It is hard to believe that some of our Circle Drive Students will be headed to Life 2019 almost a year from now! The Life Conference is put together by our denomination, The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA), every three years for our youth throughout the country. There will be around 8,000-10,000 teenagers from different Alliance youth groups in one place to worship, grow, and serve God together as one family.
The theme for Life 2019 is "Awakened," ie: "awakened to an amazing Life in and through Jesus."1 Top Notch Speakers and Christian Artists will be there for the purpose of "Awakening" the next generation. They will do this by showing them that God wants to use them now, and that there is an entire nation of believers just like them. It is the desire of the leaders and speakers of the Life Conference to see the power of the Holy Spirit "Awaken" our students to what the Lord is trying to show them in their lives and to "Awaken" them to the potential that God has given them to make a lasting impact on this world.
Many other things happen on these trips. It will give another youth leader and myself a chance to further our connections with the students. We will be spending a week together worshipping, serving, and talking about God. There will be opportunities to discuss what is going on in their lives and what they think God wants them to do. This Conference is a time where God may use this event to open their minds and hearts to Him. After returning from Life, we as a church get the privilege of continuing to disciple the Next Generation of students, who desire to live a life for God!
Thank you for partnering with Circle Drive as we take this step to invest in these students.
Please be praying for the youth, that God will begin to work in their lives NOW by preparing their hearts for what He wants to show them and that we will see fully devoted followers of Christ growing and going forth from our church. May God "Awaken" the lives of the Next Generation so that they may come to know Jesus, thrive in their relationship with Him, begin to do more for Him, and launch new disciples for Jesus.
Pray also about how you might financially assist these students as they work to raise funding to go.
All for Jesus, Pastor Moe
