Join All for God this July 27-29, 2018 at the University of San Diego, and encounter the abundant love of  Jesus Christ. We live in a world where there are voices shouting at us from all sides, trying to tell us who we are and who we aren’t, who we should be and who we shouldn’t be. Sometimes it can be easy to lose our identity. But amidst all the noise is our loving Father, who wants to REVEAL Himself to us and speak truth about who we are, and whose we are. God’s love is deeper and His plan for our lives is greater than anything the world has to offer – and we want you to experience it! Your parish group will meet teens from all over California and the western United States and you will draw closer to each other as a community. Come and be a part of an amazing and joy-filled weekend as you encounter the Limitless and abundant love of Jesus Christ! With over 5,000 teens, young adults, and leaders the energy and excitement make this an event you do not want to miss.

DJ Bernal (G)

Daniel Bernal Jr. (DJ) knew the importance of his Catholic faith as a child, but life experiences left a deep void in his heart. A Steubenville conference in 2008 helped DJ realize his need for an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Aligning perfectly with Proverbs 19:21, many were the plans in DJ’s heart, but it was the Lord’s purpose that prevailed. Since 2008, DJ has had the great privilege to minister to middle/high school students, young adults, and adult groups. DJ teaches on the necessity of obtaining a real relationship with Jesus Christ (Romans 8:38-39), and the need to have healthy, lasting relationships with others through the Theology of the Body, among other topics. DJ resides in San Antonio, TX.
