Hi Youth Family,
Today, in the Time with Abba, I was encouraged to SHOUT for Jesus! There were two blind men who heard Jesus was coming, they shouted and shouted. The surrounding crowds hushed these blind men, but Jesus heard them and responded: “What do you want me to do for you?” These blind men quickly responded, “Lord, we want our sight.” Jesus with great compassion moved through the crowds and touched these men’s eyes and they were healed.
Earlier this week, I strained my back and was immobile for maybe 36 hours. As I was lying on my floor this morning, I read this passage and thought to myself, what if I did that? I decided to call out to Jesus for healing, it felt embarrassingly excessive, but then I got up and began moving. The more I moved, the less I felt the pain. Though the pain isn’t completely gone, I’m moving much better now. I received my mobility back!
- Be Courageous
- Expect Jesus to move
- Trust and Follow Jesus as the blind men did

2019 Winter Retreat Update
Registration is now CLOSED!
Praise the Lord! We have record 105 students attending the retreat this year!! Many of them have been fasting social media, junk food, and more, in preparation for their time with God at the retreat. Parents, please join us in praying for your students as they hear about ‘Conquering Giants’ from our speaker, Gil Blanco.
REMINDER: Pastor Elliott is gathering the intercessors who will fast and pray for spiritual breakthrough for the youth throughout the duration of the retreat. Intercession team will have a modified schedule, (fasting and praying before the retreat, waking up earlier than others, intercession during free time,) If you’re not serving in any other capacity for the retreat, and would like to join, sign up here:
