PRAY & PRAISE
On Saturday, November 15, Youth for Christ in Jamaica celebrated their National Talent for Christ event along with their National Convention. The ministry team from Kingston “won” by taking the greatest number of victories in categories such as preaching, quartet, male voice solo and choirs. It was amazing to see the talents and giftedness of these young people.
Youth for Christ in Jamaica is releasing its second full-length movie, the premier showing, Thursday the 20th of November. Titled, “The Gift Everlasting”, it is about broken relationships and in particular, about marriage. Their first movie, “Just Another Friday” won awards in the Caribbean and Florida, USA.
Youth for Christ in Jamaica is also gearing up again to host GENESIS, an all-night, New Year´s Eve mega rally. Invited guests include some of the top Christian artists and speakers. This event attracts thousands of teenagers who on this iconic night, hear the full Gospel. Pray as Youth for Christ fund-raises and seeks sponsors for this strategic and historic event.
2 Peter 1:6
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
Matthew 16: 18
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
The gifts of God, when used for His purposes, have a significant role to play in building the Church and taking back the darkness. Young people often ask themselves, “What am I good at? What can I offer? What difference could I make?” The role of Youth for Christ is to help young people identify that they are called by Christ, unique in Christ and useful for His purposes. Youth for Christ in Jamaica does a stellar job of providing a ministry platform for teenagers to hone and “fan into flame” their gifts. In a nation torn by gang-borne strife, unwanted pregnancies and corruption, there is a remnant, a group of committed staff members, empowering young people to proactively assault “the gates of hell”.
- Are you aware of your gifts?
- Are you stewarding them well?
- Are you asking for anointing and using them for extra-ordinary purposes?
The tourism board of Jamaica invites you to visit and “Be Extraordinary”! Thank God for the ministry of Youth for Christ, releasing teenagers and their giftedness to supernatural, transformative heights of service.
