About The Conference

We are the Young Adult Ministry of Red Rocks Church.

And this conference is for YOU.

The 2019 RED Conference will be a 3-night event where young adults from all over the Denver area will make statements of faith believing that God will move in their lives. What is it you’re believing for God to do in your life? Heal you, call you, restore you? Come with your ‘I BELIEVE _______.’ statements as we sit with one another and fight in faith for what God can do. We couldn’t be more excited and expectant for what is about to transpire in your life.


Special Guests

We have the opportunity to hear from some of the most gifted and passionate voices on the planet, both from Red Rocks Church and from other ministries all over! 

Josh Kimes

American dad, Australian mom, Josh was somehow born in China but grew up in Sydney, Australia.  At age 14, Josh had a crush and followed her to a summer camp where he had his first encounter with Jesus. From there, he was sold out!  Originally planning on becoming a police officer, Josh changed his course and enrolled in Hillsong Bible College. From here, Josh realized that he wanted to spend his life helping people find a sense of belonging.  Josh and his wife have been pastors at Hillsong Church for 12 years now! Recently, Josh, his wife, and their daughter moved to start Hillsong Boston- which takes place in Boston’s largest nightclub, Royale.



Manny Arango

At age 13, Manny preached his first sermon. It was at a juvenile detention center in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Since then, Manny has taught in England, Grenada, and even Hawaii.  In 2010, Manny graduated from Gordon College with a degree in Biblical and Theological Studies. Shortly after, he was ordained at Jubliee Christian Church.  Manny is currently the Youth Pastor at World Overcomers Christian Church in Durham, led by Pastor Andy Thompson. Manny spends his free time with his wife Tia, watching Netflix.



Shawn Johnson

Shawn Johnson serves as Lead Pastor of Red Rocks Church. He is passionate about seeing the people of Denver transformed by the Word of God and making heaven more crowded! Shawn is the author of Transit, a book dedicated to taking people closer to God. In it he shares his personal journey in growing closer to God, uncovers disciplines that were critical to that journey, and invites each of us to ignite an authentic relationship with God. He and his wife Jill have three active sons—Ethan, Austin, and Ashton—so when they’re not at church, they’re usually at a sports game!



Musical Guests

Red Rocks Worship exists to cultivate communities that pursue the presence of God by giving glory to Jesus creatively through music.

Red Rocks Worship

Red Rocks Worship is the worship ministry of Colorado-based Red Rocks Church. Founded in 2005, Red Rocks Church is one of the fastest-growing churches in America with seven campuses and nearly 15,000 total attendees weekly in addition to the 4,000 who watch services online. Formed as an extension of the church, Red Rocks Worship is comprised of worship leaders and songwriters who have a passion to bring their love of Jesus to people through music. The heartbeat behind their music is to cultivate communities of believers that pursue God’s presence while creating a real and authentic environment for people to respond in worship.
