Usa: Forward Student Conference: (12 000 people):
Over 12,000 students and youth leaders from across America and around the world will gather just outside of Atlanta in Duluth’s Gwinnett Arena June 27-29, 2013. For three days they will rush down the concrete stairs of the arena for the best seats to hear music from some of their favorite artists and be inspired by thought-provoking messages from some of this generation’s leading faith-based speakers.
Presented by Free Chapel in Gainesville, GA, Forward Conference provides an atmosphere where students can experience inspired teaching to propel them forward in their God-given purpose. “With so many influences on our young people today our mission is to be a positive voice of encouragement that helps equip them to build a successful road to their future,” says Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor of Free Chapel and father of five. Since 2005, Forward Conference has built this annual outreach event to inspire, impart and empower today’s generation of young people.
