We’re taking our 16 year old to a Leadership Conference at Newspring Church

Today, Tracie and I are taking Bekah, our newly minted 16 year old, to a Leadership Conference at Newspring Church.

We are SO excited!

Perry Noble just released a new book on leadership called ‘The Most Excellent Way to Lead’. It’s based on 1 Corinthians 13 and it’s amazing! To coincide with the book, Newspring is hosting a conference with some amazing speakers and leaders…Steven Furtick and Dave Ramsey to just name a few.

We had the idea a little while ago and went with it! As parents, we’re always trying to give them every opportunity they can have to lead and to grow and we felt like this would be a HUGE moment for her. Plus, she gets to miss 3 days of school.

And, if the conference wasn’t enough, tonight we get to visit FUSE, Newspring’s student ministry for grades 6-12. To be quite honest, our student ministry at Thrive wouldn’t exist without her leadership, passion and servants heart and so I’m super excited for her to experience the kind of student ministry that we dream about for Thrive!

It’s also a bonus that while we’re there, she gets to talk to a few people from Newspring College! Yeah, that’s very exciting as well!

I’ve been praying for this trip for months and I’m asking God to use it in a powerful way in Bekah’s life!
