After prayerful consideration, the steering team that plans the young adult conference known as Driven has decided not to host the annual gathering scheduled for the summer of 2009.
Driven began with the vision of several young adult pastors and leaders in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches (FGBC) who shared a common passion to gather a generation to become catalysts for Christ in church and culture. The first gathering was held in 2005 and it has met each successive year. During that time, Driven has seen God at work through collective efforts and has developed a reputation for the quality experience it provides participants.
Although the planned Driven conference is not going to take place this summer, the steering team has accepted an invitation to sponsor young adult events at Equip 09, the annual conference of the FGBC to be held July 26-29 in Columbus, Ohio. More details will be announced at the website (http://www.drivenconference.com/) in the coming weeks and months. Look for Driven-oriented training tracks for young adults, as well as late night breakouts to build relationships and equip young leaders.
