Awake and Alive exists to Inspire Hope Filled Young Adults through encouraging, Christian community


Our Next Online Young Adult Event

October 25th - 6:30PM CDT - ZOOM ONLINE

Author Amber Albee Swenson is our featured speaker for our October online gathering.  Here is the big idea we'll be exploring that night!

Change the narrative: Are you prone to thinking things like, "You're worthless," or "you always mess up?" Do you talk yourself into indulging in things you shouldn't because "you only live once" or "I'm pretty good in the other areas of my life and so and so is much worse, so..." We're going to talk about common self talk: the things that routinely go through our minds and learn how we can "change the narrative" so that we're taking every thought captive for Christ. 

Amber Albee Swenson is actively involved in ministry to children, teens and women.  She has authored four full-length books, 2 mini-books for Time of Grace and co-authored one book for NPH. She's blogged for Holy Hen House and currently for Time of Grace. Her podcast, Little Things (Time of Grace) airs each Sunday. Her husband and four children (20, 18, 15, and 12) are her greatest joys and the reason she stays on her knees and her toes.

SPECIAL THANKS to Brandon Steenbock who led our September event called "Speak Your Truth" - video replay will be coming soon.

SAVE THE DATE:  November 15th with Author and Pastor Luke Thompson as we listen to insights gleaned from his book: "Your Life Has Meaning"



This past January, we gathered with 70 people in our third annual Awake and Alive conference. What happened was everything that we prayed might happen. That young adults could find a safe place to share some of their story. That older adults could be humble enough to share the deeper realities of theirs. What transpired was life giving in so many ways. God was honored, Jesus was shared, hurt hearts breathed again and the joy of the Lord truly was our strength. We are grateful for the time, talents and ministries of so many people and to see younger and older generations come together and find a common ground and hope in Christ!

Many of our 2020 conference speakers and sessions were recorded and are now available to Christian ministries as they serve for and with the 18-25 generation.
