The 2018 Elevation Conference presented by the HTC Youth and Young Adult Ministry is coming!! Featuring Woody Vereen, Eshon Burgundy, John Matthew Borders IV, Royce Lovett, Brinson Wright, Beleaf Melanin, and many more.
Theme: The Good Life
The Christian life has always been falsely perceived as a one that will be free from trial and tribulation. The Bible does not promise this however it does prepare us and equip us to deal with those challenges we will face. This conference endeavors to prepare young and old to deal with those challenges. At the same time we will discover what the Bible does tell us about living “The Good Life” before the unsaved so that our works will glorify God when he comes.
Key Scriptures: 1 Peter 2:12, Matt 5:16
Full Registration for the Conference is only $59.99! Includes Worship Service, Concert, all workshops, entrance into The Plug, Conf Tshirt and food! Early Bird Registration is only $49.99 for a limited time.

MYSTIC CHORALE SINGS WITH YSAYE BARNWELL!!
Come share the joy as 200 singers of the Mystic Chorale, led by Nick Page, perform SELMA TO SOWETO, songs of community, power and hope from the ongoing Civil Rights movements of South Africa and the US. Ysaye Barnwell, who has spent three decades singing with Sweet Honey In The Rock and building communities of song throughout the world is this season’s featured guest. Her central message—that together our voices matter—is sagely conveyed in the lyrics she wrote for Step by Step: “Many stones can build an arch, singly none.”
The chorus will also be joined by South African friends Nthabi Thakadu, Phakamani Pega, and Pumla Bhungane, as well as pianist extraordinaire Jonathan Singleton.
All of the songs—past and present, South African and American—deliver powerful and relevant messages for today’s world!
