What is Expedition Now? It is a one-day Team-Youth Challenge event. (for those of you who know about IMPACT, this is SBC’s new youth event replacing IMPACT) That means it is a youth event for youth groups to register in teams of 4-5 people to come and compete in the challenge portion of the event. The day starts of with a main session with Vince Kehler, followed by Lunch.

Then the afternoon is the entire Mennonite Heritage Village filled with Camps, Ministries and SBC students who will be hosting challenges for your teams to complete. 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 may be some odd-ball prizes will be presented at the evening session which comes right after supper. That sessions will have speaker Myra Gerbrandt followed by a short break.

After the evening session comes the Expedition Now Concert where we have Bold as Lion leading a concert including Scribe and Jordan Janzen from the Color. This concert will be open to the public starting October 1 for tickets. Expeditioners (event participants) get priority to to the concert. Check back after October 1 for more details.

Whether it be her role as a worship leader, a speaker, a mother and wife, or a shopper at SuperStore, she believes every environment is an opportunity to share the presence of Jesus.

Myra and her husband Cam have three amazing adult boys and are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary this summer. To celebrate they are taking a month-long road trip where they will attempt to live out of their minivan, hike, kayak, lay on the beach and explore many new sights along the East Coast. One might even call it….an “EXPEDITION” 


Grade 9-12 and Youth Leaders

Coming 10.22.2022

Do you not know? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young people stumble and fall;

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;  they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint

Isaiah 40:28-31
