Come join President Suzanne Davis for a special gathering on the shores of Laguna Beach. You’ll laugh. You’ll sing. You’ll meet great people who share your passion for empowering young people to change the world.

Expect inspiring presentations from our special guests, plus plenty of free time to enjoy the sun, sand, and sea of the California coast. Let’s cast vision for sending out students who will be salt and light wherever God calls them.
