Upraise exists to provide discipleship, mentorship opportunities and training for personal development.
To assist in equipping people in underdeveloped regions of the world to become disciples of Christ using their gifts to the fullest potential.
Youth Conference in Haiti
In 2018 we launched the Annual Haiti Youth Conference. This event is to bring the young people together for a 3-day youth conference where they will be distanced into a safe environment from the chaos and distractions of everyday life. This will allow them to focus on teachings, workshops, as well as socializing and forming new friendships with others from different churches in the surrounding areas.
Why is there a need for this youth event?
=> There are no youth or "summer camps" offered.
=> These young adults are hungry for solid teaching and mentorship.
=> This is an opportunity for personal development and discipleship.
=> Most teachers and speakers are local Haitian leaders who have dedicated their lives to bring about change in the people of their nation.
=> This is the only multi-denominational event in the area - all local churches are invited to send their young people and young leaders.
Future Goal for Haiti Youth Conference
=> Expand the conference from 80 youth to 150 in 2020
=> Two conferences a year with 150 young people at each
=> One young person's entry is an all-inclusive $65 which covers food and 3 day lodging at the VivaRio Hotel in Haiti.
Upraise is in the initial planning phase of new ministry work in the East Texas area. Pray with us as we seek God's direction in bringing assistance to those transitioning from the prison and jail systems.
