What happens during the transition from youth to young adult

What happens when hurt, depression, financial despair, and hate are intercepted by consoling, joy, prosperity, and love

What happens in the transition from unsaved to salvation

What happens when the world meets Jesus

The Baltimore-Washington Conference Young Adult Council presents SHIFT HAPPENS, a day-long experience for young adults that focuses on reaching the unsaved, saved, churched, un-churched, under churched, over churched, and non-churched to nurture those areas that affect young adults the most: The Relation-shift, The Financial –shift, The Vocation-shift, and The Spirit-shift!

Join Young Adults from across the Baltimore-Washington conference as they explore the SHIFTS occurring in their lives.  Recording artist and motivational speaker Akil Dickens will serve as the key-note speaker and discuss the Spiritual Shift.  Recording artist and former American Idol contestant Kurtis Parks, alongside his band, will provide worship music.
