2018 IAHE Convention {1 Timothy 4:12}

Come and meet other homeschooled teens from all over the state! Be prepared for a high-energy, fun, and challenging convention that meets you where you are. Teens ages 13-18 are eligible to attend.

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.  

I Timothy 4:12

CREW 4:12 participants will engage in a three-pronged convention track that is specifically tailored to their age group, interests, and needsTeens will be challenged to think deeply, serve others, and make new friends through workshops, service, and team-building activities. CREW 4:12 is a full two-day program that includes a component of serving in the convention hall. As such, students will be given a convention shirt to wear on both days and will serve as ambassadors as they represent the IAHE to convention guests & exhibitors.

  • WORKSHOPS These exclusive workshops are tailored just for CREW 4:12 and will challenge, motivate, and encourage the young adults in attendance.
  • ACTIVITIES If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, your teens will love our activities which will get their blood pumping and encourage creative thinking. Each team will work and learn together throughout the convention, and the activities time will provide a fun break as well as help them build teamwork, develop leadership skills, and create camaraderie among the team members.
  • SERVICE JOBS The teen staff can look forward to a great time, but it isn’t just fun and games. They will also have a chance to learn about leadership and responsibility first-hand as they confront real challenges and help fill essential staff roles that are vital to the success of the Convention.
