Welcome to Springfest!
Did you know that when we encounter the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it can change everything for us? The power of the Gospel is transformative. It takes hearts of stone and turns them into hearts of flesh. It flips the light switch on darkness. It resurrects the dead and breathes life into them. It delivers hope, it offers peace, and it changes everything.
We want our students to come into contact with the love and grace of Jesus and experience how nothing can ever be the same once we’ve encountered Him. And so this year’s theme is called This Changes Everything.
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
What Happens at Springfest?
We’ve got some seriously good grub during Springfest! Your registration includes lunch and dinner on Saturday as well as some delicious snacks throughout the weekend.
Worship, games, free time, service projects, meals, breakout classes and experience-based prayer times. Plus, check out out Christian college and nonprofit fair during lunch!
Springfest is an amazing chance to connect with other students who know what you’re going through and share your desire to discover hope and healing through Jesus Christ.
During Springfest, you’ll get a chance to meet with students and admissions representatives from Christian colleges from around the country!
Spend time volunteering with local nonprofits, Christian ministries and community groups. You can even count this as community service hours for school.
Last year we got to experience an incredible weekend of worship and celebration with Won by One, the student a cappella group from Pepperdine University!
