For the fourteenth consecutive year the Rodgers Baptist Church will host a Youth Conference concurrently with their Missions Conference. The dates are Monday, July 26th – Wednesday, July 28th. As always, we are eager and excited to serve all those who are able to come. All youth in 6th – 12th grades and college students are invited to attend. Our prayer is that the youth conference will not only be fun but will also challenge your spirit for the cause of Christ.
This year’s theme is “Amplify!” and it is drawn from 1 Thessalonians 1:8 where Paul says of the young church at Thessalonica, “For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad.”
After being changed by the impact of the gospel, the Thessalonians became a sounding board of the gospel message. They were a channel through which the gospel was amplified. The sounding board picture is a good one because a sounding board does not create sound, it reflects sound. It is not the sound’s source, but it amplifies the sound for others to hear. The young church in Thessalonica amplified the powerful gospel message. We desire to be, and we want to encourage your young people to be, sounding boards of the gospel!
Pastor Robby Pollard of Berean Baptist Church in Houston, TX will be our conference speaker. Join us each morning at 9am as we are challenged from scripture to “amplify” the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our activities this year are a trip to Stonebriar Mall in Frisco on Tuesday, and an afternoon at Shenaniganz in Rockwall on Wednesday. The activities fee is $20. There is no charge for missionary kids. Registration begins Monday evening immediately following the service.
We have been busy with preparations and much in prayer for this conference. We are eager to serve you. Our desire is for God to be glorified and His people edified. Hope you can join us!
