2019 Teen Track Sessions:
Living as an Inspired Disciple: Who Should I Follow? – Isaac Mogilevsky
– 10:30 am – Friday
Isaac Mogilevsky, Executive Director of Daily Disciple Ministry, examines the foundations of what makes a true disciple. Isaac also explores one of the most important questions that many teenagers are asking today: Who should I follow? Join him as he combats the lies that the world passes off as answers to this question and digs into God’s truth.
Forgiven Much – Nick Betzing
– 1:00 pm – Friday
We will look at the wonder of God’s forgiveness in Christ to rebels and the impact of the Cross in our daily lives.
The Truth is in Jesus: Ephesians 4:17-21 – John Feakes
– 2:30 pm – Friday
The purpose of this lecture is to instruct and encourage our young people to build their lives on the solid rock of God’s word. John will show them that it is not only morally upright to do so, but it turns out it is a rational necessity as well. The corollary to this is that all thinking that is contrary to the teaching of Scripture is outright foolishness. As Paul rhetorically asks, “Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?” (1 Corinthians 1:20).
3 Keys to Success in College – Ian Andrews
– 4:00 pm – Friday
Ian Andrews, K-12 homeschooler and Hillsdale College graduate, reflects on his own literary education, offering three key principles for continued success in higher education, while recommending a book that every high school student should read before graduating.
Courage to Move – Isaac Mogilevsky
– 9:00 am – Saturday
What does a courageous life look like? You may think of a medieval knight stepping into battle time and time again or perhaps a modern military officer, risking his life for the cause he believes in, or a doctor helping disease victims in third world countries with the risk of catching it themselves. All of these people could be good examples of living a courageous life. In this session, Isaac Mogilevsky explores what it means to live courageously for Christ and the importance of choosing the right fuel for our courage.
From Fear to Fearless – How God brought a homeschool girl from rural Manitoba to some of the most remote places in Asia – Ginger Rempel

Authenticity in an Age of Actors – Isaac Mogilevsky
– 2:30 pm – Saturday
In our age of social media, where people can present themselves idealistically, the trait of authenticity is rarely seen. In this session, Isaac Mogilevsky presents the benefits of authenticity, and the importance of authenticity with ourselves, others, and God. He will also share related personal stories.
