Are You Ready to Encounter Jesus?

An Invitation from Mike Bickle

The Onething conference is a gathering of young adults who have purposed in their hearts to live with abandonment and devotion to Jesus. We invite you to join 20,000 young adults in Kansas City this December to encounter Jesus through extended times of worship, teaching of the Word, and ministry in the power of the Spirit.

Our primary aim as we gather is to encounter the majesty and beauty of Jesus, our glorious King, that we might go forth empowered to do His works, be His voice, and see many lives changed.
