This past Wednesday evening was awesome! Our high school youth group (Oasis) joined together with 3 other high school ministries in the area for a night of worship and prayer. We called the event Go! based on the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20. Our goal in doing this event was to help our students understand how God wants to use them to reach their schools. The harsh reality is that even when we combine with other ministries, we represent a small fraction of the student population in this area. There are so many who have yet to experience the life-changing power of Jesus Christ.
Some highlights from the event:
- I loved seeing denominational walls come down as we joined in worship together.
- I was encouraged to see our students step up and take seriously the challenge to pray for their friends and school.
- It was exciting to see our students make connections with classmates that they didn’t know were believers.
