Over 50 young people were gathered together at Jar. Young people came as far as Bodø and Kristiansand. Various nationalities were represented during the meetings.
Youth Event 2016 was packed with exciting activities from running memorizing Bible verses, quoting Scriptures to throwing sticks into buckets.
The theme for the event was “Mountain”. Preachers delivered topical messages about God’s interaction with human life that happened on or around mountains. The messages were about (in order of the topical messages):
- Mt. Sinai
- Mt. Carmel
- Mt. Olives
- Mt. Gerizim and Mt. Ebal
- Mt. Moriah
The atmosphere during the services was electrifying as the Spirit of God was moving in the hearts of people in the service room. Conviction and profession of faith was evident, but more importantly obedience to the written Word of God.
Three people made a decision to be baptized in Jesus name. One person was filled with the Holy Ghost for the first time with the evidence of speaking in tongues and many more renewed.
Youth Event 2016 was not just an exciting gathering of young men and women, but also a pivotal point in the lives of these men and women. We will look back at 2016 and recognize its importance for Christian development.
