On February 14-16, 2020 the Lake Union Conference will hold a Youth Evangelism Congress in Shipshewana, IN, for those willing to be COURAGEOUS to spread the gospel with God's power (Joshua 1:9).
In 2018, 360+ senior youth & young adults ages 16-35 in the Lake Union Conference gathered together with pastors, youth directors, ministerial directors, Conference presidents, and Union administrators to be empowered and resourced for evangelism back in their local churches and communities. As a result, young leaders were able to use up to $160,000 dollars from a joint evangelism fund by the LUC, local Conference & the local churches to launch new evangelism projects.
In 2020, the goal is still the same: to bring the gospel to local church communities.
Don't miss out on this opportunity! Talk to your local pastor about how you can be involved as a delegate.

We will have short messages on prayer by individuals such as Jerry and Janet Page, Melody Mason and Mark Finley.
