Spring Conference
Apr

to Apr 10

Spring Conference

Ethnicity. Culture. Identity. Community. These can be complex topics that bring up a variety of different thoughts and emotions, yet are central to the Gospel and deeply rooted in Scripture. What would it look like for students all across the Northwest to gather, enter into conversation, and be on this journey together? Spring Conference is a unique opportunity to gain tools to articulate our own stories while creating space to listen to and learn from other people’s experiences as well.

We’ll spend the weekend being equipped and empowered to live more fully into who God has created us to be, while also being challenged to move beyond our comfort-zones as we go further in our own discipleship and take steps to learn and grow in community.

DATE: April 8-10, 2016
LOCATION: Stanwood, WA
COST: $99 until 3/26 (Early Bird)

Mark Camp
Mar
18
to Mar 23

Mark Camp

Mark is widely consider the first Gospel written about the life and person of Jesus. Come join other NW students as we study this remarkable person. Six days digging into Mark will transform how you see Jesus, His mission, and your life.  

Click here for more info and registration! Cost: $250 for five days of food and lodging. Scholarships are available — talk to Marky Sandico. No partial attendance.

2 options:
Mark 1 - Repent & Believe!
Come live with Jesus in chapters 1-8 of Marks Gospel. Using a manuscript study format, we will meet Jesus together in a new way. If you want a fresh, up close and personal encounter with Jesus, want to wrestle over the secret of the Kingdom of God, them Mark 1 is for you!

Mark 2 - The King Who Serves
Feel like you were left hanging? Come finish the story.  Mark 2 (Chapters 9-16) is a continuation of Mark 1.  Meet Jesus in the climax of his life, death and resurrection. See the unfolding tragedy as his enemies and his followers struggle to understand who He is and what to do.  Only for those who have completed Mark 1.

What is Mark Manuscript Study?
Manuscript bible study is a method created years ago by an InterVarsity staff worker named Paul Byer. Through this method, we position ourselves to understand the original context of the Scripture and attempt to put ourselves in the shoes of the original audience to best understand what the author intended to say. It is a tool that helps us find truths about ourselves and about God so that we can apply what we learn to real life. We want Mark Study to teach us how to be observers of what is happening around us and be able to translate and understand what is happening in the Scriptures.
