PlanetWisdom is a two-day regional conference designed for middle school and high school students to dig deeper into the Bible and see their world from God’s perspective.

Our theme this year, QUEST: Discovering Myself in the Light of Christ, will help show students who they are and why they matter. The teaching on Friday night and Saturday is tied together with the worship and skits in a way that helps reinforce the message for students. The PlanetWisdom student journal gets them thinking and engaging with the content and each other, rather than just listening.pw_2015_quest_design

Students will discover that because of Jesus, they—

  • don’t need to seek the approval of others.
  • don’t have to live in guilt and shame.
  • matter because of who they are on the inside.
