Christian Youth Summit – Now a Live Stream Event
Due to Governor Kate Brown’s recent mandate that there can be no gatherings over 250 people, we had to cancel the Christian Youth Summit at Trinity Lutheran this weekend. We were very disappointed, as were many of you. However, we are excited to announce that the conference will now be a live stream event online.
Instead of having one large Christian Youth Summit in person here in Bend, we can now have many people participate from their living rooms and churches across the country. The more people participate in this online event, the more the heart of the Christian Youth Summit will gain momentum: to equip youth to stand firm in their faith and impact our culture. We know of many youth groups that are hosting viewing events.

FRIDAY, MARCH 13
(6:20 PM) Welcome to the Christian Youth Summit Live Streaming Event
(6:30) Stephen Williams – The Reliability of the Bible: Are you ready to explain the reasons why the Bible is reliable? In this session we’ll explore critical evidence concerning the reliability of the Bible.
(7:30) Jonathan Noyes – Truth in a Relativistic World: We live in a relativistic world where truth has become secondary to feelings and pleasure. During this talk, Jon will explain the history of relativism, showing how it’s become the prominent belief in our society, influencing morality and the church. He will then offer some tools that help others see what’s wrong with relativism and why it doesn’t accurately reflect the world around us.
(8:30) Kim Meeder – Redemption: At nine years of age, Kim Meeder’s life was torn apart by her parents’ murder-suicide. On the day of their funeral, she experienced healing that only Jesus Christ can give and unique emotional comfort through a horse. She will share about rising through the pain and being redeemed by the hope of Christ.
SATURDAY, MARCH 14
(9:00 AM) Welcome Back
(9:05) Kim Meeder – Revival Rising: Kim will continue to share about the hope of Christ, which not only changes our lives, but empowers us to help others and impact our culture.

(2:00) Jonathan Noyes – Tactics: How to Discuss Spiritual Things: Have you ever been asked by a friend or co-worker to defend why you believe what you do? Or, have you ever avoided getting into a conversation because you didn’t want to get caught in the hot seat or look foolish? Jon’s dynamic presentation is designed to equip you with tools that will help you enter into and then guide conversations regarding any number of issues found in culture at large. Learn how to steer a conversation through the use of questions while keeping the burden of proof on the person making the claim.
