Twin Cities Experience Encourages Faith

Christ­mas, gifts, deli­cious food, fam­ily, friends, Face­book and TV are just a few of the numer­ous things that will be com­pet­ing for our atten­tion this Christ­mas break, and it’s a chal­lenge to tune out the uproar of the world to focus on spir­i­tual growth. Some­times, get­ting away to a new envi­ron­ment with a spir­i­tual focus, such as the var­i­ous con­fer­ences offered through Cru, help us pull away from the noise and refo­cus our God-centered pri­or­i­ties while grow­ing rela­tion­ships with oth­ers and bring­ing the gospel to the world.

TCX, also known as Twin Cities Expe­ri­ence, is a 4 day con­fer­ence designed to draw col­lege stu­dents closer to the heart of God. Every Decem­ber, approx­i­mately 2,000 col­lege stu­dents from across the Mid­west gather at the Hilton hotel in down­town Min­neapo­lis to expe­ri­ence God in a new light. Each year, God uses these 4 days to change the lives of every­one who attends.

Through­out the 4 days, there is an abun­dant amount of oppor­tu­ni­ties to inter­act with and respond to The Lord through wor­ship, well-known speak­ers and per­sonal reflec­tion time. UW-Superior stu­dent, Laura Bon­sell, spoke about her expe­ri­ence at TCX “There are tons of dif­fer­ent sem­i­nars and top­ics to learn about that you can pick from. They have great speak­ers and the wor­ship is done by stu­dents from dif­fer­ent campuses.”

Dur­ing the 4 day con­fer­ence, TCX serves the Min­neapo­lis com­mu­nity by deliv­er­ing boxes of food and the gospel to fam­i­lies in need. God uses this well-timed con­fer­ence in the midst of our Christ­mas break to refo­cus us on Christ-like char­ac­ter and a heart for bring­ing the gospel to fam­i­lies, cam­puses and the world. Gabriel Zielke, a UW-Superior stu­dent, stated, “We went in groups with gift pack­ages and many peo­ple we met that after­noon loved receiv­ing the gifts. This gave us an oppor­tu­nity to share Christ with them, and was prob­a­bly my favorite part of the whole con­fer­ence. TCX also shows col­lege stu­dents the oppor­tu­nity of going to the world to spread the word of Jesus.”

Meet with the Lord, explore the claims of Chris­tian­ity and build ever­last­ing friend­ships Decem­ber 28 through Jan­u­ary 1 for an unfor­get­table life chang­ing experience.
