TURN IT UP! (NCYC 2011 themes)

The theme of NCYC is "Turn it Up"!

The theme focuses on the opportunity for young adults to turn up their faith, to engage with Jesus at a deeper level and to share their faith more passionately with others.

Each day of convention different aspects of this theme will be explored. Some of the music at NCYC will relate specifically to these themes.

If you are a songwriter - or think you could be - why not take one or more of these themes as inspiration, write some music for NCYC '11 and submit it here!
