Outpour 2023

YOUNG ADULTS CONFERENCE

Saturday March 4, 2023

What is the cost of 1,096 days of not being able to meet together, to go out with friends, worship at church and be in community with each other? The toll of living through three years of COVID has been high. In its wake we have been left with some real struggles such as loneliness, a lack of passion and mental health realities we never thought we’d have to face.

So where do we go from here? How do we get back to the wholeness and richness of life we knew with such abundance?

Outpour (formerly Fluid) has been answering this question for more than a decade. Our desire is to show you that God has so much more for you. When connected to Jesus you are filled up with his love. His power. His grace. So much so that it inevitably pours out from you into your work, your school and your friendships.

John 7:38 says that “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” This is the promise we are believing for this generation. This is the hope we have for you.

 On Saturday March 4th, 2023, join 1500 young adults from across Ontario to explore and be reminded what a life with God looks like.

Nathan Weselake

Lead Pastor, Prairie Alliance Church

Nathan Weselake is popular with conference organisers as a keynote speaker, particularly when more sought-after speakers have cancelled at the last moment. Nathan Weselake can come on short notice. Nathan Weselake is a fantastic consolation prize. He holds a Master's degree from Regent College and has twenty years pastoral experience. Eighteen of those years have been spent leading the Prairie Alliance family of churches in Manitoba and Ontario. His church has an airplane - but he wants you to know he is not that kind of pastor. He and his wife Tamara live with their three teenage sons in Portage, Manitoba. They also have a twenty year old daughter who would be upset if she wasn't included in this bio and who would want you to know she had no input in Nathan's choice of clothing for this event.

Vijay Krishnan

Lead Pastor, The Well

Vijay Krishnan is the Lead Pastor of The Well in Vaughan, Ontario. After studying business at Queen’s University, Vijay worked in the Toronto business community for 10 years doing CPG and Retail marketing. During that time, he helped launch The Well (formerly Upper Room Community Church), and in 2009 transitioned into the Lead Pastor role. Serving in a city marked by continuous growth and affluence, along with religious and ethnic diversity, presents significant challenges and unique opportunities.

The Well is committed to being used by God to authentically represent Jesus Christ through a Deep Faith, and a Wide Embrace. Vijay, his wife Jenn and their three boys are thrilled to be in ministry in the local church.

At Outpour, you’re going to find:

A Christian community that understands where you are in your faith journey and accepts you for you.

It can be easy to look around at other Christians and assume everyone is deep and committed in their faith, but that’s simply not true. You may be excited and on fire for God or you may be wondering if Christianity is actually for you. Outpour has a speaker, a breakout, an artist or a song that will speak to you.

Great speakers, music and artists.

Outpour conference features several keynote speakers, multiple breakout sessions, a top-rated worship time and talented artists throughout the conference. All of this is designed to create an atmosphere where you have the ability to reflect and be open to God’s message for you.

A volunteer team that cares about you.

You have been to an event where the staff clearly have to be there and probably wish they were somewhere else. That’s not the case at Outpour. From the management team organizing the logistics through the people welcoming you at the front door - we’re all volunteers who have one goal: to make your Outpour experience what’s right for you.

Space for reflection

Your faith is personal. It’s yours and it’s part of who you are. At Outpour, there’s space for reflection, both physically and metaphorically. After listening to a compelling speaker, you may need quiet time where you can reflect on your own so we’ve created spaces where you can go and pray or spend time in your own thoughts away from the crowd.

Why decide to attend the Outpour Conference?

When was the last time you were around 1,500 people your age all with a desire to understand their faith at a deeper level? If you’re lucky, you may have a handful of friends you feel comfortable with to speak about your beliefs and if you’re really lucky, you have a great college and careers group you’re a part of.

That’s what makes Outpour so special. Over a thousand people your age are at different places on their faith journey with one goal in mind: to have an encounter with God, get clarity and come away with something deeper for their life.
