Advance Conference is a Christian Church in Ohio ministry for young adults ranging from 18 to 30 years old. Young adults, no matter their spiritual journey, are welcome to join Advance beginning the winter after they graduate high school. Advance gathers as a community at Camp Christian three times a year, two brief weekend retreats in winter and spring and then for a week-long conference in the summer. Bridging the gap between CYF and adult conferences, Advance helps young people in the Christian Church to navigate emerging adulthood and critically analyze their own beliefs in an open and accepting community. Advance introduces new concepts like keynote and small groups and keeps old familiar camp favorites like the hoedown and consecration to create a new and special experience for conferees.
This year, Advance Conference will be tackling the theme of Peace. Our winter retreat topic will be "Finding Peace in the Unknown" and will be held January 7-9, 2021. With the ongoing reality of COVID-19, we will be following the region’s guidance as to whether or not we are able to gather in person or we will gather virtually. Regardless of the location, we look forward to coming together to explore new topics along with our wonderful faculty!
