No, you didn’t come to the wrong place. May we introduce you to the all-new and improved online headquarters for the Rebelution.

Hours and hours of work have been put into this project over the past few months. We have been looking forward to the day when we could finally show it to all of you. We decided to launch the new site today, almost exactly a year since The Rebelution blog officially began, in celebration of our one-year anniversary.

It’s been an incredible ride.

God’s Sovereign Plan
The Rebelution began as two young men’s attempt to discipline themselves to think and to write. We wanted to have a blog that went beyond the normal journaling and chatter of typical teen blogs, and hopefully, to network with some like-minded young men and women while we were at it.

Little did we know that God would take and turn it into something so much bigger than we are. We’re so blessed to be part of what God is doing in our generation.

As you may have noticed, things are looking quite different around here. Not only has the blog gone through a redesign, but it’s switched from Blogger to WordPress. Plus, the blog has three new friends. In this first post on the newly-designed blog, we’d like to introduce you to each of them:

blog_header

The blog may have a new suit of clothes and a new address, but it’s still the same old blog. This is where everything started and where it continues to happen. You’ll find our same old sidebar on your right, full of original articles, cultural commentary, and special news coverage, with new posts added several times a week.

Be sure to update your links, feeds, and subscriptions. The RSS feed is on the sidebar in The Rebelution Rundown. The new address is: www.therebelution.com/blog

conference_header

The Conference Section of the site is devoted to the upcoming Rebelution Tour 2007. We’re looking forward to meeting many of you and to share our hearts with many hundreds of like-minded teens and parents around the country.

The Conference Section includes the tour schedule, conference message and session topics, speaker bios, and frequently asked questions. As the Tour draws closer we’ll be adding more features, like movies, video, and audio, as well as downloadable publicity materials and secure online registration.

forum_header

We’re really excited about the all-new discussion forums. They have been specifically designed as a place for young people who share the vision of the Rebelution to network and interact.

This is not your typical message board with celebrity gossip, heated (and unproductive) arguments, and spam all mixed together. Instead this is meeting place for mature Christian teens to engage in intelligent and meaningful conversation. All that to say, what are you waiting for? Go join the discussion!

resources_header

The brand-new Resources Section is a compilation of a great articles from the some of the best Christian authors of our day. It’s all out there, but now it’s all together in a single place.

Even better, it’s going to constantly grow as readers submit suggestions and as it expands to include audio and video resources as well. We know you’ll be blessed.

Some Closing Thoughts
So go and explore. There’s a lot to see. Browse the Resource section. Join the discussion in the Forums. Invite your friends to join you. And give us feedback, we’d love to hear what you think.

Most importantly, continue to fight beside us in the daily battle against the low expectations of this world and to return to God’s standard for the teen years. The blog, the conference, the forums, and the resource section were all created to equip us in this fight. By God’s grace and for His glory, let the Rebelution continue.

I’m so excited for you guys Alex and Brett! Keep up the good work, keep advancing his kingdom, and keep doing hard things.

His Kingdom Come!

Marshall
