|Caring for the Homeless: How a 19 Year Old Started a Homeless Shelter
Jason Parker, Kingswood University
Don’t underestimate what God can do with your life because you are young. I was 19 years old, and I never imagined God would use me to help start a homeless shelter, that now serves hundreds of people every year with both their physical and spiritual needs. God has a plan for all of us and wants to use us now, even in our youth. He just wants us to be obedient and dream big.
|How to Say No and Keep your Friends
Marsha Boyd-Mitchell, Christian Action Federation, N.B.,
This presentation prepares youth for saying no to things they believe to be wrong by providing 10 exit strategies. These simple strategies will be reviewed alongside the 1 Corinthians 10:13 principle: “God will provide a way to escape temptation.” A great fear we all have to saying no to peer pressure is that we will lose friends and connections. This seminar helps youth to break through that lie, walk in the truth, and make wise choices.
|Justice for the Poor is Possible
Rick Mooney, International Justice Mission Police Officer and Polygraph Examiner, Fredericton Police Force.
The United Nations has stated that: “Most poor people do not live under the shelter of the law, but far from the law’s protection.” This translates into more people being held in slavery today than at any other time in human history. It also means that the world’s poor are suffering from violent injustice such as human tracking and police abuse of power at epidemic levels. Rick will provide insight into this problem and share how International Justice Mission is working to address the issue by rescuing and restoring victims of violence and bringing structural transformation to broken justice systems.
|Silent Victims of Crime
Jonathan English, Prison Fellowship.
This presentation will provide students with information about the work of prison ministry and specifically how they are bringing hope to the children of the incarcerated.
|The Harsh Reality of Drug & Alcohol Addiction—Is There Hope?
Spenser Mason, Development Officer for Teen Challenge Atlantic and graduate of the Teen Challenge program.
Drug and alcohol addiction is an epidemic that is destroying individuals and families all around the world. The power of addiction is so strong that, in many cases, freedom seems almost impossible, BUT there is one power that is stronger than any addiction; the power of God! Expect to hear an amazing story of transformation where an individual was able to overcome the grips of addiction by surrendering his life to Jesus Christ.

Grace Pat: From Islam to Jesus (Saunders Irving Chapel)
As a daughter of an Ayatollah (a high-ranking scholar in Islamic studies), Grace was raised in a Muslim family and exiled by militants. Jesus had allowed her to travel on a journey filled with hardship to ultimately find the way, the truth, and the life. Out of the shadows of Ishmael, the Light of Jesus shines for all Muslims, beckoning them into the Father-heart of God.
