Undignified Tour has lead at college campuses, churches, and retreats all over the world for one purpose: to help this generation worship God. They are imperfect worshippers brought together by their common desire to love God through worship. Their passion is to see campuses and local churches express their hearts to God freely and unashamed and to give others an opportunity to do the same.
The name “Undignified” comes from their desire to see everyone come to worship God with an unashamed heart and attitude. Check out some of their videos on their YouTube channel.
Global CommunityMeet and make new friends from over 50 nations through our social events
TOUR WASHINGTON, D.C.
Spend the afternoons of the 29th and 31st touring historic Washington, D.C. with new and old friends. See all the monuments on the National Mall or check out one of the many museums, such as the Air & Space Museum.
Join us for the first Vision Conference Community Night on the 29th. This special event will give you the chance to meet and have fun with other students from around the world. Show off your karaoke skills, play group games, or sit down with a new friend for coffee. There will be something for everyone at Community Night.
NEW YEAR’S EVE TALENT SHOW & PARTY
Celebrate the New Year with people from over 60 different countries the Vision Conference way! You’ll experience an international Talent Show leading up to midnight, followed by a dance party highlighting music from around the world.
Spiritual ConversationsExplore and learn about God, the Bible, and life's big questions in an open environment
Much of the conference will be spent in “Tracks”: smaller groups that will help you connect more with other students from your cultural background. This is a great place to have spiritual conversations and think more deeply about questions of life and faith. These tracks will meet once or twice daily for fun, learning, and community. In the midst of a big conference, they are a great way to interact with others one-on-one. Check our Tracks page to learn more specifics about each track!
My favorite part about the conference is that diversity is appreciated and valued at a level I had never experienced before. As an international student, I used to think cultural differences were barriers. But at Vision they are treasured and are being protected and advocated.Iris Wang, student attendee
