As always we will have spirit inspired worship music brought to us in a relevant way that all of our students will connect with and enjoy as they are challenged to worship our Lord and Savior in Spirit and in Truth. This year we have a band put together with the very best of the best musicians in Michigan and led by Mick Schatz. Mick is a Florida native who has served in local church ministry as an associate pastor of worship and students for years. He has in incredible voice but even greater heart t lead God’s people and particularity students in worship.
Each year we are blessed to see our students serve Christ via local outreach missions in the greater Flint area.
This year you can expect the same! We will be partnering with local shelters and feeeding centers to serve groceries and personal items for the homeless and hurting in the Flint area. We are asking each adult and student to bring atleast 1 personal hygiene item with them this year to YEC.
Students and leaders alike will be serving alongside each other, not only so that others may be helped, but with intentionality that our service will open up windows of opportunity to share the gospel with those to whom we are reaching out.
This year our recreation will no doubt be different. We are working out the details now for and fun filled night together.
This will be a great time for students to get to know other students and just kick back and have fun midway through the weekend.
