SBC Student Conference
The SBC Student Conference will offer an opportunity
to "Connect" during the SBC annual meeting in Phoenix.
The Connect evangelism strategy for middle school
and high school students, designed by the Southern Baptist Convention's
North American Mission Board, will be the June 17 conference's focus.
"It's very simple," said Len Taylor, NAMB's
director of student evangelism. "It's connect with God, connect
with a friend, connect that friend with God, and connect that friend
to a local church."
Evangelist Thomas Young of Houston will be the featured
The SBC Student Conference will be held at Symphony
Hall in Phoenix, adjacent to the Phoenix Civic Plaza. It will begin
at 4 p.m. with inflatable games and other outdoor activities on
the Terrace of Symphony Hall, followed by a worship rally from 6:30
to 9 p.m.
The conference this year is a joint effort of NAMB,
the Arizona Baptist Convention and the Frontliners youth evangelism
Arizona Baptist churches will be participating in
the event as their annual youth evangelism conference, while several
hundred Frontliners participants will participate as part of a weeklong
evangelism training experience in Phoenix.
"NAMB is taking a new angle in the schedule
at the SBC in 2003," Taylor added. "We hope to compress
the schedule for the student conference to make it easier for local
groups to attend, while still accomplishing the goals we have set
out to accomplish with Arizona Baptists."
There is no charge for the conference, although
a small fee will be charged for unlimited use of the inflatable
rides. Registration begins at 4 p.m.
