Students are ready for so much more.
We’re amped to share with you a tentative conference schedule. We believe that students are ready for so much more: Big worship experiences, exciting teaching, audacious laughter, and living life in authentic community. Each General Session will be a big room gathering where fun happens, we are led in worship, and we are taught. There will also be in-depth and thought-provoking breakout seminars where students will gather into smaller groups and journey through the big questions of life. Our hope is that this conference helps lead your students toward becoming thoughtful followers of Jesus who live out a thriving faith into their adult years.

Where to stay.
The shared experience is a huge part of this event, so if you are attending this event in your own city, within about a 30-minute drive, we strongly encourage having small groups stay together in their leaders’ homes to keep the continuity and focus of the weekend. You’ll find that your times together in vans and buses, and wherever you’re staying, will be some of your best times together for processing the experience.
If you’re coming from farther away, we’ll provide a list of motels that have offered a discounted rate and reserved a set number of rooms for The Amazing Next Conference attendees. Just mention the conference when you call to reserve your rooms. All options include a full breakfast, gym and pool on site. Check back soon for the new list!
