    Believe is AMAZING! We brought two kids to St Louis… and because those two came back to pumped from it, we then brought five to Anderson! (St Louis, Chicago, Anderson – general MidWest area…)

  31. I have taken groups to 4 different locations. All have been great Jr. High intentional programs. Atlanta is on the calendar for 2011. 5 Freebies would be awesome for the kids moving up who don’t have the bucks.

  32. BELIEVE is a great program! I’m looking forward to hitting up the Portland one again this year with our crazy kids!

  33. I’ve been taking groups to Believe almost as long as Johnny Scott has been involved with the BEST Jr. High weekend of the year! Kissimmee is the place to be next March, baby!!!!

    Josh, I’d love to win some tickets to the Anderson event. Our kids love it, and we always have kids who we scholarship.

  98. Things are tight everywhere. We live in a very small town in the Midwest in Indiana. Last year, the LORD worked through the Believe conference in Anderson in the life of a young lady who has been battling anorexia and bulimia. She admitted what she was going through there and opened up to her parents. She has been receiving treatment since and is doing very well. We would like to take more students to Believe in Anderson to give every opportunity for the LORD to continue to do great things!

  99. Believe is an awesome event. Last year was our first exposure and our JH teens loved it. Anderson, IN!

  100. Believe is by far the best Jr. High Event out there! Our Students refuse to miss it! – Anderson, IN

  101. Would love to go to believe in Anderson, IN

  102. I would love to go to Portland Believe

  103. Thomas Paukovitz August 16, 2010 at 8:15 am

    It would be awesome to go to the Atlanta Believe Conference.

  105. I am so adhd…forgeto to say Arlington, TX is where we would like to be….

  106. I wanna bring kids from Alaska to Portland!!!

  107. Believe has always been a key event in our ministry here at CCDS for our Jr. High students, and I look forward to taking them every year. Kissimmee, FL here we come!

  108. Scott Schlatter August 16, 2010 at 10:07 am

    Took only 10 students last year to believe and they came back on FIRE! This year they are already asking if we are going. Looks like I’ll have a boat load to take. Can’t wait to hit up Anaheim, CA!

  130. Awesome video! Kids had a great time last year look forward to taking a group again. We are in Cincinnati, Ohio

  131. I went to Believe and it was the best youth event I had ever been to. I can’t wait to go back and see what next year has in store for me

  132. The best program around to reach Jr. Highers with the love of Christ. I was blown away at how Jr. High intentional Believe was and how great a job they did at capturing this specific age group.

  133. I have taken Jr. High students to every Jr. High Believe except one…it is the one event that I plan everything else around. Jr. High Believe is what we use to fuel our spring and summer programming!

  134. I went to Believe at a Jr. High student and got to take students last year as a sponsor for the first time! It was AMAZING! Can’t wait to go back to TULSA again this year with our students! They’re already talking about it!

  135. I loved going to believe. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I loved everything from 123improv comedy to the untiltled skateboard company, and everything inbetween.
