Youth Evangelism Congress is this weekend

Youth gather for training and an opportunity to collect funds for ministry

From Friday evening (Feb. 14) to Sunday (Feb. 16) hundreds of youth from across the Lake Union are expected to gather for the bi-annual Youth Evangelism Congress in Shipshewana, Indiana.

Featured Speaker is Justin Khoe, professional YouTuber, podcaster and church consultant, creating content for the spiritually curious. By bringing people from opposing ideologies, religions and politics, Justin works toward a world where each person has a more established set of beliefs because they have been challenged and explored.
