Hey, Free Methodist youth leaders! We can’t wait to hang out for a week next summer in Orlando, Florida, at the General Conference 2019 Youth Summit. We have always offered some kind of student element at General Conference but this year we are coming together to offer a new kind of experience for students in grades 7-12.
Students will be able to have somewhat of a “choose-your-own-adventure” experience, all the while experiencing what it means to be a part of the global Free Methodist Church. We will have worship sessions together in the morning with some energetic music, some crazy-awesome games, and some great teaching from James Fransz, an author and pastor from Murrieta, California. Then, students will be given the option of different tracks to take for breakout sessions including topics like leadership, spiritual disciplines, and also a track that will provide students with everything they need to begin pursuing full-time ministry in the Free Methodist Church. Then in the evenings, we will worship with General Conference in a multicultural, intergenerational worship experience.
Mix in with all of that the fact that we are at a resort with some incredible pools, and the fact that we’ll be heading over to Typhoon Lagoon on our free day, and you get a unique, pretty incredible opportunity for students to grow in their faith.
We on the FM:Infuse team are pumped to have the opportunity to oversee this experience, and we really hope youth pastors will bring their students. They’ll learn more about Jesus Christ as well as our denomination while having an incredible time doing it at a top-rated resort. Learn more at gc19.org.
