Just Claim It 2 / YPAC Leadership Summit Update

8 DAYS TO JCI2/YPAC SUMMIT – Let us pray that God will hold back the forces of evil as youth and young adults prepare to claim our cities for Christ.  Get connected with Jesus with the 40 day prayer journey (today is day 30 of 40).  We would encourage every leader to connect their youth group with this experience before we get to Columbus.

REGISTRATION ENDS ONLINE – Plusline registration will end on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 12:00 noon EST.  All hotel reservations will cut off the day.  We encourage you to register ASAP.

ON-SITE REGISTRATION – On site registration will be open for Individual Delegate ($140) and the Workshops Only ($60) as long as supplies last.  There are no Sabbath only workshop or Meal Tickets options for this event.  The Workshops Only ($60) is still a bargain for Sabbath only.  Have someone purchase for you on-site on call Plusline by Tuesday. Thanks for your understanding!
