The City of Atlanta that is hosting this year’s conference is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States and an increasingly popular destination for college-educated young adults. In addition, a growing number of empty-nesters are moving closer to the city’s core to be near arts, culture, dining, and shopping. Atlanta is one of only two cities in the world to lay claim to two Nobel Peace Prize winners – Martin Luther King, Jr., and President Jimmy Carter.
Think you know everything about Atlanta, the Georgia Aquarium is home to more than 100,000 animals of varying species. From the whale sharks to seahorses, visitors stand in awe of the marine life behind the huge picture window. Fun fact: Georgia Aquarium has more than 10 million gallons of water pumping through its exhibits.
Come immerse yourself and grow in your discipleship by experiencing components of Christian identity formation through classroom instruction from scholars around the world. At this conference you will learn the practice of worship and other spiritual disciplines, onsite contextual application of faith to contemporary real-world issues, small and large group community-building, and recreational opportunities unique to ATL (Atlanta).
