February 3-5, 2023 at the Manheim Junction Center
Zeteo is an event hosted by Salt ‘n Light Youth Ministries. Check out the description from their website:
It started with a word. One breath and the word spoke worlds into motion. The story began. The author and perfecter of faith designed intention between lines, souls within dust, possibiltiies amidst heartbeats. He devised characters to search among the sentences, some choosing to follow the steady strokes of his pen, others filling pages with their own inked promises and regrets. And so the chapters shift, the conflict spins, the plot thickens. Yet with every twist and turn; every broken word; every mended heart; the Storymaker writes, the Storymaker waits. He waits for every character to return to him—to step into his workspace, sit at his desk, and listen. His workspace is not for the faint of heart: it is intricate, intense, and intimate. And yet each person who visits finds themselves drawn closer into the kinds of stories he writes-the wonderful kind, the adventurous kind. Stories full of much more than we could ever ask or imagine.
At Zeteo 2023, we invite you to step over the threshold, blow the dust off the cover, and reimagine your story alongside the maker of every story ever told.
