                            Zach Williams Concert
                            Zach was a late bloomer as songwriters go and didn’t perform his first song publicly till near the end
                            of college. That was in 2004 and the music and Zach have been growing ever since. He stumbled upon
                            a sound that is both soulful and penetrating and his music represents the communities he has had the
                            privilege to pass through, experience, and the ones he is still holding on to. The band’s Americana folk
    sound drifts towards all-out rock’ n’ roll at moments.

    Living into the Story of Education in America
    GrEG vEltmAn
    As citizens and future stakeholders in American education, we are called to be engaged in the work of teaching the next
    generation and stewarding society. Whatever realm, we all need to make important decisions about the education of ourselves,
    our families, and our neighbors. Using the recent film, Waiting for Superman, we will look at some of the most pressing questions
    confronting American society in regard to education.

                            Colonizing the Cosmos is an indie-folk band from Pittsburgh. The band made its debut in early 2010
                            with its album, The First Frontier. Colonizing the Cosmos has a creative approach to restoring the art and
                            community of live performance by electing unlikely venues, such as art museums, mountaintop city parks,
                            and partnerships with organizations.

 Poverty

 In his highly graphical presentation, “The Church Will End Extreme
 Poverty,” Dr. Scott Todd, a skeptic turned advocate, gives clear and
 compelling evidence about why extreme poverty is on its way to
 the history books. Join him and find out how you can join a unified
 global Church in the “true fast” and begin making an impact today.
 Face up to this unsung reality: the poor will NOT always be with you.
 Ending extreme global poverty is not only possible, it’s probable. In
 our lifetime. Be a part of the possible.

BOOKS                                     For most of Jubilee’s history, HEARTS & MINDS of Dallastown, Pennsylvania has been
                                          the conference bookstore. Emerging from Byron and Beth Borger’s involvement with the
                                          earliest Jubilee conferences, HEARTS & MINDS has been a local, independent bookstore
                                          which seeks to illustrate the thinking and perspective of Jubilee. The Jubilee conference
                                          and the book display affirm that Christ is Lord of every zone of life, and therefore His
                                          people must be continuously learning how best to serve Him in their various vocations,
                                          callings, classes and careers.

                                          Because of their association with the CCO and the Jubilee conference, and because
                                          of their wide knowledge of books, resources and ideas that can help us live out the
