Ten years ago, CBFVA began offering events for students. Since then, CBFVA has offered 23 Mission Madness events, eight Fall Retreats and three Call Weekends. As our council continues to discern what God calls us to do, the dream of the Summit began.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” During the MLK weekend of 2020, CBFVA with host The Summit. This Spiritual Formation Conference for students (6-12 grade) will center on King’s famous quote by asking the question “what does it mean to be “Connected?”
The Summit will take place in Charlottesville, a place that just a couple of months ago was Ground Zero for injustice in the form of racism. What does God have to say about injustice? What does God say our role is in helping stop injustice?
