On Friday-Saturday June 21-22, nearly 30 young adults age 18-28 converged at Stone House Farm in Jordan, MN as the first class of The Overcomer Course.

Some of the young adults are in the workplace, some are in school, some are in between, but all came to hear what God has said in His Word and how it applies to their lives.

In eight sessions over those two days addressing the most important issues in life, such as, believing God and His gospel, trusting God’s Word as the basis for wise thinking and living, evangelism and discipleship, time and work, singleness and marriage, and the local church (with pastor Ace Davis), attendees were exhorted to love God and embrace His design on all these issues.

Not surprisingly, our faithful God exceeded our plans and expectations and He alone gets all the glory! Despite lots of rain outside, God enriched all of our lives on the inside —staff, volunteers, and attendees—as we dug into God’s supernatural, timeless truths.

We were also encouraged in the bonus sessions between the main sessions, which included mealtime interviews with Christian nutrition and fitness coach Haley Erickson on caring for the body, Dan and Kelly Haugland on how God restores lives and marriages, and even a short interview with my 90-year-old mother on evangelism and discipleship.

It was heartening to watch the young adults connect with each over the two days, eating meals, taking walks, playing ping pong and foosball, and talking with each other.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we’ll share some of the highlights and audio clips of the Course, as our way of thanking you for praying for and supporting this new endeavor of The Overcomer Foundation, the organization that directs The Christian Worldview Radio Program.
