Venn Summer Conference 2020

Venn Summer Conference 2020

 

The Christian faith is deep, alive, and worth living well. 

It speaks of our world as filled with beauty and meaning, created by a good God with good purpose. It calls us to live lives marked by wonder, imagination, deep thought, rich feeling, love, courage, and service. This faith has transformed the lives of men and women for generations: given new energy and meaning to the student at her desk, the worker in his office, the athlete with her team, the writer with his pen, the scientist in her lab.

Venn Summer Conference is an opportunity to explore this vision of God, ourselves, and the world, and how it affects all parts of life. Over seven days of learning, conversation, good food, and fun, you’ll come to see the truth, beauty, and challenge of the Christian life.

This summer, join 100 students, young professionals, and creatives from around Aotearoa, New Zealand for seven days as we explore this rich, transforming faith and what it means for our lives.

What’s it all about?

The Christian faith is deep and alive. 

Lived well, it is marked by wonder, imagination, deep thought, humour, insight, rich feeling, service, and love. It has transformed the lives of men and woman for generations: given new energy and meaning to the student at her desk, the worker in his office, the athlete with her team, the writer with his pen, the scientist in her lab.

Venn Summer Conference is an opportunity to unpack this vision for human flourishing and see how it can affect all parts of life. Over seven days of learning, conversation, good food, and fun, you’ll come to see the truth, beauty, and challenge of the Christian life.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

What can I expect?

The week-long conference is challenging, life-giving, and creative; it’s for young adults 18-30 years old, is fully residential, and is held in the beautiful Waikato. The conference is dynamic and creative. Across the week, you will be immersed in rich teaching, creative responses, local field trips, and group discussions. You’ll also have plenty of time in the afternoons to soak up the sun and to cool off in Lake Karapiro.

During the week you can expect to:

  • Hear from engaging and thoughtful speakers who love God.
  • Think deeply about the big questions of faith and life.
  • Explore the ideas and stories that have shaped and are shaping New Zealand culture.
  • Be challenged about what you think and how you think.
  • Eat well, laugh loud, talk a lot, and perhaps even disagree at times—all while making new friendships and deepening old ones.
