Take this weekend to revitalize your soul and emerge refreshed for life on the campus.  

Guest speaker: Joyce Rees

Theme:  IDENTITY“Who you know yourself to be affects everything – your relationships, your work, your values and practices, and your spirituality. This year, at Emerge, we will be exploring identity from a biblical perspective. Our aim is to come away with a more holistic interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit as we gain insight into who God created each one of us to be.”
