I'm super excited about Connect this weekend. It's our first state-wide college ministry gathering. We're hosting this year at Schweitzer and it should be a great event. I'm really looking forward to hanging out with Margaret Feinberg and Wayne Kerr. The event starts on Friday night and runs until 4:30 on Saturday. The first session is at 10pm (it is for college students). There's also a concert with Todd Agnew, Manafest, and One Star Story on Saturday. My favorite part of the event is that it's mostly planned by college students. We've got a great student leadership team from all over Missouri that has been working to make this event possible.
This is the first large scale event we've done for college students. I'm really hoping it will be a success. The cost is only $20 so it's a great deal. I know a lot of churches are subsidizing some or all of the registration for their students. Schweitzer is paying half for the students in our ministry. Even at full price it would be hard to pass up.
Not sure how many college students read my blog that wouldn't know about the event already, but registration is open until Thursday at noon if you want to spend a weekend in Springfield, MO.
