On September 16 – 18 Youth Revival 2009 was held at North East Baptist Church where the pastor is Rev. Dr. Wesley Elam, Sr. .Â Â Â Special thanks goes out to Rev. Yvette Crawford for pulling together the people that made everything happen.Â Two of the choirs that visited with us were theÂ Knightdale High School Gospel Choir,Â the UNC Gospel ChoirÂ & the J.W. Freeman Youth Choir of Mt. Olive MBC.
In addition to powerful choirs we had some of the finest youth preachers that one could ever sit under.
Rev. Michael Evans, Jr.
Minister Ryan Brooks
Rev. Joshua Brown.
Each one of them caught and held the attention of the youth that were in attendance. The children soon found out that they old traditional style is not the only way to worship God.Â Â The atmosphere was one that was encourage free praise with a youthful spirit.Â Â All three nights left one looking forward to the next day.Â Â If you view some of the pictures below you will feel the impact that the revival had on the children.Â The children were able to see that it’s cool to be in love with Jesus Christ and that you can love God, worship and praise Him different ways.Â Â Even some of the older adults enjoyed the energetic and youthful approach to praising God. Â This is what our kids need if we want to keep them involved and looking forward to attending church.
Further below is a slide show that you can watch to see all the photographs.
