September 15-16, 2017
Lisa Potter and an amazing group of women who are passionate about ministering to teen girls will sing, laugh, and dig in the Word with girls 6-12th grade. They will challenge them to rise above the status quo for their generation and make a difference in their world. They will have a great time while being equipped to impact. Our goal is for every girl to discover her passion, believe in God to do great things in her life, and fall in love with Jesus. There will be opportunities to meet and talk with other girls facing the same things as you and find hope and answers for the struggles you have.
Cost: $60 early bird before August 18th ($70 after) for teens and $30 for sponsor/leaders
Place: Impact Center, 5201 Dayton Blvd, Chattanooga TN
Time: Friday 7-10 pm – Saturday 9 am-3 pm
There will be an after party when we conclude on Friday. Join us for more fun, food, and fellowship as we hang out and get to know each other. We will stay for about an hour after we finish the session.
The facility we are meeting in is actually a youth center used for teens every week. There is a chapel area for the sessions but also a game area with pool tables, carpet ball, air hockey, foosball, and more. A cafe is also located in this building where we will have drinks, snacks, donuts, candy and more. Each girl who attends will receive a GLAM t-shirt. You do not want to miss this awesome weekend!
G.L.A.M. stands for Girls Living Above Mediocrity and our goal is to challenge and encourage young women to rise above the status quo and make a difference in their world. We believe that girls cannot reach their full potential without a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We know that the truth of God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit can change any heart, any life, at any time and any place. With God all things are possible.
Without question, today’s youth face great challenges as they strive to serve Christ. But we are encouraged as we meet many young people who are serious about their relationship with God and dedicated to making a difference in their world.
Our goal is to:
- Share the good news of the gospel with young people.
- Provide teaching and training so that teens can grow in their relationship with God.
- Elevate the importance of God’s Word as a weapon in their lives and teach them how to use it.
- Provide opportunities for young people to go on mission with God and partner with him in kingdom work.
- Demonstrate the truth that the greatest adventure is a life lived in total surrender to God.
To reach these goals we host an annual GLAM girls event, produce materials and resources for personal growth, address relevant topics and provide biblical solutions for making right choices. We partner with churches, schools, camps, and other youth organizations in order to reach young people with the truth and we provide counseling and life coaching.
The needs of young people are great all around the world. For this reason, GLAM has conducted events in partnership with churches and missionaries all over the globe. Internationally, the need for biblically centered youth events is significant. We are excited to report that through our international ministry we have seen young people trust Christ, engage with their local church, and continue on to impact their country for Christ.
Lisa Potter is the Director of Student Ministries at DFM and she oversees the vision and direction of GLAM. She is accompanied by a great team of volunteers who have a heart for young people and are committed to investing their lives.
