The need is great, and the world is shaking. God is calling young men and women who will be ALL IN at this crisis hour. We are inviting college-age leaders from all across America for a completely free weekend of holy, presence-filled worship and revelation-filled teaching.
We have felt that the urgency of the hour demands more laborers with understanding. Therefore, for the first time, we are opening up the invitation for our Contend Leadership Summit (CLS). CLS is a completely free three-day family gathering where you will hear from national and global leaders to gain understanding on the times we live in. You will receive teachings and practicals on fasting, prayer, intercession, revival, and biblical worldview.
For such a time as this, join us at the start of 2024 as we discern the times and seasons together, that God might have friends in intercession.
