A special invitation to college students (18-23) who would like to attend Fire-Up Conference and help us kick off a new era of ministry!
Fire-Up Conference is an event focused on discipleship of high school students and for 2019, we’re opening the doors for an all new college track. Fire-Up will be held February 22-24, 2019 at Troy United Methodist Church in Troy, IL. It begins on Friday night and concludes on Sunday morning at 11:45 am.
The college track will be designed specifically for college students. This group will be at the Fire-Up worship services and meals, but will have times of small group, study and missions together. Students who register for the college track will participate in the weekend worship and grow in faith with other students from around the area.
2019 Conference Speaker: Bill Stanley
Bill Stanley is an international youth & young adult speaker with an incredible passion for life. Through his talks, Bill is helping people embrace the reality of God’s grace and face the fears of their past to live a successful future.
He became a Christ-follower at the age of 16 while attending Eau Gallie High School in Melbourne, FL. Since speaking publicly for the first time at the age of 19, he has spoken to thousands annually using the newest ways to share the oldest truths.
Bill now reaches the hearts of students and adults alike through powerful communication skills that are practical, insightful and humorous. [more]
