The Rising 2010
Kicking a little shout out to any college-aged students looking to be challenged by the Gospel in a very strategic multi-cultural, inner-city environment. “The Rising” is essentially a mission trip/conference hosted right in the heart of one of the most diverse urban centers in America… Memphis, TN. I had the privilege of taking our college ministry (back in Denton, TX) to The Rising last year. Truthfully, I’ve been to a lot of conferences and one-day events- but none that have exposed and challenged me with Gospel-centered paradigms & opportunities like this one.
Go. But be forewarned… it will mess with your junk.
From The Website:
The Rising is a two-day, multi-cultural experience in the urban core of Memphis, TN designed to engage the mind, heart, and soul. Combining the best parts of a teaching conference with unique “hands-on” opportunities to experience and serve the city, The Rising exists to teach, encourage, model and facilitate gospel living fleshed out in every facet of life. The Rising 2010 includes 3 programs at The Orpheum Theatre (Friday Night, Saturday Morning and Saturday Night), 3 workshops (optional) and a ½ day of service at the Zion Cemetery.
Two options available…
