The fourth Navigate By Faith Christadelphian Youth Summit will be held on March 18th, 2023 at the Verdugo Hills Ecclesial Hall. This year’s summit is called “Who Does God think you are? Your Identity in Christ”, and is about how to define ourselves by who God thinks we are, not by our our own feelings, or the opinions of those around us.
One of the main struggles in life is figuring out who you are – “finding yourself”. People often use things such as their career, their interests, their sexuality, or their relationships to define who they are. However, we Christians don’t need to wonder who we are – we’ve been told by God that we are his children, chosen by him before the world began, so that by following the example of Jesus Christ we can bring glory to his name. In this Youth Summit, we’ll be exploring this concept, both how we know it to be true, and what it means for us in our daily lives.
We hope you can join us on March 18th, 2023 beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Verdugo Hills Hall. The schedule will be similar to our last youth summit, and will include classes, discussion groups, testimonies, prayer, a panel discussion, and of course good food!
Much thought, prayer and effort has been put into this Youth Summit. We would love to see you there! Also, we would ask that you pray for God’s blessing on our effort and this day! Our prayer is that it truly expresses his purpose, would be a help to all who attend and bring glory and honor to our Father and our Lord Jesus.
for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name,
you are mine.”
– Isaiah 43:1 –
