Youth moving forward in faith
Annual Forward Conference to inspire and invigorate teens
Students gather in June 2014 for the Forward Conference. This year’s conference is already sold out, according to the organizers. However, youths and adults interested in watching the event can view it through a live stream.
In less than a week, about 13,000 students will gather at the Arena at Gwinnett Center to celebrate their faith and Jesus. “The Forward Conference’s main goal is to make Jesus famous,” Free Chapel youth pastor Blake Hamon said. While in college and attending for the first time in 2008, Hamon felt overwhelmed by the experience but in a positive way.
