Summit 2023 is all about the movement. The movement among young adult Friends. The church movement. The Kingdom. Summit is a national conference for young adults to experience how the reality of God’s kingdom is calling the Friends Church in mission and engaging us with passion. Kingdom. Mission. Passion.
Summit is a conference that is designed around conversations that will celebrate and fuel the movement; from engaging worship sessions to quiet moments of prayer, from teaching to discussion groups, from Coffee House themes to simple moments with a friend. Our stories provoke the conversation. Conversations that capture the imagination. Conversations that draw out our passion for the mission of the Kingdom. Summit will host conversations that shape the church. Conversations that could change your life!
Who is Summit for:
Young Adults ages 16-25 who:
•Are emerging leaders who desire to follow Jesus and want to see His redeeming Kingdom on Earth
•Wish to take the next steps to grow in the way they serve and lead within the church and community
•Are willing to imagine with others what the Friends Church could become for future generations
What each participant can expect at Summit:
•To be equipped with a growing understanding of spiritual leadership and how it works in the life of a Friends leader. How do we become people who can lead Friends into a future filled with dangerous opportunity?
•An environment that gives freedom to dream for the kingdom and church, and practice discerning next steps.
How do we discern what God might do through us in the local church, in our communities, and throughout the world, for God’s Kingdom?
•An inner-generational relationship with leaders, ministries, and resources connected to the Friends Movement.
What might happen if young adults with a vision had partners, support, and resources from existing Friends ministries?
