You've been a Christian for a year, five years or maybe since you were a kid. You've gone to church for a while, or you've been in and out of church. Chances are, for most of you, everything has become a routine.

Is there more to Christianity than all you've experienced so far?

Calling all campus students and youths for a time of refreshment. We're gathering innovators and forerunners to rethink "evangelism" and "discipleship". Let's see the world sit up because of the Gospel once again.

Refresh. Rethink.

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

- Jesus Christ -

Plenary Sessions

Relevant Truth

In this “progressive” age, is the gospel still relevant?
Learn how the gospel message still makes sense to your
generation and has the power to change reality. 

Relevant Truth: Lived Out

As a youth in church, do you feel understood and cared for?
When the image of the ‘good Christian boy/girl’ is stripped
away, what’s left? If you have experienced deep heartaches
in Church, be revived in your heart once again. 

Making a Case for Jesus Christ

It seems easy to be ridiculed for my faith as a Christian
in this day and age, creating feelings of
helplessness and shame. Learn to make a case for
Jesus Christ and be confident advocates
for Him to your friends. Gain handles to respond intelligently,
with humility and grace. 

Innovation in Evangelism

Beyond relevance, the Church has to harness fresh and
powerful ways in reaching out to others.
To finish the task Jesus left us and see the gospel reach
every tribe and tongue takes radical innovation.
Let’s discover how we must think and spread the Word differently. 

Radical Faith

Millennials and Gen Zs are already making a radical difference
in the world today. Has a new era of global missions
begun? What can we learn from Church history to
avoid critical pitfalls that
kill Christian movements?
