Have you ever stood at the edge of a big decision and had to count to three before you could jump? Join us as we inspire and equip students to surrender everything and follow Jesus! Are you ready? Here we go – ONE…TWO…THREE!

Scripture: “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matthew‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Main Speaker: Will Snipes

Will Snipes lives in Travelers Rest, SC, and is a 7th grade Language Arts teacher in nearby Greer, SC.

Music: Relinquish

Relinquish is a four-piece CCM band from Roanoke, VA. They first got their start back in July 2009. Since the beginning, their main purpose is to share the Gospel through their music. Relinquish has chosen to serve the Lord through the gifts that He has given them. Fortunately, the Lord has blessed the band immensely, and they have had the privilege to do just that! Ultimately, the band wants to hold true to what they believe in most. Which is expressed in the bands mission statement: “We want to strive to create music that makes a difference, for the sake of the Gospel, in a world that desperately needs change.”
