Our theme in 2018 is Let There Be Light. The most transformative expression in the history of the world was the moment “God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” A prophetic shot in the dark and unformed canvas. The Author of creation peered into the darkness and illuminated the world with a reflection of His heart. A ray of hope. A desire to know the unknown.
This image of light is portrayed through all of creation and expressed by the way Jesus loves people. Jesus came to give authority to all those who believed in His testimony, fulfilling God’s prophetic utterance: “Let there be light.” Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” This generation has the liberty and responsibility to carry this light of knowing Christ to the ends of the earth.
Arizona Youth Convention is a two-day conference that allows you to intentionally give God permission to interrupt your schedule, speak into your life, and commission you into a greater awareness of His presence in your daily life.

Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
