First Baptist Church is excited to announce our first one-day youth rally:
Featuring Worship led by our friends of Trinitas (Shreveport, LA and Tyler, TX), and teaching by Micah Powell.
Fear can do a lot more than cause us to shake or want to hide. For some, it causes us to become angry, fearful- and it can destroy families, friendships - and chase us from the very things in life that matter. F.U.D. - Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt... After the last year and a half, we all should be very familiar with these terms. Fear overtook many, changed lives - Uncertainty cause paralysis and government officials to make decisions that will long be questioned, and of course Doubt - or even pessimism that comes naturally with fear and uncertainty - and all three of these things are tools that Satan uses to try to stop, squash, and destroy lives that could otherwise be joy-filled testimonies.
Trinitas is a trio consisting of Chanin & Mandy Barker (Shreveport, LA), plus Keith Copley (Tyler, TX), who bring an energy and excitement fueled by a genuine passion for Christ and the Saving Grace poured out through the Gospel. The music styles in the library of Trinitas is across the spectrum - from Southern Gospel to Contemporary Christian and Praise - We are glad to have Trinitas as a part of this important event!
Micah Powell, and his wife of 12 years Rachel, is currently a student at Midwestern Baptist
Theological Seminary in Kansas City, and has served as a worship pastor, youth pastor, family pastor, and frequent camp + youth speaking engagements. Micah is an engaging speaker, compassionate soul, and absolutely a spaz for the redeeming work of Jesus Christ - with a passion and energy for equipping folks for life and ministrythrough discipleship. His background speaks very clearly and loudly to the subject of battling fear, uncertainty, and doubt, and there is absolutely no chance that you listen to Micah without coming away strengthened and very likely changed.
WHO CAN COME?
This event is open to all, though primarily geared towards Junior High- College aged students. We will have opportunity for questions, prayer, and of course - worship!
