The Planet Wisdom Conference
Today I'm taking about six students from the youth ministry to go up to Orange County for the Planet Wisdom Conference with Mark Matlock. I remember loving this conference when I was in high school but I have change a whole lot since then so I'm not sure what I will think of it. Our group is sort of scouting it out to see if it's something we want to do in the years to come. I think it's defiantly something I want the students to be exposed to (especially the worship style and just the opportunity to get together with that many students seeking Jesus). I know it will be a stretch for some of our students because we're not used to the whole raise-your-hands-in-the-air worship style, plus, if and when they do an "alter call" it will probably be somewhat uncomfortable for them but they need to be stretched. Perhaps this will be an opportunity for the students to be renewed in their commitment to Christ and to open up to a fresh beginning. Pray for our group and pray for the conference in general.
