Two heart-pounding, adventure-filled, top-thrill hours are expected as the Big Give comes to Driven, the Grace Brethren conference for young adults. On Saturday afternoon, June 28, participants will be given $10 each, formed into teams of five, and challenged to use their collective $50 to make as many contacts for ClearView Church, a new Grace Brethren church that is being planted in northeast Franklin County.
“Young people want to roll up their sleeves and ‘DO’ something,” says Jonathon Wiley, a member of the Driven steering committee who is helping plan the Big Give. “We want to provide a creative outlet for conference participants to tangibly impact people in the name of Jesus.”
“Our desire is that the Driven family will do two things,” adds Wiley, who is on staff at the Grace Brethren Church of Columbus (Ohio). “We want to make Jesus Christ exceedingly attractive to the unsaved world we encounter, that we would spread everywhere the fragrance of Christ, and practically, we want to make contacts to assist ClearView as they minister to bring people into a maturing relationship with Jesus.”
The funds for the Big Give are being provided by friends of the Driven conference. Participants will not be permitted to use their own money during this adventure.
The long weekend features speakers such as Jeff Bogue, Kary Oberbrunner, Sarah Cunningham, Kondo Simfukwe, and Keith Minier. The conference also includes practical workshops, three-fold communion, and a variety of activities designed for young adults – whether single or married.
