On Wednesday, Oct. 18, Jerusalem-based worship band Miqedem will lead students in worship before Wayne Hilsden, the pastor of King of Kings Congregation in Jerusalem, challenges the crowd to inspire change in a conflicting world.

Chris Hodges, pastor of the Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Ala., which is the largest church in America, will encourage students with a message of hope in the midst of hardship on Friday, Oct. 20.
