ASSEMBLY

JULY 23-27, 2018

THE TRADITION

Assembly is a week of discipleship featuring awesome worship, awesome people and one awesome God. It’s joining together with others your age to learn, grow, and laugh. It’s waking up and worshiping through word and song. It’s coming to an event and leaving with a “family”. It’s an opportunity to open up, to get real, to focus. It’s a chance to shift your thoughts, your actions, and your life from things of this world to the heart of Jesus. After all, true worship takes place when all people within a community seek the presence of God and are accepting of each other. That’s the biggest part of Assembly.

WHAT TO EXPECT

+ SMALL GROUPS

Small groups are the heart of Assembly and essential to fostering a deeper relationship as we grow as a community of faith. There is no better dynamic for personal growth than sharing your life experiences with your peers.

+ PASSIONATE WORSHIP

Worship describes those times we gather deliberately seeking to encounter God in Christ. God uses worship to transform lives, heal wounded souls, renew hope, shape decisions, provoke change, inspire compassion, and bind people to one another.

+ FAITH DEVELOPMENT

Through the personal practice of Faith Development, we do the soul work that connects us to others, immerses us in God’s Word, and positions us to grow in grace and mature in Christ.

+ GAMES & ACTIVITIES

These times let them find things in common and get past the initial awkwardness that can come with meeting new people. Youth need the games to break the ice so they can feel comfortable participating in discussions and building community in other areas.

WHO’S COMING

CLIFF PRESTON

Cliff Preston has been traveling across the country for the last eleven years singing songs about a Savior that changed his life. Growing up a preachers son the gospel was present in his life from an early age. Following in his father’s footsteps as a minister, Cliff does his best to allow God to use him to tell His story.

“I believe that God allows us to use the situations in our lives to minister to others that may be dealing with the same issues.”

Cliff began singing in church as an 8 year old. In college he decided to learn to play the guitar and began writing his own songs. He signed his first recording contract in 2007, just five years after starting to write his own music. Since then, God has continued to allow Cliff to use those talents to further the Kingdom of The One True God.

Adult leaders including youth and children’s ministry pastors/directors as well as volunteer ministry staff from your church will also greatly benefit from the week at Assembly. There are wonderful times of personal enrichment and spiritual growth available for your ministry team. We do require churches to bring adults, as we are mandated by our Safe Sanctuary policy, our recommendation is a ratio of 1:7 for JHA and 1:10 for SHA.
Technically, no your registration cost covers all the essentials for the week. But YSF will have a concession stand that has snacks, drinks, and ACCYM swag (shirts, hoodies, hats, etc) and you will need money for that stuff. They also sell pizza one night during the week that is not covered in your registration cost. In the past we have also taken up a collection for different causes and it’s always good to have some offering if you feel like honoring God in that way.

We simply want to make the young generation fully equipped with the teachings of Christ and make them Christ-centered individual. ACCYM encourages more and more youth in this conference in order to develop them physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually strong and prepared now and forever.
