Jesus said, “Come, follow me.” (Mark 1.17). For those who first heard these words, responding was about dropping some fishing nets and literally following after Jesus, but what does answering Jesus' invitation look like today? What does it look like to follow Jesus when you have small kids, a business to run, or school work threatening to drown you? What does it look like to follow Jesus when you can't literally follow him on the dirt roads of Galilee? Is following even possible?
If you have ever asked any of these questions, then Follow is for you. Follow is a conference about being a disciple of Jesus in a twenty-first century world. At Follow, through large group sessions and breakout sessions, we will wrestle with the importance of living as a disciple of Jesus and how that translates in our everyday lives.
This conference is free with lunch, snacks, and childcare provided. You may sign up at the Resource Center or by emailing Laura at LKasson@unioncenter.org.
