"I Am the Church" Youth Conference

Twenty four students, eight sponsors, and a bus driver left Midland at 4:00 am on April 19 for Denver and the I Am The Church youth conference. When the students arrived, one of them exclaimed, "We get here at 4:00 in the morning and Mrs. Fairchild is STILL the first person we see when we walk in the door!"

The weekend included workshops for students to attend, an amazing service race, recreation time (including a basketball tournament), general sessions with speakers like Pastor Eddie Hypolite (speaker at Just Claim It 2), and much more for the students to enjoy.

Hope you've been watching our Twitter feed for random messages from those attending. Here are a couple of tweets from the conference:
