Winter Youth Summit 2020

January 17-19, 2020 in Huntsville, AL

January 17-19, 2020 in Huntsville, AL



Our theme for the 2020 Winter Youth Summit is “Connected” which is taken from Ephesians 4:4-6,

“You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness.”

-The Message

Our Speaker:

Shaun King
