Romans 8:1 "Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
Becoming. Every day we are growing and becoming. But who and what are we becoming? Girls become ladies. Boys become men. Lost become saved. The list goes on. This conference experience was created to help students become a young people of faith, who seek to honor God in all that they do. To become one with Him through developing and nurturing their personal relationship with Him. With each passing day we become the person we are shaping up to be. Who are YOU becoming?
The Oneighty Conference is an exciting week of leading students (grades 6-12) into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through powerful worship and exciting teaching. Each day will bring new, fun-filled team building exercises such as color wars, breakout sessions, free time activities and so much more! Students will also learn about serving others by participating in our Serve Day - a day of showing God’s love in a practical way to the Desoto County area. This entire event will be hosted and led by the staff and leadership team of SouthPoint Church in Southaven, MS.
SERVE DAY - Our Serve Day is designed to show the student base in Desoto County that you can show the love of Jesus to anyone, just by simply serving them! We will do yard clean up, trash pickup, etc. to help beautify our local area for the purpose of showing the love of God in practical ways.
COLOR WARS - Students will be assigned to teams during the conference and have the opportunity to help their team win Tribal War games. These team building competitions are great for creating a high energy environment and getting everyone excited to be together and develop new friendships
BREAKOUT SESSIONS - We’ll have breakout sessions where students will have the opportunity to learn from our current leadership team (all of which have been cleared through our background screening process) in small group settings, that allow them to ask questions and expound on topics they may have questions about from the large group sessions.
