Calling Youth to Fascination with Jesus

One of the deepest longings of our hearts is to know who we are and where we are going. In the face of increasing pressure, the Holy Spirit is looking to speak powerfully to youth worldwide and set them apart for His purpose. He knows who we are. He enjoys bringing us into our destiny. We can receive authority to heal the sick, prophesy to the lost, and contend for our generation to be fascinated with Jesus and His glory. Come join us this year as we reach together for identity and vision from the Lord for the the days to come.

Fascinate is our high school conference, where our goal is to connect teenagers to Jesus. We want to see teenagers, youth leaders, and parents from all over the nation encounter God and His love, start and lead prayer meetings, and grow in the power of the Holy Spirit. Only Jesus can satisfy the longings we all have for love, pleasure, and impact.

This annual high school conference is for a generation of young people who desire to live radical lives of devotion to Jesus, encounter His love, and bring His power and presence to our campuses and local churches.

All ages are welcome.
