WHAT IS YOUTHWAVE?
YouthWave is a conference for the youth focused on global leadership & Christ-centered identity formation, hosted by the Streamside Ministry and churches in the SF Bay Area. We desire to mobilize the leaders of the next generation through an encounter with the love of Jesus Christ and engage them to grow in their God-given identity and leadership. We envision creating a platform through our worship, elective seminars, small groups, mentorship, and fellowship where God will powerfully carry out His will for all of us.

Discovering a Spiritual Discipline of Spending Quiet Time
We have been called and designed to spend personal time with God as we grow older and in our faith. The spiritual discipline of spending quiet time takes daily development and practice to create a transforming space where God can meet us and speak to us. Spending time alone with God should be the most delightful part of our day as we learn to reflect, meditate, wrestle, hear from God, be encouraged, and be strengthened by our living God. Christianity is not religion, it is a personal and intimate relationship with God!
