Focus+ is a special limited-registration add-on event for students who want to dive into a specially selected text. This year the teaching will present an overview of the book of Revelation. Focus+ is kept purposefully small; only 25 spots are available, so don't delay in registering if you'd like to attend.

This year Focus+ will take place between the two main Focus weeks. It will start at 4pm on Friday, May 11th and will conclude at 11am on Sunday, May 13th. Cost is $75.


When you register, you will receive an email containing important information about Focus 2018. If you do not receive this email, please email as soon as possible so we can get it to you!
