impact 2019 - A Christian ROTC Conference

The weekend of March 15-17 ROTC Cadets and Midshipmen from numerous college campuses, along with some active duty and retired military, will gather at Camp Keystone near Starke, Florida for The Navigators ROTC spring conference.

This conference will challenge and deepen both your understanding of the gospel and how to live a life marked by the good news of Jesus Christ. Through worship, a speaker with a deep understanding of Scripture, and challenging workshops, you will learn more about how to grow in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

The conference theme is “Laboring and Leading in God’s Kingdom”. Our special keynote speaker, Chaplain (Col) Dave Bowlus, will share messages focusing on the gospel and how knowing God transforms our view of ourselves, the world around us, and how the Lord wants to work in and through us as military leaders.

Hosted by Navigators’ ROTC Ministry in partnership with
Officers’ Christian Fellowship (OCF) and Cru Valor ROTC Ministry
