On May 3-4, 2019 Northwest Baptist youth, friends, and youth leaders will gather for our annual NWBC Student Conference. This event for junior and senior high youth and sponsors will be held at Pathway Church in Gresham, Oregon. Our theme this year is “Momentum.”
Our featured speaker this year will be BRENT CROWE from Orlando, Florida. Brent is a gifted communicator who loves students and has a genuine heart and a passion to see students come to Christ and grow in their faith. Brent Crowe is currently serving as Vice President with Student Leadership University. Read more about him here http://www.slulead.com/slu-staff/brent-crowe-ph-d/ .
Our worship band this year is the Pathway Band. They are a gifted, multi-ethnic band that will do an outstanding job leading. You’ll be excited to meet them all in person at the conference!
For our Late Night Fun this year we will feature a concert by the band Beautiful Eulogy. Beautiful Eulogy is a Portland, Oregon based group made up of artists Braille, Odd Thomas and Courtland Urbano. The group introduces a distinct and directive sound that’s driven by a desire to worship and glorify the God of the Bible, based in the context of its’ members, hip hop roots and shaped by influences like electronic music, folk songs and old hymns. I guarantee your students will love this concert. For more info on Beautiful Eulogy check out https://humblebeast.com/artists/beautiful-eulogy/.
The cost for this year’s conference will be $50 per person. This includes conference fee, Saturday lunch and Friday nights’ concert. Those who pre-register by April 8th will receive a FREE Student Conference T-Shirt. We have made an agreement with Gresham area hotels for discounted accommodations and a few free “sleep on the floor” local church arrangements (see enclosed budgeting sheet). Everything you need to register is in this packet.
Encourage your students to invite their non-Christian friends. We will have several breakout electives to choose from this year that will be of interest to both believers and non-believers. We will offer breakouts for adult youth leaders as well. Each General Session will offer an opportunity for non-Christ followers to make Christ Lord of their life.
This is a short event in time but will have a lasting impression on your students. If you are traveling a long distance, I would encourage you to make the most of your trip. Maybe work with a local church or ministry and allow your kids to serve Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Or maybe attend a local church and encourage or serve them while you are there. If this is something you are interested in please feel free to reach out and I will connect you the best I can. Looking forward to having you.
See ya there!
