STIR Conference: Complete 2015

STIR Conference is about bringing young adults together for Spiritual emphasis days. The idea is to set aside time amidst busy schedules of work, school, and daily routines to focus in on what God is wanting to do in your life. The conference includes three main sessions and many options for workshops on Saturday afternoon. The heart of the organizers is to make it available even for those with children. Limited spaces are available for childcare on a first sign-up basis. This is an opportunity to be involved in a community that is alive in Christ and intentionally living out the call God has on each life. 2 Tim. 1:6 encourages us to “stir up within you the gift that you have received”.
