District Blitz is an annual student ministries conference, for both high and middle school students grades 7-12, hosted by the North Central District of the EFCA and the Minnesota Iowa Baptist Conference. The purpose of District Blitz is: To provide a conference that challenges students to love God, love one another, and love the lost. This year the conference will be held in Duluth. The theme for this year is "No Filter". We live in a social media centered world. We live our lives online where we post, edit, filter, delete, follow, and ignore. No Filter is about living our lives for Jesus as it was always meant to be lived-in truth, honesty, accountability, and biblically-centered relationships.
Each rally includes worship with Red Letter Hymnal, student led prayer, challenging messages by powerful speakers are the highlights at each of the four rallies. The time at rallies is core to the District Blitz experience and your youth group will be energized by the other 2500 people in attendance.
Begin praying now for our speaker and worship leaders at each of the rallies.
We desire students to go deeper in the faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ, so we are offering a number of different seminars and workshops that will encourage them to live out their faith in all areas of their life.
Following each of the rallies, groups will have a time to meet to discuss and interact with what they just heard. This is the most important and strategic part of the weekend. Our prayer is that everyone will authentically share what God is teaching them personally in the community of people they came with.
We believe prayer moves...people, relationships, and situations. About 45 minutes prior to each rally, we will have a time set aside for students and leaders that want to commit our rally time to the Lord. This time is spent in large group and small group prayer time. Prayer is a major emphasis of this weekend.
