ELEVATE 2011 is sponsored by Reach Students Central District of the Evangelical Free Church of America.

Elevate is Designed...
for those high school students who want to take the next step in their spiritual journeys with Jesus Christ. Elevate combines traditional large-group worship and teaching sessions with small-group electives, all within the beautiful nature environment of Hidden Acres Christian Center. The conference’s schedule is flexible enough to accommodate a large high school youth ministry that brings a formal leadership team or a smaller group that brings just a few who desire to know and serve their Savior on a deeper and more fulfilling level. Elevate is designed with your needs in mind.

Please fill out and turn in to your youth leader.

Registration includes lodging, Saturday supper, and Sunday continental breakfast and lunch. Students submit this form and $ 50 to your youth leader by Sunday, September 4th (Add $10 per person after this date). Please make your check payable to your own church and submit it to your youth leader along with this tear-off.

Eternal. Everlasting. Without end. This is what it’s all about. Our lives don’t end at death. Our ministry doesn’t end. The consequences of who we are and what we do will ripple down through the corridors of eternity. So what is your life about? Is it about right now? Is it about what happens after graduation? Or is it about FOREVER?

“Oh that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children FOREVER!” - Deuteronomy 5:29
