Theme: Unshakable Kingdom
Can you imagine what it's like to be completely confident in your faith, all the time? Unmoved by others rebukes and lies. Where you stand so strong that people come to you for answers and when they do, you're ready. The fears and terrors of the world do not terrify you. Your voice has power and shakes the deceit from around you, you aren't won over by the Enemy. You belong to an Unshakable Kingdom. Built on Jesus, the One and Only King who directs you to quiet the storms and make still the chaos. This Kingdom is absolute, it's eternal, this Kingdom is the mightiest that will ever be, and it's love is conquering this world and bringing the world's weakest and strongest to their knees. Learn more about the unshakable kingdom that YOU are in!
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.” (Heb. 12:28-29)
How will sleeping arrangements work for First MB Students?
All students and leaders stay in pre-approved people's homes in the surrounding communities of the church. When you register you will be agreeing to stay in these homes. Each student will be with their small groups and never alone in a person's home.
Can my student drive him/herself / arrive late or leave early?
For insurance purposes, church policy, and safety, in general, we will not allow any First MB Student to drive him/herself during the conference. A student may leave their vehicle at the church for the weekend.
