Breakouts

You’ll have the opportunity at RISE to attend one session from each topic: Identity, Culture, and Mission. Check out the lineup below and consider which sessions you’d like to attend.

Identity

VALUE & WORTH
We live in a society that values intelligence, appearance, and achievement, and it’s easy to feel like you don’t measure up. Where does our worth come from? How can we find confidence in who we are?

 

ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, & ME
How do you deal with the pressure in your head without losing your mind, your life, your soul?

 

SEXUAL ORIENTATION & GENDER IDENTITY
What does the Bible say and what should my response be as a Christian? 

Culture

DEFENDING TRUTH
Everyone has a right to their own opinion but is every opinion right? How to have the hard conversations about God, faith, the Bible.

 

SOCIAL JUSTICE & RACISM
How do we move beyond stereotypes, judgment and assumptions as we journey toward reconciliation? A redemptive dialogue about race and culture.

 

MEDIA & TECHNOLOGY
In a world that’s over-connected, social media has become a priority in our lives. What influence does it have on your life and how do you navigate the pressures that come with life on social media?

Mission

EVERY DAY, EVERYWHERE
What does it mean to “live on mission?” What does it look like? Understand what the Bible says about your role in God’s story and the responsibility we all have as Christians.

 

POVERTY & BROKENNESS
Life is hard and we are broken. Why does brokenness exist in our world and what does that have to do with poverty?

 

HELPING WITHOUT HURTING
Believe it or not, your good intentions might be doing more harm than good. Learn how to help others with dignity, respect, and honor while maximizing the impact of your service.
