The High School Student Leadership Conference is an annual 3-day event and is the highlight of the year for many Kenyan students. It includes sessions with guest speakers, workshops, times of devotion and worship, and fun outdoor activities. Having a time away from home with the Lord can be life changing for young people. Apart from the worries and cares of the day to day, it can provide an experience that allows them to grow in their faith and head back into "normal" life feeling encouraged and equipped.
Previously, E.I. has taken small mission teams comprised of U.S high school students from Cole Valley Christian High School to the conference. These past teams have helped coordinate events, participate in workshops and engage with the Kenyan students. They have shared their personal stories and joined in teaching and learning worship songs.
The conference is a time where students are encouraged to make the most of every opportunity God gives them and to pursue with determination the dreams and goals that He has planted in them. They are challenged to know who they are in Christ and to freely and joyously use all of their talents and resources for God's purposes. This event is very impactful. Some of the attendees have come to salvation during the conference and many more have told us of how they have grown in their faith due to the teachings they received.
