Upward Challenge - 4D Human

Upward Challenge - 4D Human 2018Upward Challenge is a week-long event that focuses on

  • introducing participants to the person of the Holy Spirit,
  • encourages them to seek a deeper walk with Jesus Christ, and
  • nurtures a growing relationship with God the Father.

This year's topic: 4-D Human

...life with the spiritual dimension

Does Christian discipleship seem 'flat'? Is there meant to be more than this? Jesus was radically different, full of life, hope, promise and power. And he wants us to have this kind of life - life with the spiritual dimension included.

So let's put on our 4D glasses and have a really good look at what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit, who he is and how he works in people's lives. The 4D Human theme explores...

  • Getting past the 'filters' which restrict our view of what God can do.
  • Walking in the footsteps of Jesus, the Holy Spirit empowered Pioneer of our faith.
  • Being energized by the Holy Spirit for supernatural living here and now.

Jesus invites us to step into a new reality. He called it the 'Kingdom of God' - the life of heaven starting now, on earth: God's reign. And it happens through the Holy Spirit. Open your eyes and be energized.

Please put this on your calendars and invite your friends.


Rising 8th graders - graduated seniors are welcome!
