Report - 2018 Young Adult Conference

From September 21- 23, about 100 young adults from around the country gathered in Detroit for a conference. The theme for the weekend was Back to Basics – a deeper look at our faith and what it means to be a follower of Christ.

After arriving, the group was able to meet and spend time with each other at a welcome mixer on Friday evening. Beginning this night and continuing to the end of Saturday, a prayer room was made available to the young adults. This room had different prayer stations, each one focusing on and prompting different elements of prayer.

Saturday, the conference began with a message from District Apostle Kolb about the church’s strategy of making disciples and building a solid foundation for this to happen. Various sessions carried on throughout the day. Young adults learned about certain topics, such as:
• Prayer
• Journaling
• Christian and church history
• Studying Scripture
• Spiritual gifts
• Doubt and faith
• Worship
• Solitude and silence
• Reconciling relationships

In some of the topics, the young adults were given the chance to practice the ideas presented. They also participated in small group sessions that focused on the basic elements of our faith.

Along with these topics, the young adults were able to pose questions to our international church theologian, Dr. Reinhard Kiefer, who was also at the conference, in Q&A sessions throughout the day.

On Sunday, the group took buses to the Sterling Heights congregation to join them in divine service. District Apostle Kolb preached a message based on Romans 10:10, inspiring us to speak about God’s goodness in our lives.

After lunch, the young adults had the afternoon open to talk, ask more questions of the church theologian and the District Apostle, and spend time together. We hope that the opportunities created this weekend to connect to God and to each other have transformed and empowered our young adults to go into the world and live their faith.
