 THE VISION 

The greater Asheville area is unique. Things don’t typically work here like they would in other cities. We have watched too many churches and movements come and go leaving brokenness in their wake. While it’s one of the most beautiful places on earth, the spiritual condition is heavy and dark. It seems like too many Christians are powerless to help themselves so they are unable to help others. It’s as if they are christian by name only and find themselves struggling, ineffective and stuck. This requires a different kind of solution. 

 

The condition of our region is the reflection of individual christians that make up the local Churches. This awakening, revival must first be ignited in you and I. If you are genuinely impacted and transformed, you will be the catalyst for your family, friends and sphere of influence that God has placed you in.

 

This is not just an emotional experience nor is it simply leading a person to pray a prayer. This is your invitation to a life where Jesus is at the center of everything as your Saviour and Lord. A life of freedom and purpose. Walked out in love. The deeper life in Christ is a life that follows Christ, which is what we call discipleship. If you want to follow Christ, you need to learn to distinguish His voice from others. In doing so, you will be able to reflect and represent His heart and His ways. Not by your theology but by the practice of your theology. Not by your declarations but by your demonstrations. God through you. 

 

We believe that without an encounter with the real, living, holy God it is impossible to live a radical Christian life. The kind of encounter that uproots and changes your trajectory and alters your destiny. 

 

This is why we launched Immersion WKND in 2022 and are hosting it again this year, on halloween weekend. You may be asking, “How is a conference going to impact this area?”

 

This conference is going to take you on a journey. We will do a deep dive into spiritual deficiency, mental and emotional health, relationships, identity, and purpose. We have invited international speakers along with local pastors and ministry leaders to do a deep dive on these subjects. You will not only be encouraged but also challenged in your walk with Jesus, your purpose, and your calling.

 

IMMERSION WKND is a region-wide conference for the individuals in Asheville and surrounding area to ENCOUNTER JESUS, BE EQUIPPED, and IMPACT THE WORLD. 

 

We know there is a people who are agitated by the status quo and are willing to put everything on the line in order to see a movement of God in our generation and in our region! We are believing that you are one of them. So we invite you to help us propel this endeavor by partnering with us for Immersion WKND Conf ’23.

JOIN THE MISSION

By Partnering With Us.

We believe that by working together, we can make a profound impact on the lives of those who attend, encouraging them to deepen their relationship with God and embrace His unconditional love. The five ways you can partner with us: PRAYING, SHARING, SHOWING UP & INVITING, VOLUNTEERING, and FUNDING.

TO STAY CONNECTED

1. PRAY

Prayer is not an afterthought nor is it an addendum to the “real work”. Prayer was vital and central at the launch of the church and it must be for us now.  

2. SHARE

Help us to spread the word! Let's make a meaningful impact and extend this invitation to all who could benefit from this enriching experience. copy&paste: https://bit.ly/45c9dKN

3. SHOW UP & INVITE

Conferences are catalysts for change. Studies show that we develop convictions in environments away from our normal day-to-day life. Showing up matters.

4. VOLUNTEER

We are establishing volunteer teams to make this conference possible. There are 4 teams you can choose from: Ministry, Guest Services, Hospitality, and Production. Follow the prompts.

5. FUND

Unlock the opportunity to make a lasting impact by becoming a vital financial partner of IMMERSION WKND CONF '23. Your partnership will help create an unforgettable experience for attendees and this region.
