HIGH IMPACT WEEKENDS FOR STUDENT MINISTRIES


Everything about Deep Freeze – from the main sessions and seminars, to the outrageous fun and abundant free time options – is carefully crafted to be a catalyst for you and your ministry. Deep Freeze is an environment designed by New England youth leaders for New England churches.

And it keeps getting better! We continue to prayerfully and intentionally refine the experience to maximize the impact. We cover the details so you can do what you do best: invest in the lives of students.

2018 WEEKENDS

February 23-25, 2018 (Phone Registrations Only)

SPEAKER: STUART HALL

Stuart Hall is the founder and director of Dash Student Leadership, Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise the standard of influence among America’s teens by developing students as spiritual leaders. His fourteen-plus years of youth ministry experience include three highly successful local church ministries and work with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His unique blend of humor and powerful application makes him one of America’s best student communicators.

BAND: OBB

The trio’s infectious songs, infused with hope amidst a backdrop of colorful pop, are connecting with young fans desiring to sing along to something that matters.  The Oswald Brother Band, aka OBB, is Zach, Jacob and Nich.  Lovers of all-things music, the brothers have been sharpening their musical abilities for as long as they can remember.

Band practice consumes much of their free time, something the guys are committed to in a quest to continually improve their craft.   Zach explains, “You don’t have to wait until you get older. Once you start realizing what that gift is that God has given you, start multiplying it. Start making that something you can use to reach more people.”

March 2-4, 2018 (Phone Registrations Only)

SPEAKER: JOEY TODD

My name is Joey. I am a husband, a Dad, and a Christ follower.  I live in the great city of Wilmington, NC.  This is where I was born, where I climbed my first tree, went to my first school dance, had a crazy middle school crush on my now wife (#win), marched in the drumline at Michael Jordan’s Alma Mater,  and served as Student and College Pastor.

Over the last ten years I have been blessed with the opportunity to speak, teach and create incredible environments for thousands of teenagers and college students to see, hear and experience who God is.  I love speaking and teaching God’s Word in a way that challenges the creative process and isn’t just relevant, but applicable and life changing.  I also love coming alongside people in the trenches of ministry and working to bring a fresh perspective and creative approach to hit the moving target of students (not literally hitting students…well maybe…who knows).

In August of 2014, Miles and his wife Courtney were called to launch Auburn Community Church with a group of families in Auburn, AL, where Miles currently serves as the Lead Pastor. Auburn Community Church is a thriving, multi-generational church reaching hundreds of college students and families in the Auburn area.

BAND: SING LOVE

Sing Love is a collective. Their vision is to lead people into the throne room of God and then step out of the way so everyone can experience the love and glory of Jesus Christ. Sing Love consists of 20+ (and counting) worship leaders who have a passion to lift up the name of Jesus through music and art. Sing Love can look and feel very differently from one event to another, but what remains true about the band is wherever they go they will glorify the name of Christ with every chance they get.

Micah Beckwith of Sing Love sums it up by saying, “Our prayer and vision is that everyone in the audience would go deeper into the presence of God. We want people who walk away from a Sing Love event to remember the time they had an encounter with their Creator who loves them deeply! If that happens then we’ve succeeded.”

March 16-18, 2018

SPEAKER: LUCAS RAMIREZ

Lucas Ramirez develops next generation leaders. He is a man renewed by the love of Jesus and loves to inspire passion for Christ in others. He currently serves as Executive Director for The Gathering Place (thegp.org), a Christian leadership development organization that impacts over 12,000 students each year with the mission to reach, equip and send them with the power of the Gospel. He is a graduate of Eastern University’s Youth Ministry program and also serves on the ministry council for the National Network of Youth Ministries. Lucas now resides in Coastal Georgia, but being a native to Argentina, he is proud to be from the south. Lucas married the love of his Thea and they have three kids: Luci, Max and Teddy.

Deep Freeze runs every weekend from January 5th until March 18th, 2018

WHAT TO EXPECT

Large Group Gatherings

Deep Freeze features 4 large group gatherings with engaging worship from up and coming bands and rich teaching from compelling speakers. We craft each gathering to engage a wide spectrum of students and make sure the truth of God’s story is centerstage.

Small Group Discussions

Our mission is to advance and support the work of the local church and local youth ministry. In each Deep Freeze weekend, we carve out significant blocks of time at key moments for your group to have discussion. We believe this is the best way to ensure that the 40 hours of Deep Freeze have 52 weeks of impact for you. We always give the youth leader the last word.

Breakout Sessions

Breakout sessions at Deep Freeze engage students in a smaller environment. Our experienced team offers an option for students no matter where they are on their spiritual journey, from those with no Christian context to those seeking Christ and deeper discipleship.

Leaders Meeting

Leaders Meetings at Deep Freeze are not just information, they are inspiration. We LOVE youth workers and take time each morning to gather to open God’s Word and pray. Many leaders note this time as one of the highlights of their year.
