THE HEART AND SOUL OF RISE CONFERENCE IS SIMPLE:
Each year close to 3,000 students come to Orlando, Florida to experience a life-changing movement. Featuring amazing speakers and powerful worship by the top worship teams in the world, RISE is a weekend that will make a lifetime impact on you. RISE is more than just a conference though, it is an action…it is a declaration for this generation to Rise up and make a difference. Rise and represent Jesus. Rise and be unashamed of the Gospel. Rise and be bold and courageous. Rise and move in the power of the Holy Spirit. Rise and shift a culture. Rise and fight for the Kingdom of Heaven. We live in a generation of young people consumed by what the world has to offer and now it’s time RISE UP and show the world what Jesus has to offer
Our mission is to empower students to be their best selves by building a relationship with Christ. We do this by building experiences that will enhance their lives and create life long memories
