Last weekend around 900 students and youth workers joined us in Pigeon Forge for The EDGE Conference — a time of worship, discipleship, and celebration designed to point middle school and high school students toward a loving relationship with Christ. This year our band (The Jonathan Project) led worship music, Craig Tackett and Shaun Groves each shared the Word of God, Taylor Mason (with Romeo, Paco and Pacito) made everyone laugh, and Drew Worsham amazed us all with illusions.

In remembrance of the Haiti earthquake that happened one year ago we took up an offering at each of this year’s EDGE conferences to be donated to Compassion International’s Haiti Relief Fund. I am overjoyed to say that between the two conferences our students and youth leaders gave almost $10,000! They also sponsored at least 14 children who’s lives are now forever changed because of these sacrificial commitments. Thank you all for giving!
