YOUTH EMPHASIS WEEK was held March 22-24 with Jay Delp and Shawn McBride as speakers. One special event took place on March 23, when 220 young people from area youth groups met on campus for a rally. The students enjoyed music by Sound Investment, Grace’s contemporary Christian music group, and heard a gospel presentation from guest speaker Shawn McBride. As a result of the rally, 15 teenagers made first-time decisions to follow Christ with their lives. We’re thankful for this good news and ask that you join us in praying for these new Christians.
