Franciscan University Stuebenville to Host Encounter Milwaukee Conference
Franciscan University of Steubenville has become renowned for their dynamic youth and adult conferences and now is partnering with Arise Milwaukee to host a Steubenville Young Adult Conference called Encounter Milwaukee at the Archbishop Cousins Center! Arise is very excited about this opportunity to bring young adults from all parts of the region to this event.
Encounter Milwaukee will be featuring some powerful speakers from their ministry team:
Paul George is a husband, father, and follower of Jesus. A passionate believer and communicator of the Gospel, Paul has traveled the world proclaiming God’s love and freedom as a parish youth minister, diocesan director, author, and full-time evangelist. He holds a master’s degree in theological studies from the University of Dallas. Paul lives in Lafayette, Louisiana, where he directs the campus ministry program at University of Louisiana/Our Lady of Wisdom Parish and serves as a professor of theology at the Aquinas Institute on campus. Paul also co-founded and directs Adore Ministries, a nonprofit Catholic organization whose mission is to call all people to worship God with their entire lives. He and his wife have four children.
Pete Burds- Ever since his reconversion to Catholicism through a high school youth ministry program, Pete Burds has used his five loaves and two fish for the sake of building the kingdom. Through storytelling, retreats, and leading worship, he has proclaimed the freedom found in Christ to thousands. He is a graduate of Franciscan University and is the campus minister at Saint Thomas More High School in Milwaukee. He also serves as the director of Evangelization for Arise Milwaukee, a parish mission-based evangelization effort. Pete is a wanna-be philosopher, has a mild obsession with the band Switchfoot, and because of Christ, finds himself living a life greater than he could have dreamed.
The Encounter Milwaukee Conference begins on Saturday November 8th and runs from 10AM to 10PM, with a Sunday Vigil Mass included. Registration opens on July 14th at http://www.arisemissions.org/what-is-encounter-milwaukee.html
