“DRIVEN06,” a second annual conference for young adults will be held June 22-26, 2006, on the campus of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, and is now open for registration.
After a very successful first conference in 2005, planners have titled the 2006 conference “Alert and Oriented.” It centers on helping twenty-somethings answer four questions: 1. Do I know who I am? 2. Do I know where I am? 3. Do I know what time it is? and 4. Do I know what is happening?
To help answer those questions, the Thursday through Sunday conference will include speakers, workshops, roundtables, coffee talks, open mic sessions, and much more. A significant amount of time for recreation and individual reflection is also built into the schedule.
Main speakers for the conference will include Kondo Simfukwe from Christ’s Covenant Church in Winona Lake, IN; Jeff Bogue from Grace Church (north) in Akron, OH; Lisa Harrison from the East Side Grace Brethren Church in Columbus, OH; Dr. Randy Smith from the Grace Brethren Church of Sebring, FL; and Kary Oberbrunner of the staff of the Grace Brethren Church of Powell, OH.
Many others will be leading workshops on specific topics, and several of the Grace Brethren national organizations will be present to participate and exhibit.
The fee for single adults is $165 per person, or $300 for married couples. There are special group rate “packs” that provide free t-shirts and free registrations. Also day rates, weekend rates, and children’s rates are available. Registration includes lodging for three nights and four days, and seven meals (concluding with Sunday breakfast).
