Life-Changing Event
Many students went home from Radiate 2013 with an eager passion to further serve Jesus Christ where they are, with the conference influencing them to grow in their faith through missions.

"This was the most life changing thing because I finally found my true calling, missions," said Rebekah Eroh of Weatherly, PA. "I feel like God is calling me to that."

The local outreach and missions-focused opportunities connected deeply with some participants.

"We think we have to go overseas but we can do so much here and now," said Sara Villa of Buffalo, NY.
