You can register by check or cash payment to Josh or Craig. Checks can be made payable to "UCC" with "Oasis" in the memo line.
WHO IS THE SPEAKER? - Trip Lee is an author, teacher, hip-hop artist, and thought leader whose deepest desire in his writing, teaching, and performing is to declare the goodness and glory of Jesus Christ. A pastor in Atlanta, he regularly preaches and teaches at Christian conferences and events, and has performed his music for thousands of listeners around the world.
In his first book, The Good Life, Lee points to the abundant life available only in Christ – a life beyond anything the world can offer. His second book, Rise, calls a younger generation not to wait to follow God, but to get up and live now.
As a hip-hop artist, Lee’s music has received critical acclaim, while reaching a large and growing audience. He’s won a Stellar award and been nominated for several Dove Awards. His last three albums have debuted at #1 on the Billboard Gospel charts, and his most recent album, Rise, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Rap charts and #16 on the Billboard 200.
We're excited to have Trip share the truth of Jesus through Hip-Hop and teaching this year. 
WHO IS LEADING WORSHIP? - The Jordan Howerton Band has led thousands of students and adults closer to Jesus through engaging and high energy worship music. They not only bring excellence in their music, but teach students what a heart seeking Jesus looks like as they lead students. They love to take time to meet students outside of worship sessions, and have a rare way of connecting with students from a variety of walks of life. In addition to working with JHB, Jordan is currently on staff with Christ's Church of the Valley in Phoenix, AZ. 
The Jordan Howerton Band has played for various conferences including CIY, PlanetWisdom, and Simply Youth Conference. We've been honored to have JHB with us several times in the past and are excited to partner with them again. Your students will approach worship with a fresh heart when you get home as a result of spending time worshipping Jesus with Jordan and the guys! 
WHAT SHOULD I BRING? - Clothing, toiletries, towel, overnight sleep stuff (sleeping bag, pillow, PJs, favorite story books to read to your friends), Bible, journal or notebook, writing utensil, and a friend!
We can't wait to go to Oasis with you!
