Hidden truths are all around us. Some, we learn as we grow up, others we discover in unlikely places and some, we are taught by unlikely people. Two thousand years ago, Jesus taught the people of Judea through unlikely stories called Parables.

Although many stories contain hidden truths, Jesus’ parables were like no other. It left people in awe, astonishment, perplexity and some in anger. This response would later shape the destiny of the hearers and still does till today.

At the ‘Hidden Truths’ Conference, you will:

  • Have the chance to look closer into four of Jesus’s parables like the hearers of old

  • Hear the meaning of parables and why he used them to teach

  • Rediscover the Hidden Truths in his parables and how it benefits you today

  • Above all, you get a chance to decide how you would like to respond to his stories

God has secured these hidden truths for you in his scriptures for millennia past.

Come & join over 100+ university students from around the UAE as we spend one whole weekend meeting new friends, enjoying late night chats, having tons of fun and answering all your questions about Jesus’ parables and the hidden truths they contain.

Five Hundred years ago in Europe, a group of Christians made a discovery or rather still, a rediscovery that will change the history of the Church forever. Post tenebras lux (After darkness, Light) – was how they described it. The darkness was an eclipse and the dawn, a great rediscovery.

Although many rediscoveries exist in the scriptures, this one was nothing like any other - this was the greatest of all rediscoveries. And would later lead to what is now known as the Reformation.

These group of people spent the rest of their lives defending and proclaiming this discovery until their death. So;

  • What was rediscovered and why is it a big deal?
  • Why did the reformation happen? Was it necessary?
  • It happened 500 years ago, why is it relevant to me today?

Come & join over 100+ university students from around the UAE as we spend one whole weekend meeting new friends, enjoying late night chats, having tons of fun and answering all your questions about the Reformation.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Hebrews 4: 12


The Bible is the word of God - it is breathed out by God and ever alive!

Although it was written many centuries ago, it is powerful today to give life and faith. It is authoritative in every issue of life and able to teach, correct, train and equip the reader in righteousness and good works!

  • How can God's word be both old and ever relevant at the same time?
  • Why is it important for one to know what the bible says?
  • How is one meant to rightly study and understand the word of God?

Come & join over 100+ university students from around the UAE as we spend one whole weekend meeting new friends, enjoying late night chats, having tons of fun and learning how the Bible is the word of God!


Conference Speaker    Dr. Richard Chin  is married to Jeanette and is the father of four children. He currently serves as the chaplain at University of Wollongong where he teaches the Bible.

FOCUS Spring Conference 2016

"After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"

Revelation 7:9-10


According to the Bible, no one seeks God, no one worships Him, all of humanity has turned away to worship created things rather than the Creator God.
But the Bible also say that there will come a day when people of every tribe, tongue and nations will stand before the one true God and truly worship
Him alone.
How can this be?
What has God done to make this happen?
How does this involve you?

And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
— Matthew 24:14

Everything on the earth has a beginning and an end. We know this to be true just by looking at the world around us. 

Christians believe that there will come a time when everything in this world will come to an end, and Jesus Christ will come to judge all peoples from all times. 

Is the end just fictitious or something to be reckoned with?

How do we make sense of this? 

If it is for real, how can we be ready for it? 

If there is ever a time for university students to be thinking about "The End", now is that time! 
Come join university students from all over the UAE as we spend a weekend thinking through this topic.


Cost: 550 AED (490 AED if you register before 20th March 2015)

-Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."-

Matthew 16:24

Everyone follows someone or something, whether ourselves, our parents, our friends, our dreams or ideals -everybody is a follower!

But following requires trust, and very few are willing to question whether the things they follow really worthy of trust.

Jesus calls people to follow Him, but can he really be trusted?

Why not spending a weekend finding out why Jesus is worthy of following and what it really means to follow Him?
