About this Event
It's finally time to get excited and get ready for WKND 2023 Conference! Over the past 5 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 2023 Conference on February 17-19, 2023.
Our theme this year is "United" and students will hear from not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but FIVE amazing speakers during the weekend, each with their own unique styles and personalities. Also, each student will be choosing smaller breakout groups during the weekend, where they will dive deeper into specific areas of their faith. Our hope is that a conference style WKND will push each student towards growth in a deeper faith with God, no matter where they are starting from.
Our lineup this year is exciting!
