Our theme is Justice

In the midst of a broken and fallen world, we may often find ourselves disoriented or disheartened. Often, it
can be overwhelming for us to see the injustices and systems of oppression around us. As a result, we sometimes
turn a blind eye to the brokenness around us because it is easier to do so. Instead, let’s look to God and
learn to live out His godly justice in our lives in the brokenness. Let’s respond to his call to be people of justice, to
be people who seek His face in their everyday lives.

This year at Theophilus, we will center ourselves on the theme of justice as we:

prayerfully shed light on the tensions and fractures of our culture

look towards the Gospel for an active, prophetic way of peace

We believe it is in and through the life of Jesus that we engage the areas of race, gender, and class. We are called to make
known the liberating Good News for all people, in all places, at all times. God’s heart for justice is revealed
from the first pages of Scripture to the last, as He relentlessly presses towards the redemption of the marginalized
and the suffering. As we choose the way of Jesus, let us live boldly into the beloved community, where the image
of God is recognized in each human being from every nation, tribe, people, and language. (Revelations 7:9).

May we, Theophilus, walk as a people called to act justly and to love mercy and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).

Meet our Speakers

Every year at Theophilus, we seek out speakers who love Jesus and have a heart for our youth. This year, we will have a main speaker and a variety of speakers for our breakout sessions that go on throughout the weekend. Stay tuned for more information soon!


Theophilus’s origin is the Greek word Θεόφιλος from θεός (God) and φιλία (love or affection) can be translated as “Love of God” or “Friend of God”,

Worship at Theophilus

Worship is a full response to who God is; we do not worship with only singing, but we show God praise through art, prayer, and music. During each of our sessions, we devote an intimate time to worshipping the Lord and engaging with the Holy Spirit. With wonderful worship leaders, art stations, and many prayer opportunities, worship at Theophilus will not be easy to forget.
