SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- America’s youth are facing an array of problems from external issues like poverty, poor educational systems, violence, drugs, pregnancy, gangs, racism, etc., but they are also facing internal issues like thoughts of suicide, fear, frustration, and failure. And they feel as if there is only a dialogue from adults about what adults think the problems are, but no genuine concern to find out what youth really know are their problems. But the Youth Ministry at Emmanuel Baptist Church in San Jose, CA, is interested in a true discourse about the problems that today’s youth are facing.
As a result, before you feel totally alone and isolated, please check out the Youth Conference/Revival at Emmanuel Baptist Church from Saturday, February 17th – Wednesday, February 21st, 2007. This is the Youth Ministries’ attempt to start a discourse that leads to active involvement from youth, parents, ministry volunteers, and other community leaders to find productive solutions to the real problems you know you face.
The Youth Department believes that youth have to be met where they are and as a result is a ministry that accepts you just as you are. Their motto is, “Find out who you are, and do it on purpose!” This conference will have town hall forums discussing topics like sexuality, music and entertainment, and everyday social ills and internal feelings. This conference is open to Youth of ALL Ages, Parents, and all interested in the betterment of today’s youth
Youth Conference 2007 will be held for three nights, Monday, February 19th – Wednesday, February 21st from 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm. Conference Registration and Free Food will be served from 5:30 pm to 6:20 pm. Youth Town-Hall Forms and separate Adult Classes will run from 6:30 pm – 7:20 pm. The Keynote Speaker, Rev. Otis Moss III, will address the conference attendees starting at 7:30 pm. Rev. Moss is the pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. Newsweek magazine recently cited Rev.
