November 10th - November 12th, 2017
We are so excited for OSYC17! Our hope is you have already begun making plans to join us in Springfield, OH on Nov 10-12, 2017.
This year’s theme is “Belong”. Our hope is to have an open, honest discussion about the importance of Christian community. One thing we all have in common is a desire to “belong” somewhere. Our hope is students will see that Jesus has already made room at the table specifically for them. In Christ, we all “Belong”!
We are excited to announce this year's speaker at OSYC, Joseph Sojourner aka "SOJO"
Sojo continues to speak to students and young adults, serves as a creative director to Bigstuf Camps, is the emcee at Catalyst Conferences, and also continues to communicate throughout the six churches of North Point Ministries. Joseph has a passion for creatively engaging the next generation of leaders in the church and culture. Sojourner’s love of Jesus, unique voice, and creative mind are why so many have begun to champion him a worthy voice of the next generation.
Leading us in worship will be the band, Carrollton, Growing up as worship leaders, Carrollton is a band shaped by their upbringing, their music and their namesake. The guys hail from Louisville and Cincinnati, so it only made sense for them to take on the name of the small town between their two cities - Carrollton, KY. Coming off their second album, Sunlight and Shadows, they have the same focus to share the hope of Jesus wherever they go, We encourage you to get to know their music prior to attending this year’s conference through their website carrolltonband.com or check them out on YouTube.
We are also again adding a late night activity Friday night. We have rented out the ice skating facility complete with a party room and DJ. This is at no cost to your group (outside of a $3 skate rental for those that wish to skate).
We are excited to announce that Maiden Lane will be hosting OSYC again this year. We will be continuing with breakouts. Our approach this year is to have breakouts that are focused on specific grade levels. This will allow for more meaningful discussions as students converse with others in similar life stages. These breakout sessions will all relate to the theme of the convention and will hopefully bring the message of the weekend in a more concrete way for students.
If questions or concerns occur, please do not hesitate to call Tim Riley at (937)323-9747.
