Leading the Way

  • Theme - Kaleidoscope

    When you look into a kaleidoscope, you encounter colorful reflections producing changing patterns. These reflections take a normal looking world and transform it into something more. With open eyes, kaleidoscopes truly change the way we see the world. And we believe it’s time for God to open they eyes of middle school students, to allow God’s love to become their kaleidoscope, and change the way they see God, others, themselves, and so much more.   


  • Speaker: Jeffrey Dean
