The Seeds of Faith Christian Academy's senior class went to the Association of Christian School International's (ACSI) World Concerns Conference from Nov. 18-20 in Virginia.
More than 700 students from the northeastern United States attended.
The message of this high school leadership event was that there is a lot of brokenness in the world, even in our own country, but there is hope found in the message of the Gospel and Jesus Christ.
During the conference, there were various speakers who addressed many of the issues common in today's society including the homeless, abortion, disabilities, etc., and how we can respond to it.
Dr. Barry Black, chaplain to the United States Senate, also met and spoke with the students on the steps of the Capitol building.
He shared his life story with the kids, including how, with God's help, he came from a poor childhood in the inner city of Baltimore to the halls of Congress.
On Monday, between speakers, the senior class was allowed to tour around Washington, D.C., which included going through one of the various Smithsonian museums.
Since then, the Seeds of Faith seniors have been sharing the messages from the conference with their friends and the rest of the school.
