Cedarville, Ohio-More than 1,000 sixth through ninth graders from Ohio and neighboring states are expected to attend Cedarville University’s CedarMania on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 16-17. This year’s theme, “identity.com: Is Jesus in your ‘MySpace’?”, will focus on encouraging students to find their true identity in Jesus Christ, rather than in a virtual or real community of friends, shared interests, or common experiences.

Students will enjoy activities including student-led praise, exciting competitions and crazy games, a campus-wide scavenger hunt, a late-night pizza party, and much more. This high-energy, overnight event will feature Cedarville graduate Kyle Estepp, who is the associate pastor of youth ministries at Southgate Baptist Church in Springfield, Ohio.

“CedarMania is an opportunity to serve junior high youth groups,” said Amanda Gillispie, assistant director of conference and event services at the University. “More than 300 University students will assist as small group leaders, lead games, and interact with the students throughout the night.”
