Forty-three student leaders from the Applied Christian Leadership class will join 12,000 Next Generation Leaders for Catalyst on October 8-10 in Atlanta. They will connect with other leaders and hear from their favorite authors and thinkers, including  Andy Stanley, Jim Collins, Franklin Graham, Craig Groeschel, and Dave Ramsey. Catalyst seeks to ignite passion for Christ and develop leadership potential in the Next Generation, equipping them to engage and impact their world. Bryan College has been partnering with Catalyst each year since 2001.

"The Aftermatters," a team consisting of eight members of Act: 2 Show: Christ and Testify and staff sponsors Wil and Regina Wade, are headed to Detroit, Lansing, and Grand Rapids over fall break, October 11-19. The team will serve in churches, human services organizations, and the Salvation Army. They will perform an hour-length productionThe Aftermatters prepare and rehearse for fall break ministry "The Pretenders," written by the team using music from a variety of artists. "The Pretenders" presents the gospel through the story of two broken families who come in contact with God's amazing grace. Team members will also seek to find common ground with the people whom they encounter, praying for them and working to make a difference in their lives.

The Worldview Teams have already had a busy semester conducting church and school conferences in TN, NC, and AL. Over fall break, two teams will conduct school, homeschool, and church conferences in Roanoke, VA; Lynchburg, VA; Pensacola, FL; Albany, GA; Winston-Salem, NC; Sharpsburg, GA; Charlotte, NC; and Roswell, GA. A typical conference includes the team presenting major worldviews by analyzing media examples using clips and quotes from popular movies, songs, books, and current news events.  They seek to lead audience members toward a biblical framework for engaging these issues and encourage participants to get involved with the material by asking questions throughout the program.  Click here for more information about our Worldview Teams.
