we need to be anchored to the goodness and sovereignty of God, and understand what He is doing. We need the wisdom of God's Word to teach us how we ought to be in the midst of our suffering. And last, we need to see our suffering in the context of the grand sweep of redemptive history as all of creation is moving from suffering to glory.

Registration and Payment:
