In June, the middle and high school ministries embarked on separate sessions of worship at Calvin College, in Michigan, for the Central District Youth Convention, known as CDYC. This highly anticipated week provide an environment created for students to help them encounter the transforming power of Jesus Christ through engaging worship, creative teaching and connection with other students. Between the two sessions, we had 8 students accept Christ and several students commit to a public profession of their faith, at our August outdoor baptism. Each session provided such an exciting forum to see how God is moving not only through the students, but the ministry leaders as well.
Just listened to possibly the best message I've ever heard at @thecdyc this morning!
CDYC was incredible! Can't wait to see and hear what God does this year!
Another great day at CDYC. Got to meet some really cool people!
These weeks spent in ministry with our students, are at the heart of the Beyond vision. Equipping students with the good news, encouraging them to reach others, and teaching them how to build on that firm foundation found only in a full life in Jesus Christ.
