Every Nation Campus Conference

February 2nd - February 3rd, 2018

$85

This conference is open to ALL high school juniors and seniors, college students, and non-students ages 18 to 25. We will be traveling to Jacksonville, Florida on Feb. 2-3 (Fri-Sat) to get away from the busyness of life and school and focus on the Lord.

Jesus came declaring that the kingdom of God had come. The kingdom of God is where God reigns. It begins in our hearts as we put our faith in Jesus, and radiates outward into our society. God calls us to partner with Him in establishing His Kingdom on earth. This means we have an important role to play in bringing God’s solution, the gospel, to this broken world. Every year that we attend this conference, students' lives are forever changed and transformed by the power of God. We would love for you to join us.

Here are a few details: We will depart In Focus Church around 12ish on Friday, Feb. 2 and return to the church between 12-2am on Saturday night. Students may need to miss school due to departure time. More specific details pertaining to departure time will be given out as we get closer to the event and have a better idea of the conference starting time.

IMPACT Youth Purity Weekend

February 9th - February 10th, 2018

Purity Weekend is a special event where we, as a student body, set aside time to hear what God has to say about the topics of dating, sex, and romance in a culture that’s filled with contrary opinions.

We’ll gather together Friday night, February 9, at 6:30pm at In Focus Church for a time of worship and teaching, then break out into designated host homes specific to student's age and gender. We’ll spend the night at our host homes and have several devotional times around the topics of Biblical purity before meeting back at the church at 11:30am Saturday morning to be picked up by parents.

A pizza dinner will be provided on Friday night and breakfast will be provided at your host home Saturday morning.

The arena main design

The Arena 2018 - Men's Event

March 9th, 2018

The Arena is an opportunity for men to gather together in a relaxed setting to have fun, build relationships, and worship together.

We believe that all men have ‘fight’ in their hearts. It’s how we were made. The question is, what are we fighting for? A mercenary fights for his own benefit, but a warrior fights for a cause bigger than himself. We are called, as Christians, to be warriors for the sake of the Gospel.

Our hope is that while at The Arena, you will experience the depth of God’s love for you, as well as sense the urgency of the battle at hand for our own lives, our families, and our fellow brothers.

1 Timothy 6:11-12 says, "But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession before many witnesses.”

Real Men Fight!

The Arena is open to all men, including high school juniors and seniors. Registration not required. Mark your calendar now! Doors open at 6:30 pm.
