Description: 

The Student Christian Movement of the United States of America (SCM-USA), founded in solidarity with the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF), is a student-led, grassroots organization, rooted in Christ, that actively seeks justice and peace, speaks truth to power, and works to overcome oppression in communities on local, national, and global levels by empowering students and young people to claim their voice, exercise leadership skills, engage in innovative theological reflection, and build transformational networks of relationship in the Church and the wider world. The purpose of this Launch is to restart and organize the Student Christian Movement in the United States of America. Therefore the SCM-USA is convening this conference for the following reasons:

  • Develop and empower student leadership (organize national board and regional representatives, and approve by-laws)
  • Stand-up against oppression and seek justice through both words and deeds.
  • Create a completely inclusive space for students to claim their Christian identity (tolerant of all diverse positions, except those that are intolerant of diversity). And also remain open to those students who abide by these values and wish to be in this community, but do not name themselves explicitly as Christian.
  • Dialogue, listen, and critically analyze the world from a Christian perspective
  • Lift up the prophetic voices of students, speak truth to power, engage the tension between orthodoxy and prophecy
  • Perform innovative theological reflection and production
  • Prayer, Spiritual Reflection, Worship (reflecting ecumenical variety)
  • Work from a foundation in Scripture, in a container of grassroots-based community for support and accountability.
  • Communicate with, and open our hearts to those of other faiths, and how our efforts for God’s work may be complementary.
  • Pursue all this work in such a way that our efforts can be sustained, with an emphasis on self-care and pastoral care of one another.

Description: 

MaleSurvivor Weekends of Recovery are open to any man, 18 or older, who has been sexually victimized as a child and/or as an adult. We have selected a very special place to host this weekend experience, the Center for New Beginnings, in Dahlonega, GA, about 2 hours north of Atlanta. The Center for New Beginnings is located in one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots in the nation - the unspoiled North Georgia mountains. The splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains - Cedar Mountain, in particular, to the west and the Horseshoe Appalachians to the north - provides a year-round backdrop for respite and renewal, and should be especially beautiful in the spring.
