Thousands of students from all over the world will descend on Duluth’s Infinite Energy Arena on Thursday as part of the Free Chapel’s 14th annual Forward Conference.
About 13,000 students are expected to attend the conference, which includes award winning artists and world-renowned speakers with sessions offering a wide variety of games, music and inspirational messages.
The conference features notable Christian artists such as Hillsong Young and Free, Jesus Culture, Elevation Worship and Free Chapel Music and this year’s speakers include Jentezen Franklin, Laura Toggs, Banning Liebscher, Brock Byrd, Ben Prescott, Reggie Dabbs, and Jake Fouquier.
Sy Rogers, a leading voice on sexuality, cultural themes and God’s character will also be featured and will speak on his own unique life story.
“With the ever-increasing flood of influences luring our young people further away from the God who has created them and loves them deeply, weekends like Forward Conference are making space for the next generation to reconnect to their identity in Christ, empowering them as leaders, and igniting a passion for Jesus,” Franklin said.
Tickets for the three-day conference cost $100.
