Jubilee 2014

What an incredible weekend! 3,000 people came down the convention center to experience this unique conference, to connect with professionals and other students like themselves and to meet Jesus in a deeper way.

Do you wish you have been there? Here are photos to help you imagine what the weekend was like:

Do you simply scratch your head about what Jubilee is and why we get so excited about it?
Check you this short blog post by Deirdra Riggs, managing editor of the High Calling, about her first experience of Jubilee:

And here is a quick highlights reel for those of you who couldn't make it:

Between the semesters, Francois had the opportunity to co-lead the Crossings trip for graduating seniors. With a group of 9 students, they paddled the 10,000 islands area of the Everglades. Using coastal kayaking as a metaphor to think of wisdom and navigating the transition out of college into the work world. It was a fantastic trip with fantastic students. In the quiet space and conversations, student had chances to reflect and pray about their callings and how to approach the work world. Allie, a student from Point Park University, had this to say about her experience on the trip:

"My experience on Crossings has been such a blessing from God!  This unique trip has prepared me with confident peace about what is to come next in my life after graduation. Being in such a deserted atmosphere for the week forced me to embrace the love from God and listen to His perfect wisdom.  I was fortunate to encounter loving fellowship with the highly trained leaders and students. And of course, the breath-taking journey through the Everglades was a time that I will never forget.  I am incredibly grateful for having the opportunity to attend Crossings and feel as though CCO XD has exceeded their goal of transforming college students to transform the world."

What a blessing to walk alongside students in this important and formative time of their lives.

Don't miss out

Jubilee is around the corner. Below is a letter from Vince Burens, CCO's Executive VP with a great resource to connect to the conference whether you can make it or not.

Dear fellow leaders,

I am writing to you today to ask your participation in an amazing opportunity that will lead us together through the Jubilee experience. My hope and prayer is that all of us, as well as our staff, students, Board, and donors could be studying these Scriptures together over the upcoming month. Please join me in this movement.

In partnership with the American Bible Society, we have developed an excellent 28-day email Bible study/devotional which delves into the Biblical foundations of the Jubilee conference. We are convinced that this study will make Jubilee even more meaningful than it already is.

Each study will be delivered for 28 consecutive days as an email or text message. You can sign up by clicking here or by texting "jubilee" to 72717.

The Scripture Journey will start tomorrow, February 7, so sign up today to make sure that you don't miss out.

This will be an excellent way to prepare and pray for the conference ahead of time, and to digest what we have learned there during the weeks following. We are convinced of the power of thousands of people coming before God to more fully understand Him and His Word.

Thanks for partnering with us as we prepare for Jubilee!

Thank you,

Vince Burens
Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer
