BIG WEEKEND 2018
B.I.G. Weekend is just that….BIG. We’re joining with several student ministries from all over Edmond to connect and learn what it means to follow Christ. Students will spend time all together in large group sessions as well as small group time, with grade-level groupings in host homes all over Edmond.
This year our theme is Kingdom. The kingdom we all understand and live in is broken by sin and suffering; a Broken Kingdom. This kingdom is riddled with natural disasters, terrorism, fear, anxiety, depression, divorce, illness, and death. However, there’s another kingdom that catalogues nothing but peace, comfort, glory, and life, and is filled with the presence of God; a Restored Kingdom. The ground that lies between these two is where God’s people live on mission to give a glimpse of the coming, Restored Kingdom to all who are living in the Broken. We’re excited to see how the Lord will use this message to orient the hearts of students around His gospel and mission.

SMALL GROUP LEADER
A small group leader hangs out with a group of students for the weekend, gets to know them and discusses what they have learned from the sessions using provided discussion guides. You will stay in host homes with your students. Small group leaders are usually in college or early 20's. We will need around 90 small group leaders for this event.
Would you like to be a SMALL GROUP LEADER?
A host home opens up their home and provides transportation (a co-host can help with this), provides a place for students to sleep, eat (you and/or a co-host will provide the food), shower, meet in their small groups and hang out during the weekend. You will have at least one small group leader who will be in charge of the students. You will give your house rules to the small group leader and they will be in charge of enforcing them. You will usually have between 10-15 students of one grade/gender (ie...6th-grade girls, 9th-grade boys, etc...). The small group leader will usually arrive at your home on Friday, February 17th around 5:00 pm. The students will start arriving around 6:00 pm. There will be a Host Home meeting before Big Weekend.
