During MLK weekend, hundreds of students from all over the Northeast gathered together at our largest student conference of the year: The Epicenter Experience.
When asked to express areas of their hearts where God is needed most and the conflicts of life that need to be surrendered at the foot of the Cross, students wrote down their humble requests as they prayed.
The image above reflects a sampling of what these students were asking God to rescue them from. The larger the word, the more times students prayed for that very subject.

Featuring: Tommy, Student at UNH

Of all possible future careers, Mission Work was not even a blip on the radar screen for 18-year-old Tommy.
Quite the contrary. Driving the final stretch of 1-95 to UNH back in August 2010, the Florida transplant determined to reinvent himself over the next four years -- whatever it took to wield power over others, to be the envy of all those around.
These plans met with a roadblock, however, when Tommy showed up at a Cru meeting his sophomore year: "They were talking up this Epicenter Conference, and even though I felt uncomfortable, awkward, and suspicious, I wanted to go. I guess I really like road trips."
So that's how Tommy found himself in Albany, NY, January of 2012, where he began a journey that looks quite different from his previous plan.
