Preparations are under way for the staging of the second annual ‘Kingdom In New Dimensions’ youth conference this Friday.
This year’s conference, which will be shining the light on peer pressure, is an initiative of the members of Cayman International Assembly of God’s connection team.
Connection team member Dane Ramoon said, “The conference is important as it reaches the youth on a level that they understand. Having attended conferences around the world, I have seen what they can do to influence the youth.”
Local Sound, a band out of Nashville, Tennessee, will headline the entertainment at the event, which will feature discussion on topics such as living a purpose-driven life, how to handle peer pressure and how kindness can be spread.
Ramoon said Cayman International Assembly of God aims to use the KIND conference to inspire and influence local youth to live positive lives.
“[To] steer their validation away from things like social media and peer pressure and onto the positive aspect of faith, values and community,” Ramoon explained.
Speakers at the conference include Pastor Terrance Wilson of COOL Church in Miramar, Florida and Pastor David Osbourne of Calvary Revival Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
The conference will also include a KIND women’s panel on Saturday starting at 10am at the Harquail Theatre.
“The women’s panel will not only celebrate women of faith but also address a number of issues women face with being a Christian and how to overcome those struggles,” Ramoon said.
The panel will be hosted by Local Sound’s Emily Wyatt.
The free conference starts 9am and is open to children ages 10-17.
