"No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
SENIOR YOUTH EVENT
Grade 9-12 and Youth Leaders
What is Expedition Now? It’s a one-day, Senior Youth Team Challenge event!
Register your youth group in teams of 4-5 people (including 1 leader) to come and compete in a series of challenges on our SBC campus!
These activities are designed to be completable for the majority of teams and you will be scored on your time, quality or completion percentage. The winners, and some odd-ball prizes will be presented at the evening session!
After the evening session, we move to the Emmanuel E-Free Church for a concert with The Color. This concert is part of the registration for Expedition Now, but is also open to the public!
Early Bird Registration (before September 22, 2023) – $70.00
Registration (Until October 6th) – $80.00
With - THE COLOR!
THE COLOR is a 2x Juno Award winning CCM Pop Band residing from the Canadian Prairies.
These bona fide road warriors have garnered great success in the industry with a number of singles charting in the Top 50 on Billboard’s CCM Audience Airplay (Surprise at #27 and The Kind Of Man at #42). Along with 20+ GMA ‘Covenant Awards’.
The Color has received not one, but 2 Juno Awards for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year. One in 2018 for the album First Day of My Life and most recently, in 2022 for the album No Greater Love. These small town prairie boys boast an energetic live show and songs that emanate hope.
Gord Penner - Speaker
Gord Penner loves motivating young people to dig deeper into the Word. He has spent the past 30 years teaching Bible courses at Steinbach Bible College and enjoys the many opportunities he gets to teach in churches throughout North America.
Gord grew up as a “missionary kid” in Northern Manitoba and inherited a love for the communities and the people of the North which continues to influence his ministry and his teaching. This missions heart brought them to Belize for several years, and he admits that “half my heart is in Northern Manitoba and half of it is in Belize,” adding that the rest (which is still a LOT) is at SBC. Gord and his wife Laura have four married children, who love music, ministry, and “living loud.”
Gord is excited to be our speaker for Expedition Now 2023!
