In 2003 it's time to "Dive In" to a closer relationship with Jesus. We do a lot of splashing around our relationship with Christ without diving into the deep water. We clutter up our lives with unnecessary stuff that gets in the way of following Christ. A week at Quest will challenge students and adults to give away extra stuff, clear junk out of our relationships, and find deep inner solitude that leads to outward simplicity which allows God's presence to fill our lives.
Quest is a weeklong conference for middle and high school youth who have completed grades 6-12, and their leaders. Quest meets in the Carroll Youth Center where housing, sessions and meals are all in one location.
Quest is designed to bring youth and leaders together from various churches, confront them with their need for Christ's love, inspire them to be active in the building of God's Kingdom, and give them practical tools to motivate them to become involved in ongoing missions and Christian service in their home town and around the world.
At the heart of Quest are Encounter Groups that provide youth with practical tools to use in missions and Christian service. Encounter Groups might include Music, Drama, Clowning, Sign Language, Puppetry, Peer Ministry, Work Teams and more. Each group is designed to help raise interest and awareness of talents and abilities that can be used to share the Gospel with others, and to make a difference in the lives of youth long after they go home!
Each evening our praise team will lead your group in inspirational worship and teaching. Special fellowship activities will be offered following our worship time each night.
