Future Generations Experience God in Powerful and Life-Changing Ways at Forward Conference 2018

Looking at the pervasive attack on godly values surrounding today’s teenagers, it’s easy to be afraid for the next generation. It’s easy to worry whether they will have the courage to stand for Jesus. 

These dynamic reports from Forward Conference 2018 attendees demolish those worries:

Gisele: This is the fourth time I’ve been to Forward. I’m hoping to be all-in, not fake. I want to be an example. Every year it changes me.”

Natalie (Youth Leader): “Last year at Forward Conference we saw…our youth freed from suicidal thoughts, so this year we came in order to begin and witness a change in the culture of our city.”

Dylan: “I was always a very conservative worshipper. But during Forward I was able to let go of those chains and fully praise with my hands raised and let myself be freed through the worship. I took my worship to the next level.”

Jarryn: “My parents divorced when I was ten and my dad moved to Colorado. I stayed with my mom in Florida. I got into a fight at school and then moved to Colorado to live with my dad. I started getting into trouble—gang stuff—while I was out there, stealing cars, drugs, and drinking. Then I moved back in with my mom and tried to make a turnaround…I recommitted my life to Christ last night at Forward after Pastor Franklin spoke. I want to be set free…I want the Lord to take away that hurt and brokenness.”

Jessica (Youth Leader): “I came to forward as a teenager eleven years ago and completely turned my life around. This year I come back as a youth pastor with the youth group I now lead because I want them to experience what I did.”
