Warrior Leadership Summit Draws Hundreds of Native American Young People

Warrior Leadership Summit 2014Hundreds of Native American young people gathered earlier this month from across North America to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Every summer, Native young people, ages 15-35, from tribes all across the United States and Canada participate in the Warrior Leadership Summit, a Native American Youth Discipleship Conference that is part of the On Eagles' Wings (OEW) Native American outreach of Ron Hutchcraft Ministries.

During the five-day leadership conference, participants worship, learn, have fun, and connect with each other. More importantly, the young people are equipped and empowered to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus.

This year, more than one out of four who attended gave their hearts to Christ and twice as many chose to be baptized than ever before.

“For so many young people who have lived in a paralyzing darkness, Light has come ‘and the darkness could not overcome it,’” noted OEW Founder Ron Hutchcraft, citing John 1:5.

Following the conclusion of the June 28-July 3 conference, a team of 54 young OEW warriors, representing 33 tribes, officially headed out for reservations in a five-state area as part of the annual “Summer of Hope.”

Every summer, an OEW team travels across the United States and Canada holding events as part of the “Summer of Hope.” For more than 20 years, OEW teams have gone out to share their personal hope stories with other Native young people. They also work to encourage and equip local partners that are already serving in an area.

More than a ministry, On Eagles' Wings is a movement of Native young people who want to bring hope to their reservations through Jesus Christ.
