What are you doing with your life? Are you sure that you know yourself? Well, Refined is a profound journey of healing on which you embark personally with Christ through Revelation 3:18. This power- packed conference will help youth and young adults understand the Laodicean patterns in their daily lives. You will also witness, practically, how Christ counsels us out of this condition to be refined (or tried) to His likeness and ready for His Second Coming. Come join us and experience revival in your faith, mission, work, studies, mental health, relationships, lifestyle, and much more!

Join us from Thursday, 18 August 2022 3:00 PM to Sunday, 21 August 2022 11:00 AM (MDT) in the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel at 2620 32 Ave NE, Calgary, AB T1Y 6B8.

“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
Revelation 3:21
