Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age"- Matthew 28:18-20

Are you ready to welcome God back to school? Are you ready to LOVE your position as a teacher, principal, administrator or staff support worker? Are you ready to see God work through you to change your students and your school? If yes, join Christian leaders in public education as they share their insight and experience as disciples in education!

Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord- John 21:12

Welcome to the 2018 Upper Room Prayer Breakfast and Praise event in Columbia, South Carolina! In an effort to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year, Christ Teens is partnering with Moms In Prayer International to meet, greet, and pray for the 780,000+ students in South Carolina public schools. This earlier morning prayer breakfast of 180 men and women will serve to “jump start” the next 180 school days. We will approach God's throne for His grace and mercy for our teachers and students. The 180 men and women will meet on the 25th floor of the Capitol City Club. From this scenic view, we will pray over the State Capitol. After our time of prayer and breakfast, we will proceed to the steps of the State House for a time of praise and worship.

Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him...The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus. Acts 8: 31-35

May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion--Psalm 20:2

Do you have "this" teen--You know, the one who pushes every button within you? Or, do you have "that" teen: the one who is truly sent from God yet fear grips you, the parent, over the child's future? You will be in good company on this evening as our panel of parents walk you through these often tender and sometimes thunderous years.

Join us for a question and answer session where you can ask (or cry) over "this or that" teen. We look forward to encouraging you in your faith, building you up in hope, and teaching you how to walk with God through these tender and sometimes thunderous years.
