Revolution Rising Weekend

Matt Lawson —  November 19, 2012 — Leave a comment

You probably haven’t heard much of Revolution Rising Weekend. It’s no surprise to us either as we haven’t talked much about it. In fact, we’ve only tossed out one tweet and this four sentence post a little over a year ago since we launched the idea. Gratefully, even with low-key promotion, we will complete at least 10 weekend events in the last year and a half by the end of this spring.

Revolution Rising Curriculum

We’re excited for several new partnerships this year, including Jake Holman and the Epicenter band leading worship as well as our curriculum partner, Redline Student Events and Gene DeVaughn.

The retreat vision is somewhat different from a typical DNOW or retreat setting in that we are intentional to allow ordinary students who’ve been used in extraordinary ways tell their story throughout the weekend. We’re thrilled to still hear stories from events this past spring of students who placed their yes on the table and have moved forward in their faith.

There are four remaining weekend dates for this coming spring to host Matt and the team. Other dates may be available with other speakers. If you’re interested in Revolution Rising for a summer camp or fall 2013 weekend, feel free to contact us as well.

The weekend allows flexibility to bring in the entire team or just a speaker. We provide everything needed to complete the weekend.

AVAILABLE DATES SPRING 2013
March 22-23
March 29-30
May 3-4
May 10-11

We would be honored to partner with you in leading students from apathy to revolution. Check out the Revolution Rising website for more info or contact us today about booking.

Revolution Speaks is undertaking a writing project to narrate the stories of everyday student revolutionaries.

  • STUDENT PASTORS/STAFF – do you have a student(s) you would recommend that could write a 250-500 word of their journey of living revolutionary?
  • STUDENTS – have a story that could encourage other students who feel like they’re on an island and need to know they’re not alone?
  • PARENTS - is your son/daughter living uncommon for Jesus?

If you or someone you know would be interested in participating in this project by writing a 250-500 word chapter, please email matt@revolutionrising.net. Details for what we are looking for are below.

GUIDELINES:
1. 250-500 words in length
2. Share your story of revolution:
- could be one courageous moment
- could be a ministry you started
- could be sharing the gospel with a friend or friends
who got saved
- could be the story of inviting a friend to church who
got saved
- could be the story of you starting a bible study/prayer
group/worship gathering
- could be someone you’ve shared the gospel with
- could be something revolutionary in your journey of
faith (read through the bible, weekly ministry, etc)
- GAP year experience
- could be your journey of loving Christ without many
Christian friends around you that share the same pursuit
3. The audience for this book is teenagers. You’re narrating
your story to other students who need and want encouragement that they are not
alone in their pursuit of Christ and they can in fact live revolutionary in
spite of being seemingly alone.

If you believe you have a story to add that could encourage other students, please write a 1-2 sentence description of what you would include and email it to matt@revolutionrising.net. We may use your story in this book.
