Location

Arlington Memorial Baptist Church

Life can be exhausting, overwhelming and difficult. To make it worse, it often feels like everything we use to alleviate the pain we experience just makes things harder. The problem is, we keep trying the same things over and over again. The road of life is a hard road to walk.

The people of Israel were on the same road, and the prophet Jeremiah called out to them (almost 3000 years ago) with a message of the way for them to find true rest!

Jeremiah 6:16 states “Thus says the LORD: Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and find rest for your souls…”

 This year at Breakout ’18, we will be looking at the meaning of this verse and discovering THE GOOD WAY – a way that God has provided for us in order to find true rest for our souls.

Breakout Elective Sessions

A huge part of the Breakout experience is the Breakout Elective Sessions.  Students will have the opportunity to participate in these smaller group sessions to dig deeper into the theme of the weekend with local youth leaders and their peers.

Check out the Breakout 17 sessions now to plan for how you will spend your Saturday at Breakout!

? 101 : Who does HISTORY say that Jesus is? // Craig Fullerton
Did you know that there are at least 10 independent references to Jesus OUTSIDE of the Bible? Do you know that no respectable historian really doubts the existence of a 1st Century Jewish teacher named Jesus? What about relics like the Shroud of Turin – the supposed burial cloth of Jesus? Have you ever heard of the James Ossuary – the supposed bone box of Jesus’ brother? Come and dig into ALL KINDS of evidence for the historical Jesus.

? 102 :  Jesus – the author // Angela Schneider & Cherish Wolf
Acts 3:15 says, “…you killed the author of life, but God raised Him from the dead. We are all witness to this.” Who is the author of your life? What is holding you back from handing the pen over to God? What does it look like to have Jesus as the author of your life? What does God desire in your life or what is His perfect Will for you? We will incorporate some journaling as well as some worship music as we discover Jesus as the author of our life.

? 103 : The Names of Jesus // David Neidlinger
There are over 200 names and titles of Jesus found in the Bible. While this is amazing, it shouldn’t surprise us as these names relate to His nature, His position in the Trinity, and His work on earth on our behalf. So what is the importance of these names? Why does it matter? Names have meaning. Many of yours do as well! Lets dig into many of the fascinating names and titles of Jesus as we discuss the question of the conference, “Who do you say that I am?”

? 104 :  Reading the Bible for All it’s Worth // Jen Dyer
You know you should read your bible but where do you start, and when you do start how do you get anything out of it? Come and learn practical tips on how to read the Bible for all it’s worth!

? 105 : Jesus – the Greatest Lover // Elise Lawrence
“Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so…” I’m sure most of you have heard this song before but what does it mean to be loved by God? What significance does it bring into our day-to-day lives? Has this truth changed how we see ourselves and how we see one another? What do we choose to believe or act on when our feelings don’t line up with the Truth about who God says we are? In this session we will address these questions and discuss our ability to activate that which is already ours IN Jesus Christ – a freedom in life that leads to real transformation!

? 106 :  The Image of Christ // Matt Beresh
Take a visual journey through the history of Christian art; namely, artworks that depict a likeness of Jesus.  Where does this visual interpretation of Jesus come from? Is it biblical?  Jesus asks, “Who do you say that I am?”. In this session we will ask, “What do you say that He looks like?”  Studying the appearance of Jesus may not be as important as knowing His heart, but you have to wonder if these popular images of Christ are fair, accurate, or even plausible.

? 107 :  Who do you say that I am? So what? // Brett White
Why do you believe that Jesus is the Christ?  Is it because you have always been told that by parents, youth pastors and your church? Or do you believe He is the Christ because it has become your belief? In this seminar we will share what He claimed to be and how it has to become personal to you. We will also share ways to share your faith and how to stand up for your beliefs in  a lost world.

? 108 :  Addressing the Jesus Gap // Josh Miller
This session is available for adults, youth leaders, and student leaders of youth ministries. Over the course of the 3 elective sessions, youth leaders will be guided through topics centered around the importance of Jesus in our youth ministries. Adults will 1) discuss the theology of Jesus, 2) brainstorm suggestions to address the “Jesus Gap” in our youth ministries, and 3) share success stories and struggles of our youth ministries!
