BIG WEEKEND 2019 (aka Deep Impact)
This year our theme is Renew. Over the weekend (Feb 22-24) we’ll look at the life of one of Jesus’ 12 disciples, Peter. We’ll witness the renewal of Peter’s own life as we follow the narrative of his discipleship with Christ, his encounter with the risen Christ, and his ministry of the gospel after the ascension of Christ. We’re excited to see how the Lord will use this message to orient the hearts of students around His gospel and mission.
Our main sessions on Friday and Saturday will be held at Quail Springs Baptist Church which will provide an incredible opportunity for hundreds of students from the area to gather together and worship the Lord. Our prayer is that this corporate gathering will show a broader picture of the church and encourage the students to realize they are not alone in their faith. Throughout the weekend about 8-10 students will stay at a Heritage host home along with 2 Heritage small group leaders. These leaders will facilitate small group discussions and encourage the students to recognize the power and relevance of God’s Word. We will have an Amazing Race for the Heritage students and wrap things up at Heritage on Sunday morning in the Youth Room and later in the main service.

Upon graduation, Jason signed a football scholarship at The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) where he would be a 4 year starter and 4 year letter winner at Fullback. Though raised in a home that taught him to love and fear God, it was not until his sophomore year at Ole Miss when he began to walk faithfully with Jesus. In 2009 Jason enjoyed a brief stint with the Baltimore Ravens through the pre-season before embracing the call to ministry. Since college, Jason has been actively involved in traveling the country preaching God’s word in demographically diverse environments.
