Baptist Youth Challenge is a action packed full day of fun, fellowship, and fierce but friendly competitions and preaching. We take a day to bring church youth groups and community youth together for a day that young and old will never forget. There are crazy, bizzar, and totally fun team game competitions that all ages can compete on the same levels. The small children have their own set of games and the older kids have their team competitions.
The day is built around three preaching services from the Word of God. The messages are geared toward reaching teens and adults with the emphasis on seeing souls saved and the Christian walk strengthened. The morning will start at 9am with opening announcements and then the first preaching time. Then there are two hours of first round competitions followed with lunch and the second preaching time. The two more hours of fierce competitions between the teams of youth groups. We close the day with watermelon and refreshments our final preaching segment. Then the final event of the day is the awards and medal ceremony. The top three teams in points for the competitions of the day are awarded with trophy's and medals. We place a special emphasis on sportsmanship in which MVP medals are given to each person the judges have observed throughout the events of the day.
Everyone can become involved! At the last Baptist Youth Challenge, we had 15 churches to come together and well over 300 people came to the event that was held on an elementary school facility. The larger the crowd the better! Have fun and enjoyment in serving the Lord to reach out to the next generation of souls. The focus is on Jesus Christ our Savior and how fun it can be to be a Christian.
Make a positive impact in the lives of the youth and their families. We need workers for this fun filled day. Could you see yourself as a score keeper, judge, or game director? We need message runners, cooks for hot dogs and hamburgers, food servers, H2O technicians, alter workers, parking lot attendants, and people to just have a smile on their face over the good hand of God on the day.
