I will put my spirit in you and you will live

Ezekiel 37:14

Over the course of the last few years, the world has weighed us down, overwhelmed many of us, and left us feeling lifeless and hopeless. Yet, scripture promises again and again that God is able to breath new life into us so that we can have hope, have a purpose, and be a light to the world around us as we put our trust in Him.

We desire that this conference will be a fresh reminder that the power of the Holy Spirit breathes new life in us and restores our hope and purpose. We invite you to this two-day, overnight retreat that will bring a fresh renewal of mind and soul as we embrace God's spirit in us so that we can be a light to the world around us.

FEBRUARY 10-11, 2023

Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center // Columbus, OH

What an absolutely amazing conference. The power of God's spirit was present and moved in mighty ways over the course of our weekend together.

We pray that as you go back to your campus and communities that you are actively praying for B.O.B. everyday: 

a BURDEN for the lost, OPPORTUNITY to witness, and BOLDNESS to proclaim Christ.)

Grant came into college at BGSU looking for a Bible-based, missional church. As soon as he arrived, he saw signs of H2O Church everywhere he looked. He checked it out the first Sunday and fell in love with it! 

Grant pastors the H2O Church at the University of Cincinnati. He lives with his wife Cassi, daughter Anya, and future son (May 2023!). Grant enjoys being with people, playing and watching sports, and laughing. He has a very distinct and recognizable laugh that's been known to scare people and even make babies cry.

Saturday Morning

Mark Brewer


Coming into college as a Christian, Mark knew he needed to find a community right away. Some brave people at H2O didn’t allow his red mohawk to intimidate them and they invited him to fill out a survey.  He quickly fell in love with the community, the opportunities to serve, and all of the people who were serious about following Christ in college.

Mark lives with his wife Stephanie and their two children in Kent, Ohio. They moved there in 2008 as part of a church plant team. He works part-time with H2O Kent while working full time as an intervention specialist at a local high school. He likes running, shackets, and homemade pickles.
