LUC Youth Evangelism Congress • February 12-14, 2016                                            January 8, 2016
Hello {First Name}, 

Happy New Year!

A new year has just begun. We usually take this time to think up our New Year's Resolutions.

Are you aware that you have been  Called to Serve  this new year? If we follow Jesus' example, we see that building relationships with the people around us, and serving them, will give us the opportunity to share the gospel with them.

"Christ's method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Savior mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed his sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, "Follow Me." -  Ministry of Healing, p. 143

February 12-14, 2016 is right around the corner. We are positive that you have been Called to be a part of the Youth Evangelism Congress.

Register now, or, if you have not already done so, contact your pastor ASAP and request to be one of your local church delegates. 

See you soon,

Our main speaker
Jeffrey Rosario is an evangelist, revivalist, and trainer. His “down to earth” demeanor, biblically sound preaching, and apologetic leanings have made him a featured and favorite speaker all over the world, including such far flung places as Nepal and New Zealand. Still a young man of 29, Jeffrey has been in full-time ministry since he was 17 years old. In 2010 Jeffrey formally joined the ARISE team, though he had been utilized as a visiting instructor for five years prior. He is presently sharpening his writing talents via various articles and blogs, and is working on his first book which will be released later this year. Jeffrey is married to Marianna, a student, and enjoys videography, reading, and avoiding the outdoors.  
Our Conference Youth Directors
This Congress will also be a great opportunity to intermingle with pastors, Youth Directors, Ministerial Directors and even Conference and Union Presidents.
