We’re less than a week away from the launch of our Conference-wide Youth Week of Spiritual Emphasis which will proceed for a full week (April 10th to 17th). This initiative is provided for all youth and young adults of all ages (13-35+) from the churches and public campuses of Ontario. Additionally, parents, members, and pastors are equally invited to attend in support.
Each of the 8 services will be offered regionally, this way we could enjoy the gifts and creativity God has blessed our young people with. The keynote speaker will be Pastor Damian Chandler, a former member of Apple Creek Adventist Church who is currently serving as senior pastor of the Capital City Adventist Church, Sacramento, CA.
The intent of this initiative is for youth and young adults to have a transformative experience by encountering Christ and deepening their relationship with Him. This is the reason why it’s themed: “Renew: Celebrating Transformation.”
For such an experience, please see the following details:
- Broadcast: Each service will be broadcast on Adventist Youth Ontario YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/adventistyouthontario);
- Watch Party: Services will also be shown on Zoom for live interaction through fellowship, testimonials, and prayer. To use this option, see the following Zoom login: https://zoom.us/j/95232163371. Watch Party will begin 30 mins before and conclude 30 mins after each service;
- Appeals: When the Pastor makes a call for decisions, an online form/card will be provided in the comments section on whichever platform you use;
- #RenewChallenge: These challenges will be highlighted towards the end of various services to make practical the Pastor’s sermons;
- Outreach: Be sure to invite your friends, family and colleagues in your circle of influence to the entire week. Use flyer attached or promo https://youtu.be/Jf7gVS87fcQ;
