Kalahari Resort and Convention Center
Everyone needs a hero. And yet, the older we get the more we realize that heroes aren’t supernatural. The best hero stories are those of ordinary people doing extra-ordinary things. Scripture is filled with accounts like these. David, Esther, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These accounts aren’t random. They aren’t disconnected. They are part of a single narrative in which every hero points beyond itself to one who is greater, one who is better, one who is true. “HERO” will lead participants on an action filled journey that reveals the greatest, better, truest hero of all- Jesus. Jesus, our hero who comes to save.
