IDK 2017 scheduled for February 25


(January 26) Due to lack of enrollment IDK’17 has been canceled but the IDK Team is planning to have the next youth conference in the fall of 2018.   Do you know a young person in your church who is feeling God may be calling them into ministry? IDK (I don’t know) is an event to help youth explore that sense of calling. This day-long event will provide youth a place to hear about what a calling is, hear call stories, explore their spiritual gifts, and connect with each other. Youth are asked to bring an adult lay mentor with them who can spend this time learning how to support a young person who is feeling called into ministry.
