7th February

To me, the 2013 youth congress will go down as one of, if not the, best youth congresses of all time. The preaching was anointed, the music was exceptional, and the classes were on point and relevant. I have no doubt that 2015 will be just as good since we have three of our very own helping to lead the charge.

There was another feature of youth congress two years ago that changed the culture of UTurn Student Ministries here in Groveport, Ohio. That was the launch of P7 Bible studies. Haley Robinson is one of our young ladies entering her senior year of high school. She decided to commit to starting a Bible study in her school.

The story of the man with the red bandana was etched in Peyton’s mind as he felt the tug of God calling him to reach souls. Peyton was overwhelmed with a sense of mission as he went … Read More »

Summer has come and gone, and once again, another school year has begun. Even though during the summer, you pushed far from your mind the dreaded reality of waking up early, sitting through classes, and maneuvering your way through crowded hallways, it has arrived. The 2013-2014 school year is inescapably upon you.

Although those tests, assignments, and late nights are sure to come, allow me to remind you of an assignment greater than all of these. Matthew 28:19 states, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”

The most prominent due date you have is not a brand new one or even one on your latest syllabi. This age-old assignment is still just as vital today as it was when it was first given. You can … Read More »
