South Hills Campus Worship Center
Students 5-12 grade and Adults 

Students have fears about standing up for their faith. Parents have fears they’re not equipping their children enough. We are called to leave these fears behind and share our faith, but what does that really mean? Join us on April 12 and 13 at the Fearless Conference: Courageously Navigating Faith and Culture featuring author and international speaker, Sean McDowell. Together, we’ll learn how to navigate these moments without fear, actively share our faith, and stand firm in who we’re called to be. 

This conference is for you if you have someone in the next generation in your life or if you’re a student in 5-12 grade!

Childcare is not provided.
