Inviting International Students to Join us - April 6th-10th, 2021
The international student track at Word Alive is a fantastic opportunity for international students to discuss the Bible more deeply, as well as think about topics relevant to discipleship and preparation to return home. The conference is completely free and is jointly organised by Friends International & OMF.
This year, the international student track will take place from Tuesday, April 6th to Saturday, April 10th, and will once again be online using Zoom.
Overview & Guest Speaker
Our main speaker this year is Peter Teagle, who will be speaking from the book of Colossians on the theme of ‘Hearts and Minds Fixed on Jesus’. Along with daily seminars on:
- Life after graduation: setting godly priorities.
- Gods, ghosts, spirits and ancestors.
- Relationships: singleness and marriage.
This year’s track also features an extra day with four exciting new seminars on:
- When things fall apart: coping with suffering.
- Maintaining your spiritual walk.
- Finding a church back home… and staying.
- How to share your testimony with family and friends.
