We live in a culture gripped with fear. Fear of what others might do to us, say behind our backs, or think about us. Fear of what may happen to us or if we might live through the events surrounding us currently. We often live in a state of fear, but Scripture presents us with a different way of living. Instead of living a life in fear of everything around us, we ought to live out the life of the Holy Spirit who lives in us as Christians. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Through the Spirit living inside of me as a Christian, I have been Given the power, love, and a sound mind. You and I can live not in fear but in joy and victory. A life of fear and anxiety is not the will of God. The time is now to start living through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Prayer Advance is a spiritually revitalizing weekend that will help you to grow as a disciple of Christ. You will be challenged to not live in fear, but to live in awe and worship of the Creator we serve.
Who Should Attend?
Middle and High School age
This event is for all teachable young people whether they attend Christian school, home school, or public school. Mature 12 year-olds may attend, preferably with at least one parent. Younger students without parents are required to have a designated overseer from their group for the entire Advance.
Any young person 18 and older can attend, whether they attend college or not. Far too many young people flounder, rather than pursue their God-given destiny. We divide the middle and high schoolers from the College-age during the breakout times and conduct separate sessions for them. It is absolutely crucial that young people discover their Assignment. We will focus on assisting these “soldiers” in discovering and fulfilling their mission.
We will have separate breakout sessions for Middle School students, High School students, Collage-age students and leaders. Age-specific topics and hot-button issues will be addressed.
What Should I Expect?
You should anticipate outstanding Bible preaching on relevant topics. Also, you will experience great fellowship in an inspirational atmosphere. Designated group and prayer times are scheduled as well.
Each group is required to bring their own leaders. At least one leader is required for every six students. Adults and parents are encouraged to attend!

– Elloid Gerona
Our teens gave testimonies last night… Many thought that the idol message really woke them up. Things they didn’t think were that big of a problem were becoming idols and consuming their lives when they didn’t do them. Plus some teens were searching for acceptance from others more than from God. I thought it was great!
Just wanted you to know one of our teens got saved last night. It was a great weekend.
