We believe in the living, triune God: the Father, Son, and the Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son, descended from heaven, died on the cross for the sins of all, and resurrected from the dead. Through His sacrifice on the cross and our faith in his death and resurrection, we have been forgiven for our sins and have been granted eternal life. We are given the Spirit so that we may know truth and always be in His presence and God has given us His Word in the form of the Bible. It is through Jesus Christ that we have been made free, and it is our commission to go out and make disciples so that others would know Him.
Last year set a milestone for JesusWalk, as we embarked on our 10th year of serving the youth community in California. When this conference started 10 years ago, little did we think we would reach 5 years yet alone 10. As a smaller conference in the realm of youth conferences around the world, we’ve seen exponential growth within our students, our staff, the volunteers that come every year and the support we receive from churches, parents and families. The fruitful stories we have witnessed from our young junior high students who have transitioned into being counselors and staff members within the conference, is evidence of God's hand in molding them to be Kingdom warriors and uphold JesusWalk's mission: "To open the eyes of our youth to the potential they have in Christ by breaking free from their worldly chains to become who God has designed them to be in furthering His Kingdom".
Now that we've reached this amazing milestone with JesusWalk, we celebrated our 10th year with a revamp of our brand, starting with a freshly updated logo. We wanted to stay with the brand look that has identified us as who we are over the years, but to show the growth and abundance of blessings God has provided the conference, as well as continue to show boldness in our mission and outreach to the youth communities. We achieved this by simply filling in the circle symbolizing the hundreds of students and volunteers who have been called to JesusWalk over the last 10 years. The 'JW' and 'JesusWalk' font has also been refined to represent the cultivation of God's refinement and sharpening of this conference over the years.
The community circle God has developed within JesusWalk stretches all throughout California and beyond between students, counselors and the many speakers/workshop leaders that have come through this conference. We look to Acts 28 where we continue to be "bold without hindrance in our teaching with the Word of God". To continue to exemplify God’s love, and compassion to influence this generation and future generations to come.
JesusWalk Youth Conference is designed to open the eyes of our youth to the potential they have in Christ. Our vision is that every student breaks from their worldly chains to become who God has designed them to be—each in their own way a disciple furthering His Kingdom. Our mission at the JesusWalk Youth Conference is to provide an open and safe refuge for youth to experience God and His Word. We accomplish this through a four-day dynamic program that includes moving worship, engaging messages, community service, and extensive mentoring by small group interaction. 1 John 2:6 says, “Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.” We give our students a clear picture of how to move beyond the conference—influenced and driven by the Gospel to continually live in His example. What drives JesusWalk is the people who help make it happen. We’ve built this conference with our own youth & young adults to work together as one body and strive for one goal: transform the lives of our students. With the guidance of the CCMP, JesusWalk continues to grow and find new ways of reaching out.
