Join us at "For the Life of the World" , a conference where college students and young adults can come together to meet, discuss, worship and explore the theme, "For the Life of the World".

The conference is a one day event featuring two talks, worship and fellowship. The talks will be given by, Frs Christopher Foley and Joel Weir who will lead participants in an exploration of Fr Alexander Schmemann's book, "For the Life of the World" and seek to answer the question posed by Fr Alexander in his book: 

"...of what life do we speak, what life do we preach, proclaim and announce when, as Christians, we confess that Christ died for the life of the world?"
