Students from Mid-Atlantic Christian University attended the Next Level Conference (February 4-6, 2015) in Savannah, Georgia at Savannah Christian Church. Students (Dustin McCrea, Kevin Williams, Evan Tanner, Brandon Davis, Matthew Hughes, Emily Greene, and Tiffany Kriss) and staff (Vice President of Student Services, Dr. Kendall Greene, Campus Minister Roger Burns, and Enrollment Counselor, Corbin Kuhn), left campus Wednesday morning around 9 am and arrived in Georgia after 4 pm. The van ride was very interesting, with snoozing students, working students, talking students, and fun games being played during the trip. This Conference was not only an opportunity to get to learn about taking ministries to the Next Level, but the students who attended were able to get to know one another on a better level as well.
While at the conference, the students and staff learned how to take their churches and ministries to the “next level” through various opportunities. Savannah Christian Church opened their doors and shared some of their successes and failures so that those who attended the Conference could learn from them. The Conference consisted of, but was not limited to the following:

During the entire Conference, there was all around good rapport and communication. MACU student’s stayed in a nearby hotel, and had the opportunity not only to attend the Conference, but also to tour beautiful Downtown Savannah, and to stay up late playing cards, talking, or even doing homework. This was definitely a jam packed two days for MACU attendees, and the students are grateful to Dr. Greene & Roger Burns for chaperoning the trip.
The MACU van left Savannah on Friday around 5 pm and did not get back to campus until almost 1 am. This was definitely a very quick, long, and information loaded trip, but as MACU Junior and Resident Assistant (RA), Dustin McCrea said, it was a “great Conference and very useful if you are trying to take your ministry to the next level.
For those who are looking into ministry, involved in ministry, or who just want to better serve their churches, come check out Savannah, GA, with MACU next year at the Next Level Conference!
