North American Youth Congress, Thursday Night

Posted by Sarah Hudspeth in 2015, Youth Congress. No Comments

6th August

The second night of NAYC kicked off with great excitement and worship from Christian Life College in California. A new category of the North American Talent Search was judged of those presenting a variety of worship arts. These included a skit, painting, singing, spoken word, a guitar solo, and ending the talent search was a violin solo. Only one talent wins the contest, but it is refreshing to know how diverse our worship can be, and how our unique talents testify of the special design involved in all of our lives!

As we assembled the first night, anticipation was based on hope. All were believing God

The following is an adaption of a speech given by Hannah Loyd to her eighth grade class.

Why do you wear skirts all the time? Aren’t your legs cold? How long is your hair? I have been asked these questions—plus many more—countless times over the years.

As many of you may know, I am of the Pentecostal religious denomination. Although there may be just a few Pentecostals in this school and town, according to the United Pentecostal Church International website (UPCI.org), there are over three million United Pentecostal Church members like me worldwide and over 279 million Pentecostals in various denominations. … Read More »

Artist: Cortt Chavis

Album: Help Me!

If you are familiar with Apostolic music, you have probably been exposed to the singing ministry of Cortt Chavis. This album is a must-buy. It has a great variety of music. “Help Me” is a sobering song that reminds us of our purpose on this earth, while “Alone” is a fun upbeat song about trusting in God’s greatness. The anointing that is felt when Cortt Chavis sings live is also felt on this studio released CD. You will not be disappointed. “Help Me!” can be purchased at www.pentecostalpublishing.com.
