"Best of FOCUS" in Dallas 2014

In January 2014, FOCUS will present an experience unlike anything we have ever hosted. SLS – which stands for Student Leadership Summit – will bring 2,500 of our most committed student missionaries together for five days of innovative training in the New Evangelization. This dynamic event will be even more interactive, collaborative and hands-on than our 2012 summit. Students are going to roll up their sleeves and learn how to practically apply the best practices that we teach within our organization.

SLS will showcase the “Best of FOCUS” in terms of top-rated speakers and entertainers. Some of the best speakers will be present to teach and inspire the students in attendance. One of the really exciting elements is that after certain presentations, the students themselves will be the ones who will then present to their peers. This will help engrain the presented teachings and give student missionaries the opportunity to better internalize the material and vocalize it in their own unique way.

Christine Westerlin, the Director of Events for FOCUS, says, “I am thrilled about this event, because it showcases FOCUS as top of the game in training on the New Evangelization. Not only will students receive informative and inspirational talks from high-caliber Catholic speakers, but they will also put this training into practice at this very event. It’s an event like none other.”

Our top-rated speakers and entertainers include:

  • Patrick Lencioni – The Table Group
  • Dr. Ted Sri – The Augustine Institute
  • Sister Mary Gabriel – Sisters of Life
  • Matt Maher – Award-Winning Music Artist
  • Chris Stefanick – Speaker and Author
  • Helen Alvaré – George Mason University
  • Curtis Martin – President and Founder of FOCUS

The core of how FOCUS understands its mission comes from 2 Tim 2:2, where Paul tells Timothy that “what you have heard from me before many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” It’s teaching teachers to teach. This is precisely the essence of SLS, and we are excited to invest deeply in the students who will attend. Please join us in praying that the Lord of the harvest may indeed send laborers into His field. (cf. Mt 10:38)
