HBU Embark

July 17 – 21, 2023

HBU Embark strives to equip college-bound students to defend their faith and grow in their personal, spiritual, and social lives. The program is open to all college-bound students, regardless of institution.

Why Attend Embark?

College freshmen today have their beliefs tested more intensely than ever before. Many do not remain faithful. The Bible teaches that Christians will face many trials and should be able to give reasons for the faith they profess. Join us and acquire the tools to build Christian community on your campus and answer objections to your faith – while exploring the exciting city of Houston.
