TC 2022 theme is Coming soon
Follow @teens_conference on Instagram for the latest updates.
Life has dramatically transformed over the last two years: our churches, our schools, and our communities have had to learn new ways of being and doing. Even the ways you interact with your family and friends have changed.
Our society and culture continue to evolve at a breakneck pace, often leaving us feeling more unsettled and confused than before. Even conversations about these changes have become increasingly divided and hostile. The fractures, even within your own faith communities, run deep.
This year our focus is to unite together with the ONE who never changes, who holds all creation together, and who has torn down the dividing wall of hostility (Ephesians 2:14). Despite our differences, you have been made ONE with Christ: His message of hope, healing, and reconciliation in our world.
I’m praying for those who will believe in Me, for all of them to become ONE heart and mind — just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, so they might be ONE heart and mind with Us. Then the world might believe that You, in fact, sent Me.
John 17:20-21 MSG
ONE: So The World Will Know
ONE IN CHRIST
ONE: So the World Will Know
How comforting to know that even before COVID happened, Jesus was praying for us!
Before He went to the cross, Jesus spent time praying for his disciples and all future believers. He prayed that all believers would be ONE just as He is ONE with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus' prayer also had a purpose: so that the future generations of believers and the world would know the good news of the Father’s love.
Imagine the power that you and other students' ONEness of heart and mind could make movement in a world currently divided by tribes, politics, societies, history and cultures. You are a part of God’s story, the grand story of His love before the world's foundation (Ephesians 1:4). You get to experience what it means to be ONE with Christ even in a fractured world.
For TC 2022, witness the unity illustrated by the stories of previous generations of students. May you continue to be an answer to Jesus' prayer as others like you encounter and gather around Jesus as ONE here together at Teens Conference.
