WHAT IS MIDDLE SCHOOL OASIS? - This conference will be high energy, fun, while talking through topics relevant to middle schoolers. The Theme is SOAR. We'll be looking at how to trust in God's strength. In a culture that is increasingly hard to navigate and still follow Jesus, we want middle schoolers to be equipped to rise above - to soar - in the midst of changes, challenges, & pressures that are beginning to face them by leaning in on His power in us.
