Who for?

Young adults! 18-35.

The Christian life is a walk.

The Christian life is a walk.

A walk by faith in Jesus.

But what it looks like to walk by faith today is different.

But what it looks like to walk by faith today is different to what it looked like 50, 100, even 2000 years ago.

2000 years ago, the very first Christians faced very different challenges.

2000 years ago, the very first Christians faced very different challenges.

They lived in a world of idolatry where everyone worshipped gods.

Our society today is completely different.

Our society today is completely different.

We don’t worship gods anymore. We worship ourselves.

So what should we do?

So what should we do?

In this world of self-idolatry that tells us that we are god, that we are the centre of the universe, that we can do whatever or be whoever we want, as long as it feels good, how do we keep walking by faith in Jesus?

So come to Y conference in 2018.

 

If you are a young adult wrestling with these questions, come to Y Conference in October 2018. This year we’ll be looking at what the Bible says about faith for us in the 21st Century, with electives to help you figure out how to walk by faith in Jesus in all of life.

What is Y Conference?

Y Conference is run for the benefit of churches in South East Queensland.

We know how much work and effort goes in to planning and running conferences for young adults, organising speakers and musicians, booking accommodation and catering and so on. And for the most part, churches have enough stuff on their plates to keep them occupied. So we bear the brunt of the camp organisation so that you can just rock up! Why do we do this? To advance the kingdom of God.

Many Christians find that conferences are a unique opportunity to spend a decent chunk of time addressing important issues in their lives. Many have even become Christians on conferences! And of course, conferences are a great opportunity to network with other young Christians around the state, and to be reminded that we’re part of something bigger.

QCCA exists to serve God’s Kingdom and the churches of QLD by running Christian conferences, helping Christians connect with one another, and encouraging them towards maturity and the proclamation of Jesus as the hope of the world.

The Gospel Coalition is a global network of gospel-centred churches; churches which believe that the central message of the Bible is the good news of Jesus: his sacrificial death on a cross for sinners like us, reconciling us with God his Father, through his Spirit.
