What is RISE Conference?
RISE is a student conference that seeks to empower, equip and send students into their cities to make a positive difference. We want to see this generation filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit with boldness to shift a culture and share the Gospel. Our heart is to see teenagers from across Florida make a marked impact on their schools, their families, and their cities. It is time for this generation to RISE UP and fight for Jesus.
