IRENE GALLEGOS {for teens & young adults only} Worth the Wait – Physical and sexual purity is more than a fairytale, it's a fight for faith. In this session, we'll discuss how the sexuality struggle is real and the reality of faith that overcomes.                     

 

 

JULIANNE MIRABAL {for teens & young adults only} In this session we will explore our identity in Christ and the insecurities we have. Many times we get wrapped up comparing our outward appearance with our family, friends, the people around us and even those on social media. We will be discussing our identities which are found in Christ and how we can build our self-esteem, find out true worth, and SHINE for Him. 

 

KIMBERLY RINCONES {for teens under 18 only} Don’t Settle – Learn how to trade the good things (and even the not so good) for God's best. In this breakout, we will learn not to be content with just dipping our toes in the water. Life is more exciting when we take the plunge and jump in with both feet! We pray that you will not stay stagnant or idle with where you are in your faith, but that you will grow, flourish, and SHINE for Christ!

 

 

KIRBY MINNICK {IN GYM} Using Your Influence on a Platform for Christ - God has you where you are at this time in your life to use you to impact others. How can He use you? Pray about it. Dream about it. Share your vision. Each one of us has a platform God has given us. For some, the platform may appear to be small, and for others, it may appear to be big. With God involved, even the smallest can become great. Little is much when God is in it.

 

 

MIA MATHES – A Life of God-Worship - What is your true treasure in life? Who or what are you in love with? This workshop is going to be focused on living a life of God-worship. Not worrying about the things the World has to offer but how to focus your life in God-reality, God-initiative, and God-provision.

DARLENE PACHECO {for teens & young adults only} – Figuring it Out - As a high school student trying to fit in with the crowds, Darlene felt the pressure to become someone she really wasn’t. She seemed daring and cool, but inside she was quietly ashamed and regretful. Now Darlene has found her true identity! Whether you are torn between identities or simply just want to know who you truly are, these encouraging truths from the Bible will motivate you to discover your true identity!

 

 

ELISANDRA QUIROS & OLGA RODRIGUEZ {IN GYM} - Strong, Aware, Armed, and Prepared - In this interactive class we will learn about having an action plan to be victorious: body, mind, and spirit. And we will enjoy some Zumba fun too! Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body. 1 Cor. 6:19-20
