  • Believe 2020

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. That action happens at the point of CONTACT. It’s powerful. It’s motivational. It’s life-changing.


    The God of the universe wants to make CONTACT with us. He wants to impact our lives. And He provides access to His awesome power at any time and for all people through this wonderful thing called prayer. But what is prayer? How does it work? When should you do it? What words should you use?


    These are all questions that junior high students are asking. They have a hope that this mysterious God has power to affect their lives, but they aren’t sure how to talk to Him. Believe’s CONTACT tour will help young people all over the U.S. better understand the amazing gift of prayer and how it can make an impact on their lives.


    Prayer is powerful because God is powerful.


    Prayer is personal because God loves you.


    Pray anytime about anything because God is listening.


    Prayer is as varied as you are.


    Prayer is Kingdom work.


    The God of the universe is waiting ... are you ready to make CONTACT?

     


     

  • Superstart 2019

    SuperStart is a high-energy weekend event in Louisville, November 9-10, in which 4th-6th graders will learn and grow in their relationships with friends, leaders, and most importantly God.

    Cost: $85

    Registration Deadline: October 20


    Have you ever played a card game or board game and things just looked bleak? Sometimes when we get to the end of a game it seems impossible to win, but then we draw the “wild” card and suddenly it doesn’t matter what happens next. You know because of that “wild” card you can get through anything the game may throw at you. It completely changes the way you play. It gives you hope that you can win. It’s a Game Changer.

    A lot of preteens today are starting to feel like the odds are stacked against them. What do they do when they’re not sure how to get through what life throws at them?

    This year’s SuperStart tour is about finding hope in those moments through God’s promises. Preteens will learn that when they trust God and hold tightly to His promises, they’ll discover the hope that can carry them through any circumstance and into the abundant life of a Kingdom worker. Knowing that changes everything. It’s a Game Changer.
