Midnight Madness 2016

Midnight Madness 2016

Fri, Jan 29 @ 5:30p–Midnight — The Loop (Fitness & Recreation Center)
"Mission:" noun, an important assignment carried out for political, religious, or commercial purposes, typically involving travel

While "mission" often involves travel and going, Christ's mission always involves being His hands and feet right where you are. At Midnight Madness, learn how Life Bible Study is a critical part of the mission of Christ in our world today and how you can be more effective as a missionary right here in Houston, Texas.

Midnight Madness is our annual Life Bible Study leadership training. We take leadership training very seriously and offer monthly leadership meetings, Milestones classes, Age Division training and individual training opportunities but Midnight Madness is our premier leadership training for all age groups annually. It is the one time we come together as leaders from all age groups and all leadership positions to sharpen our focus on the purpose and role of Life Bible Study and specifically focus on how each leader can serve in their role with excellence.

Current and prospective Life Bible Study leaders from each Houston's First campus will gather for this annual equipping event for great training, inspiring vision, fantastic giveaways, interactive fun — and food, of course!
