My four talks from the Epicenter Conference

This year I spoke at three different student winter conferences, and all three were great... a lot of fun, awesome conversations with students and fun times with staff. The most recent one was a couple weekends ago in Albany, New York, called Epicenter.

One of the fun things about this particular conference is that they let me do a series of talks all focused on telling stories about/by Jesus in a 21st century context. It was the first time I had done those sorts of talks all together, and it was a lot of fun. I thought I'd put them all in one place here, so you could see them if you like.


Here's the first one, talking about what it means to follow Jesus (from Luke 5). If you're one of the Minions around here at BHR, you've likely heard this talk or something like it before:


Talk two, retells some familiar parables from Luke 15:



 Talk three is a new one. I don't want to give away the surprise topic, but it starts with me reading a story. This video is the entire session, including worship and announcements and so on. If you just want to see the talk only, it starts at about 55:30 and ends at 01:27:47.



 And this, my last talk, retells the story of the Good Samaritan. Enjoy!
