Reconstructing Faith:
Renewing the Church, Reaching the World

Following Jesus is increasingly complicated and challenging, especially when we consider the controversies in the church and hostility of our culture. How do Christians pursue renewal and reach the world? Join us for our annual THINK conference on March 1-3. It’s time to re-engage with the timeless truth of the Word and chart a path forward for the glory of God.

At kidTHINK, your child will have the opportunity to work through theological concepts taught at a level they can understand. Register for kidTHINK|24. Questions? Contact Becky Brooking.

kidTHINK is only possible because of a team of volunteers! Would you partner with us in teaching our children who and what to build their lives on at kidTHINK|24? Volunteer for kidTHINK
