2016 Forward Conference - Free Chapel

TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN

June 23-25

Forward Conference is where a passion for Jesus ignites dreams and empowers the next generation to live out their God given purposes.

In 2004, God called Pastor Jentezen Franklin to host the very first Forward Conference at Free Chapel in Gainesville, Georgia. Five hundred students encountered God and left the conference filled with God’s love for their generation. Since that time, thousands of students have traveled to Duluth, GA to be inspired to live for Jesus.

Forward Conference is more than unforgettable games, phenomenal worship and world-class speakers. It is a call to this generation to leave the past behind and press forward to the great plans God has in place for their lives.
