    Information Dear Youth Pastors,

    Souled Out Conferences would like to invite you to join us this December at Souled

    Out Winter. Souled Out Winter is a high school and middle school conference in the mountains committed to creating “greenhouse environments” through worship, speaking and

    small groups, that help students grow closer to Christ. The conference is Discipleship

    oriented in that each student will attend a D-Group (or Discipleship Group) each night after

    worship and on one morning session. D-Groups are led by College-age students who are

    dedicated to discussing issues to help students dig deeper in their relationships with Christ.

    The conference is held at the YMCA-Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, NC. The

    worship is led each year by Jonathan and Lisa and their band. The speaker this year will be

    Doug Compton, a traveling speaker who uses the Word to captivate listeners and change


    Each day there is plenty of free time in the afternoons which can be used for individual

    church activities, snow-skiing at Wolf Ridge (about 45 minutes drive from the Y) or Sugar

    Beach (1 ? hours), spending an afternoon at Fun Depot, playing basketball in the gym, doing

    the inside ropes course in the gym (if available) shopping or possibly ice skating in downtown stAsheville. There will also be a huge New Year’s Eve bash on December 31 to “worship in”

    the New Year together.

    This year our theme is “Restore, based on Psalm 51:12, Restore to me the joy of

    your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. This will encourage students

    to allow Christ to restore brokenness within their lives.

    Groups from all over the country are involved in Souled Out. It is a wonderful setting

    for students to open up and get real before God and with each other.

    We hope God will lead you to bring your group for a time of growth and fun and to ring

    in the New Year together at Souled Out Winter. In order to sign your group up for Souled Out

    Winter: please complete the attached agreement and medical release forms and send them

    back with your deposit of $25 per person, including students, adults, children and leaders.

    In His Grace,
