It’s more than another event.
Imagine a time and space prayerfully designed to reach the deepest places of our hearts and pull us closer to Jesus. And for each person, that space is going to be different. Maybe that comes through screaming the lyrics of the song you hadn’t believed until you heard hundreds of others singing it with you. Maybe it’s a moment of stillness when the lights go down and God feels closer than the beat of your heart. It could be in a bold word that catalyzes a permanent change in your life or swapping stories with a complete stranger who gets you. Maybe it’s that character in the drama speaking all the words you haven’t figured out how to say yet, or a friend’s hand on your shoulder to remind you you’re never searching alone.
Zeteo isn’t about devising some sort of crowd-pleasing emotional-high experience… it’s about creating a space where God can move in the way that he moves: fully, intimately, distinctively.
We want to invite you to join us for our Zeteo Conference: An ecumenical youth conference designed for students and leaders who desire to draw closer and search deeper. Through four sessions of moving worship, engaging teaching, compelling drama, and challenging break-out seminars, our hope is that you and your group will find God right where he wants to meet you.
It is a greek word that means “to seek in order to find.” God has laid it on the hearts of the leadership team to start an event with this purpose entirely. We hope to create opportunities for youth and youth leaders a time to deepen their faith, and their relationships with each other. It is a weekend retreat like nothing your group has ever been a part of in the past. A weekend of fun, laughter, worship, messages, and experiences that youth will never forget.
Joshua Solowey! Joshua recently celebrated his 1 year anniversary of marriage with his wife Leah. He is a pastor at Ethos Church in Nashville TN. He also helps to train church planters across North America for Onward Church Planting. He has a huge heart for helping people walk in deep relationship with God and for making disciples that make more disciples.
You are able to stay at the attached Hilton and walk, or you will need to find transportation for your group to and from the convention center.
