Driven is the conference that strives to gather a generation to become catalysts for Christ within church and culture. It will be held this year at Otterbein College from June 26-29. Otterbein is located in Westerville, Ohio, just outside the I-270 outerbelt of Columbus, Ohio.
Driven was set in motion by the vision of several young adult pastors and leaders in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches (FGBC) with a common passion to gather a generation to become catalysts for Christ within church and culture. Others in the fellowship have caught the vision and were asked to respond to “What is Driven?”
A catalytic experience for renewal, networking, and envisioning. A conversation among leaders whose passion and stewardship will give shape to coming decades of ministry. A gathering that stimulates passion for God’s work. A place to be and become. Driven is all of this and more. Grace College and Seminary believes in this experience. – Ron Manahan, president, Grace College and Seminary
Driven is a Greenhouse for future generation leaders. If you are in your “twenties” and want to make significant difference then come to Driven. We endorse the Driven Movement with great confidence knowing it is a super venue to catapult future leaders. – Jim Brown, moderator, Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches
Driven provides a great opportunity for young men and women to connect more closely to God, to one another and to the needs of others. Grace Brethren International Missions is very pleased to endorse these encounters because they encourage twenty-somethings to integrate more fully into God’s passion for his world. – Dave Guiles, executive director, Grace Brethren International Missions.
Thanks for the work on Driven each year. I know any young adults will enjoy the opportunity to learn, share and be challenged. The leaders of Driven do a great job in their planning! – Ed Lewis, executive director, CE National
I wish that Driven had existed when I was working with college students almost twenty years ago. It’s a great venue for gathering, encouraging, and equipping the next generation of leaders in our Fellowship of churches. We need these people on the FGBC team as we go on mission in the 21st century. – Todd Scoles, Grace Brethren pastor, Marysville, Ohio, and president, Brethren Missionary Herald Company board of directors
If the FGBC is to thrive in the future we must recruit and empower a new generation of leaders. My hope is that through Driven some of these future leaders will build relationships that span the fellowship. Driven is designed to challenge them right where they are at in life. There is no other place in the FGBC where this can effectively happen. – Dave Plaster, senior pastor, Grace Brethren Church of Columbus, Ohio
