The Youth Evangelism Congress is an event unlike any other.
In 2018, 360+ senior youth & young adults ages 16-35 in the Lake Union Conference gathered together with pastors, youth directors, ministerial directors, conference presidents, and Union Administrators to be empowered and resourced for evangelism back in their local churches and communities. As a result, we had young adult leaders using up to $160,000 dollars from a joint evangelism fund from LUC, local Conference & the local churches to launch new evangelism projects. Their goals were all the same: to bring the gospel to their local church community.
Coming in 2020, senior youth and young adults will meet again in Shipshewana, IN, for congress. On February 15-17, 2020 the Lake Union Conference will be having another Youth Evangelism Congress for those willing to be COURAGEOUS to spread the gospel with God's power (Joshua 1:9). The congress will once again be filled with pastors, youth directors, ministerial directors, conference presidents, and Union Administrators who share our belief that to nurture the church, we need to invest in it and its senior youth & young adult leaders.
“With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world!” (Ellen White, Education, pg. 271)
