The Greatest Opportunity on Earth

The second day of North American Youth congress kicked off with a jump start session led by Lj Harry followed by split sessions with Chantry Dean(Teen), Matthew Johnson(Hyphen), Chadwick Craft (Youth Workers), and Aaron Soto (Young Ministers).

Following the split sessions, Bro. Tom Ellis preached from the well-known passage in Mark 11:15-17, where scripture records Jesus’ frustration with those treating the temple as a marketplace.

They spread out and burned through the ancient civilized world like a fire spreads through dry brush in a desert. Their passion ignited the passion within others, and eventually their passion led to the passion that is within your heart as you sit and read this article.
