Winter Blitz 2018 is now in the books. The fun spirit-filled weekend kicked off Friday night, January 19, 2018 as youth groups from throughout the conference poured into Broadbent Arena in Louisville. As the groups arrived, the anticipation grew. Before long the stage was filled with the sounds of the band Carrollton followed by illusionist Bryan Drake and the speaker for the weekend, Philip Urdiales.
After a snowy and bitterly cold week, groups participating in our Saturday afternoon mission excursions were greeted with mild weather. Groups participating in mission activities did a variety of community outreach ranging from engaging with the homeless to helping to host a party for refugee children.
While Winter Blitz is a weekend of fun it is also a weekend to share the love of Christ and to help young people grow in their faith. Saturday night during the altar call young people flooded the aisles to give their hearts to Christ. The youth leaders were also given the opportunity to grow and share in their knowledge, with a new Leaders Lounge that was offered throughout the weekend. On Sunday Bishop Fairley made an appeal to those that feel a call to ministry and 140 of our youth responded. Glory!
