What it's all about
Spend some time reading about leadership and you'll quickly learn most sectors are facing a leadership void in the future. As upper level management retires, there are simply not enough qualified leaders to replace them. Imagine if there was a generation of confident, motivated, well-equipped leaders who understood the importance of Jesus Christ and how to share that with others. That is the purpose of FUEL Conference. Three like-minded ministries; Alive on the Lakeshore, West Michigan Youth for Christ, and Grace Adventures are committed to helping your church identify, train, and inspire the future's leaders. Together with your help that void can be filled with a generation of missionally driven leaders!
This conference is sponsored by Alive on the Lakeshore, West Michigan Youth for Christ, and Grace Adventures to promote leadership among students in high school youth groups and churches around Michigan. We are focused on providing a quality experience, centered on a biblical foundation of leadership to move kids towards leading in the local communities and churches.
What will make this conference Unique?
This conference will be designed from a relational perspective. Each segment will be planned with relational space for teams to collaborate, students to interact with other students and leaders, and people to connect to mentor, encourage and develop their leadership skills.
Who should attend?
This conference is designed for those who have a relationship with Christ and want to take it to the next level to grow in their walk and in their ability to lead and impact those around them. Those who are currently involved in the local youth group or para church ministry should attend. This is great for ministry leadership teams to encourage unity, leadership development and spiritual growth.
What will it look like?
Every high school student learns differently. This conference will be designed to hit multiple learning styles in multiple ways. Powerful general sessions will be led by national speakers and dynamic worship. Then choose from a variety of workshops to go deeper with hands on group based training. There is small group processing time built into the schedule to give your team time to make this weekend relevant for where you're living and serving. Finally blow off some steam by taking advantage of the beautiful facilities and fantastic activities of Grace Adventures.
