WKND 2022 // 6th – 12th Grade Only
WKND 2022 Conference is officially here, and we are excited to announce some new and exciting opportunities! Over the past four years, God has done some incredible things through this event and specifically in the lives of the next generation. We believe this year will be no different, and we are eager to invite you to the WKND 2022 Conference on February 18-20, 2022! Our emphasis this year centers around the idea of "Redefined." Throughout the Gospels, every time Jesus had an encounter with someone, it redefined their identity, cultural status, and community. This redefinition hasn't changed when we encounter Jesus today! This year's speakers and breakout are sure to be a life-giving moment in the life of your student!
Our lineup this year is exciting!
Reed Moore: Reed is currently the Lead Pastor of Gwinnett Church, one of the Atlanta area churches of North Point Ministries. After graduating from UGA, Reed felt called to pursue a life in student ministry. He is passionate about seeing the next generation come to know and follow Jesus. Reed's fun, energetic, and inspirational style of communicating helps students connect with God, empowering them to live out their faith in a way that makes a difference in their world. Reed currently lives in Gwinnett with his wife, Morgan, their two kids, Blakely and Miles, and their dog, Charlotte.
