We are excited to announce that SOAR 2021 will be a live, in-person conference in Dallas July 6-8. This year’s conference will take place at the Hilton Anatole Hotel near downtown Dallas. Expect to see some familiar faces like Aaron Williams as one of our speakers and Soar Collective leading worship. SOAR21 will also have two concerts featuring Building 429 and Flame. We are anticipating a great response, so be sure to register your group now at soarconference.com.
We are aware of the potential hesitancy some may have traveling with a group to Dallas. As we plan for a great event, safety for our churches and for all participants at SOAR is a top priority. We are working with the hotel to ensure not only a safe, but great experience for all those who come to SOAR21.
SOAR21 will be all about worship. Our theme is Pause because of the need we see in current culture to call teenagers to pause and consider the holiness of God, why He deserves to be worshiped in a biblical way and how our biblical worship of a Holy God should make a kingdom impact in our daily lives. We believe right worship must be biblical worship. After calling upon people to consider the mighty works of God, the Psalmist makes a significant statement in Psalm 46:10 (ESV), “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth!” Our intention at SOAR21 is to be still and thoughtfully consider the greatness of God. Our hope is that teenagers will know that He alone is God and commit to making Him known to all nations.
Words cannot express how thankful we are for the support received from our BMA churches last summer with our online conference. The decision to move forward in that format was far from easy, but your participation proved to be an incredible source of encouragement for all those who worked tirelessly to create an event that honored our Lord and served the teenagers of the BMA.
As we gather together in Dallas, we are confident SOAR21 will be one to remember! The vision that drives us year after year is to lead teenagers to learn the Word, love the church and live sold out, radical lives for King Jesus. Our commitment to you is to honor Jesus in all we do. “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ” (Colossians 1:28).
