This year’s theme is Grace and Truth, taken from John 1:14. Jesus is quoted to have come to the earth “full of grace and truth.” What does it look like to live with a heart of grace and truth, even though these ideas seem muddled in a chaotic world?

Speaker: Paul T
We are privileged to have Paul T as our speaker this year. A former Bloomingdale Church staff member, Paul served as our 18.20’s director through April 2013. Paul earned his Master’s in Divinity from Trinity International University in 2011. He is currently gaining business experience as he works towards being an International Worker with our denomination. Paul has an enthusiasm like no other and will surely relate well to each student. He also communicates the Bible in real and practical ways, which will help students apply the teaching to their everyday lives.

Host Homes
The students will be staying in church members’ homes on Friday and Saturday night. Each host home will provide sleeping arrangements (aka a floor) for the students. Small group leaders will be accompanying and staying with the students at their host homes.
