Youth Councils Theme
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
The Eastern Territory is desperate to ignite the ZEAL of our youth with inspiring worship, meaningful fellowship, and examples of Christ-focused devotion. God gave us the gift of passion and hunger. We want to engage the hunger of their hearts by pointing them to the sincere love of Christ and focus their passions with opportunities of serving others. People are eaten up with conviction and boredom, and this overwhelming contradiction can lead people to cry out, “I gotta do something, I’m tired of being flat on the inside.” Let’s engage the ZEAL of our Youth by leading them to Jesus and give them a better option than the junk food of the world.
