Strand groups are the heart of Engage.
Engage is first and foremost a training conference. You’ll be part of a strand group where you will learn a model that will help you understand and teach the Bible for years to come. You'll meet once to twice per day in your strand groups to work on writing a Bible study or talk, which you'll present to your strand group at the end of the conference.
The Engage material is staged over five years. Each year aligns with the strands taught at the AFES National Training Event (NTE) and the NextGen training conference. Any strands you have completed at these conferences will be recognised at Engage.
You can take what you learn at Engage and apply it directly to your Christian ministry context - whether that's with kids, youth or adults.
