NCYC 2022: Walking on Water

NCYC 2022

The NCYC 2022 theme was Walking on Water, inspired by the story of Jesus calling Peter to come out onto the water despite being in the eye of a storm (Matt 14:29). Teens have experienced a feeling of sinking causing a weakening of faith throughout the past few years.

NCYC 2022 was an invitation to step out in faith and trust our Lord.
