Desperation Alabama. Church of the Highlands. July 31-Aug 2, 08

Youth Leaders, Thank you for bringing your students to Desperation this weekend at Church of the Highlands!
God has transformed the lives of thousands of students at the Colorado and Michigan events this summer and we anticipate this weekend to be a powerful, passionate weekend. We have been praying for you and your students as you make the journey to Birmingham. I’ve been so pleased with how many students are choosing to become sincere Christ followers, worshippers, and diligent intercessors. Thousands have taken the Desperation Vow so that we can put feet to our prayers following the event.
God has given each of the speakers’ powerful messages for Desperation this summer and I’m so excited that they will be able to hear Pastor Chris Hodges this weekend. He has a unique ability to call lethargic young people to be diligent in the call that God has on their lives. Our updated schedule has him speaking on Friday morning. So, make that session a priority! Additionally, Ron Luce will not be able to make this year’s event. Due to some conflicting events, he needs to be in Texas this weekend. However, Layne Schranz oversees all of student ministries (college, high school and junior high) at Church of the Highlands. He has grown it from a handful of students to a thriving youth ministry with hundreds of students and an excellent internship program. Furthermore, he is a race car driver and connects with students in a great way. At our Colorado event, I had multiple students raving about the session that he did here. It will be great!
Finally, I am so excited to have Leeland with us this year. They are authentic, your worship leaders with a heart to encounter God and declare His greatness to a generation. Leeland and Desperation Band together are a perfect fit.
I can’t wait for our time together! May Jesus be near you as you travel! See you Thursday!
