WILDHEARTS PROGRAM – Click Here

We are so excited to invite you and your youth ministry to our upcoming CRC National Youth Conference ‘Wildhearts’ from Oct 2-5.  While the pastors and the adults will be enjoying our CRC Global Conference, hundreds of youth from across the CRC will encountering our amazing God with his people up the road at Port Life Church.

This year we are blessed to have some amazing speakers at conference. Ps Joel Cave from the Gold Coast is a dynamic communicator whose church is reaching thousands. Jade Lewis from Perth has an inspirational story of transformation of how God saved her from a life of drug addiction into being a history maker for Jesus. Luke Rasmussen is the youth pastor from Hope Church in Adelaide who is being used by God to impact youth across SA. These speakers as well as our own homegrown CRC speakers are going to be phenomenal.

This year we have our very own ‘Wildhearts’ Band bringing passionate and anointed praise and worship. These will also be massive games, tribal wars, video game lounge and live music over the course of the week. And there will be top shelf coffee for all the leaders!

Rego Cost 

Registration Cost is $150 with a discount for groups of 5 or more so make sure you register with your group. Please note that Conference registration for youth includes lunches (tues-thursday) and dinners (tues-wed) which is great value.

Accommodation

A number of youth ministries have already arranged accommodation for Wildhearts Conference. If you are looking for budget accommodation then please email my PA on michellah@familycentre.org.au and she can advise you of the budget options available.

We can’t wait to see what God is going to do at Wildhearts Conference 2017. We see the youth of the CRC as ‘a movement within a movement.’ We believe that this conference is going to inspire and equip youth ministries, bless the local church and impact the world.

Can’t wait to see you in Adelaide on October 2!

Blessings
