be + longing

Young Adult Conference 

joy together...
strength for life

August 16 -18, 2024
San Luis Obispo County, CA

(ages 18-30)

Do you long for greater life and transformation? Do you desire confidence in who you are and who you belong to? We’re getting together with young adults from all over California this summer to dive deep into the Bible and brain science in the company of God and one another. Come discover the ways in which transformation truly takes place in the human heart. We want to "be" and to "long" together in order to develop the connections and shared vision necessary to succeed in life. Three days in the beautiful coastal range near San Luis Obispo with accommodations for tent camping or bunk housing, along with worship, campfires, great teaching, good food with plenty of provision for dietary restrictions, and lots of time to be together!
