Youth Studies majors at Valley Forge Christian College in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, recently hosted a 4-day outreach to the local community. The event was held January 25-28, and featured special guests Reggie Dabbs, Preston Centuolo and Jason Lamer, who partnered with Rev. Phil Baker, VFCC Youth Ministries Specialist.
The group visited six local schools and shared in nine assemblies speaking to more than 4,000 students. The event was well received in the community by students and teachers alike. According to one teen, "This was the best school assembly we have ever had!"
Though the group could not share the gospel during the assemblies, on Wednesday evening they invited interested students to attend a "concert" in the Flower Chapel on the campus of Valley Forge Christian College. During that service, 47 young people responded to an invitation to meet Jesus Christ as their Savior.
The event helped to forge relationships between Youth Studies majors at VFCC and local schools. Baker noted, "Seeing school administrators smile all week as their students came alive at these assemblies was tremendous. We are looking forward to long-term relationships with the surrounding schools and community."
