Rise Up | Twin Cities

Middle School Conference

What is Rise Up?

We are never too young to strive for holiness.  This one-day conference for middle school youth challenges them to “rise up” to live their faith radically, confident that they are known and loved by God the Father. 

Young people will be strengthened in their relationship with Christ through keynote speakers, praise & worship, Adoration, Reconciliation, and lots of fun activities!!
