Confession: I think I'm a conference junkie.
I've been suspicious of this for a while, but this past February I had the remarkable privilege of being a part of the Beneath the Surface Conference in Portland, OR and it was confirmed.
I'm practically addicted.
It doesn't help that Portland is one of the best places on this spinning globe and that some spectacular individuals who love God like it's serious business were putting the conference on.
So folks, Beneath the Surface is a girls conference for for 13-18 year-old girls and their moms. But it's more than just another girls conference. Beneath the Surface has a vision for girls to start living their lives in light of eternity. The real lives and stories and examples stir up a desire to walk worthy of the calling of Christ today, pulling all areas of life under the light of eternity.
The vision catches. And spreads. And soon, before you know it, you have all of these girls running around radically committed to living a life that makes a difference.
A life that walks in the Light.
See? This kinda stuff is addicting.
