Awake and Alive



Awake and Alive: a Christian Event ministry for the 18-25-year-old generation in SE Wisconsin. 

Awake and Alive hosts two events each year, a one day event in June and a two day conference in January that brings together young men and women from all over SE Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest to experience the encouragement, inspiration, and community that comes when the hope of Jesus Christ is at the center.  While we are not a church, we hope that our time together might be a spiritual mile marker for those who come, a time when their faith life is challenged, encouraged, and deepened in a way that helps young adults take a new level of ownership of the awesome gift of Grace in and helps them share that gift with the people around them.

This year's January Conference theme is "Take Hold of the Gift" 

The book of Philippians is often referred to as Paul's letter of JOY and our theme this year is based on his encouragement in chapter 3 "Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me." 


We talk about the "Gift" of God's grace that we have received freely through Jesus Christ, but what does it mean to really "take hold of the gift"? 


This year's conference will bring a focus on some of the ways we transition from "knowing" Christian information, to taking hold of this reality in such a way that we come to take some ownership in our foundational relationship with God through Jesus Christ and how that touches our identity, changes the way we view shame and inspires us to bring healing to the world around us.

As we get ready for Awake and Alive Winter Break 2018, we encourage you to check out The Point of Grace campus ministries for more opportunities to gather together as a generation!
