Big Exciting News!

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

I am so excited to announce that I am attending a Summit Ministries Conference this summer!  Mom and Dad are sending me as a graduation present...very generous of them and I am so incredibly excited about it.

Here's Summit's own description of what they're all about:

"Summit Ministries is an educational Christian ministry whose very existence is a response to our current post-Christian culture. Today, countless Christian youth have fallen victim to the popular ideas of our modern world. Most have adopted these ideas into their own worldview, while still others go on to renounce their Christian faith altogether.

Summit views its role in God’s kingdom as a catalyst to counteract this alarming trend. However, our ultimate goal supersedes simply training. As Christians are challenged to stand strong in their faith and defend truth, they will also be equipped to have a positive influence on the society in which they live."

So basically? It's a two-week plunge into lectures on Biblical worldview....combating the popular yet sometimes very wrong ideology of today's culture, and getting to meet other young Christians in the process.  I can't wait to listen to these speakers  - I think it's going to be quite an incredible experience.

So.....the tickets have been purchased.  Dates are on the calendar.  I'm going alone - for two weeks.  *Gasp*  I think I'll survive though.  From what the student schedule is showing, I'm going to be one busy girl....between white water rafting, hiking, taking notes on some amazing lectures, cookouts, and Bible exams, I'm going to be fully occupied and having the time of my life.  :-)

Thank you, Mom and Dad, for giving me this incredible oppertunity!  I can't wait!
