WHY Come?

Winter Conference is a time for refreshment, reflection and relationships! Spend the weekend with the members of Columbia Faith and Action to hear from God's word, reflect on how to live well at Columbia and to receive immense encouragement for the school year. We often say that this weekend has the potential to CHANGE YOUR LIFE. You will make lifelong friendships and be refreshed in order to live well on campus and for the semester.

WHAT will we do?

Worship, study God's Word, small groups to share and spend time with one another and fun events like sledding, rock climbing, hiking and inside games! Need to study? No big deal! There is a ton of free time to study (or to play)!
