Students at Iglesia Comunal la Esperanza (Hope Community Church), a Grace Brethren congregation in Valrico, Fla. (Javier Forero, pastor) are gearing up of a Saturday night concert to raise funds to attend Momentum Youth Conference, which will be held at Wheaton College from July 22 to 27.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. at 401 S. Saint Cloud Av, Valrico, Fla., on Saturday, July 12. The concert is free. Snacks will be available for purchase, with the proceeds going to the students for Momentum-related expenses.
The youth worship team (pictured at right) will present the concert. They have invested countless hours preparing and have played at several conferences and participated in many youth events for other churches.
The group ranges in age from 13 to 17 years old. Most have graduated from a two-year music school in Tampa and have a mission is reach their community with their music.
This will be the first time they have attended the Momentum conference and have been given a scholarship to attend. Proceeds from the concert will be used for travel expenses to Illinois with their youth pastor, Peter Littrel, and their senior pastor, Javier Forero.
