Re Effect

January 8 – 10, 2016 | Atlanta, GA                                       

Re Effect is a triangle, one part bi-annual event, one part leadership development and the base is a focus on mission at the corps level. The goal of Re Effect is to equip Salvationists for mission through a renewed love for others, a reinvigorated commitment to service and a rekindled passion for discipling and training future leaders of The Salvation Army. At this event it is our goal to provide resources on leadership, new experiences in worship and opportunities for mission. The Re Effect is a reminder to stay true to our calling as a movement, we need to continue to be actively engaged with the poor in our communities and we want to live as a church without walls.
We are looking for the dreamers, the visionaries, and those that are ready to do bold things in the name of Jesus. Join the movement.

amenanamedebut book release, Breaking Old Rhythms: Answering the Call of a Creative God, explores how experiences such as deejaying, learning to dance, having a broken heart and practicing the rules of improv can teach us about our life’s rhythm and how we can better tune our ears and lives to the rhythm of God.
The author of spoken-word CD Live at Java Monkey, Amena has performed and spoken at events across the nation such as The RightNow Conference, Creativity World Forum, Catalyst Conference, Chick-fil-A Leadercast, as well as touring with Gungor.
As part of a generation that is searching for the real and the genuine in an age of constant carbon copy, Amena is both regal and dramatic in her creative interpretation on the stage, and in her candid and expressive conversation one on one. This nonconformist lends her voice to finding inspiration, truth and purpose and encourages those she encounters to do the same.
