LIFT TOUR 2018 THEME
In life, we often find ourselves in situations where we don’t know what to do. The pressure can be so overwhelming that it affects our ability to experience God in a real and relevant way. Pressure will either make us bitter or it will make us better. In the words of General George S. Patton, “Pressure makes diamonds.” A diamond is composed of carbon, which under extreme amounts of pressure and heat, and over time, becomes a very hard and durable crystal. When it comes to dealing with the pressures of life, we must be willing to submit to a process that ultimately reveals God’s powerful promise. The promise is that no matter what happens in our lives, God will never leave us nor forsake us. This year at the LIFT Tour 2018, we will take an in-depth look at the life of Joseph and how he endured the process of being pressed but not CRUSHED as he went from the “Pit” to the “Palace”.
Are meals included at LIFT?
No. Meals are not included in your registration. For certain cities, we will have partners that offer box lunches for purchase on Saturday. In those cities, all group leaders will receive information by email when group lunches for order are available.
Are there special hotel options for Lift Tour cities?
Yes, for some cities we have posted a hotel with a discounted rate for Lift Tour groups. You will need to contact and book the hotel rooms directly through the hotel. All payment and booking questions will go through the hotel as well. Check the website of the LIFT city that you are interested in to see if we have a group hotel option posted!

We typically look at dates & cities 12-18 months in advance. If you are interested in hosting the LIFT Tour, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
