The Christmas Holidays are now over and tonight will bring in a new year. Time certainly does go quickly! 2016 will bring in a year of new beginnings and a fresh start for everyone. Let’s make this a year like no other. Let’s give Christ first priority in our hearts and lives this year.
One of the first priorities for all youth leaders within 300 miles of Charleston, SC should be to register your youth for Hearts On Fire. This year marks the 30th year since Scott Carter answered God’s call in his life to begin a youth conference. It has grown tremendously during that time but the mission has stayed the same, to reach middle school and high school students with the gospel of Christ and to encourage believers to walk in the truth and integrity of Christ. Those who attend the Charleston conference will be blessed by having Scott Carter as one of their speakers this year.
Ken Freeman will be speaking at the conference on Friday evening. Ken is a very exciting speaker with a passion to tell others about Jesus. Following Ken on Twitter will make you wonder if he ever slows down. His tweet today said that last night he saw over 300 saved. God has blessed Ken with the ability to connect to people of any age group, culture, or background. Ken Freeman lives with a passion to bring people to know Christ and to make a deeper, more intimate, commitment to Him. Your youth group will go home with a desire to serve God that will certainly spill over into the entire church body.
Zac Bennett the worship leader at The Lift, First Baptist Indian Trail, NC, will lead Hearts On Fire Charleston worship services. Zac Bennett & the Lift Live joined us a few years ago and they were amazing. Their music will certainly prepare your heart for worship.
On Saturday afternoon, February 13 we will have three groups in concert, the AFTERS, MIKESCHAIR and the JJ Weeks Band. What a great way to start off 2016 with your youth group, two days, two speakers, praise and worship and three concerts, all for only $40. Make your plans now to attend. Register online at www.heartsonfireministries.org or call 865-776-2629 to answer any questions you might have regarding the conference at Charleston Southern University, Lightsey Auditorium.
We wish each of you and your youth groups a Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you in Charleston.
