This theme was inspired by our youth. We want to help them harness boldness to follow Jesus despite societal pressures by showing them what godly boldness looks like. It is easy in our flesh to be bold about things in a wrong way, to respond in anger when we are offended, or to shout louder than the voices that are seeking to shout us down. We want to teach our youth to be bold like Jesus--filled with love and truth.
We don't want to respond to people's doubts and criticism about Jesus with fear, which causes us to say nothing at all or to get angry and defensive. We want to respond to our culture with the power of the Holy Spirit, with the Love of God, declaring the truth with a sound mind. We pray our students' faith would be solidified in the truth of the Gospel. That they would be able to stand firm and fully trust Jesus in all things. That they would harness the passion inside them in a godly way and shine brightly for their peers to see.
