The Christian Union Conference on Faith and Action

Nexus gathered students from nine influential universities for a life changing weekend of worship, prayer, speakers, small groups, fellowship, seminars and more.

With 2018's theme, "Turn the World Upside Down," Nexus' teaching and discussions explored the concepts of revival, evangelism and the call of the Great Commission. What does it look like to turn the world upside down with the Gospel?


Plenary Sessions

Students participated in vibrant worship and prayer, and learn from knowledgeable speakers in the four plenary sessions, which anchor the conference. Matt Bennett, Roland Warren, David Bryant and other dynamic speakers challenged students towards evangelism and revival with wisdom shared from the Scriptures. Watch here


Students expand their knowledge with the guidance of Christian leaders, who encouraged them to consider issues in light of God’s Word. Students asked questions and dug deeper in these interactive sessions. Students engaged in topics such as leadership, evangelism, revival, sexuality, and the supernatural with subject-matter experts and leading Christian thinkers.


As we draw near to God, He promises to draw near to us. Prayer is the means by which we receive from God, and are empowered to intercede on behalf of others. At Nexus, students participated in life-changing and powerful times of prayer, not only in plenary sessions, but also in the 24-hour prayer room. Students prayed with fellow students from across campuses as you seek His face and His will.

Fellowship and Networking

The world will not be turned upside down by individual Christians working alone, but rather by groups, networks, and bodies of believers gathering together for fellowship, breaking bread and prayer. As a network, Christians can amplify the power for cultural change. At Nexus there were opportunities to meet and spend time with fellow believers from across nine campuses – time spent going deep in prayer and relationships. Through small groups students forged new friendships that will, with God’s help, last beyond the conference and remain for years to come.


God’s word is living and active. Students were inspired by fellow students, who memorized and performed spoken word pieces taken directly from Scripture. A time of joy and celebration, SpokenWord is one of the unique highlights of the Nexus Conference. See performances here.
