REVO Discord Server

 

Revolution Conference is a national gathering of youth ministry leaders and influencers – with all the wonderful elements associated with FairStival like the “buffet” of (over 70)  workshops by our Partners (organizations, ministries, and individual experts) in varied areas of youth ministry (eg. Mental Health, Evangelism, Discipleship, Missions, Apologetics,  Relationships, Music, Media, & More). It will be a place of resource, inspiration, networking,  connection, dialogue, exchanging of ideas and encouraging one another. But with a difference: with Revolution, the message and mission are stronger and clearer than ever before.

Revolution gives us a clear focus, context, and call to action. Everything we will catch and be equipped with from the workshops, to the sessions in varied formats, by our Partners, will gear us towards fulfilling the Great Commission – not just within the four walls of the church but more so conversations organized and give everyone plenty of room to talk. There are separate channels for all the topics about REVO – from Campus REVO to REVO at Work.
