YFC plans a different kind of banquet

GREENVILLE – “You didn’t need to have a speaker. Hearing what the kids had to say about how God is working in their lives was all I needed to hear!”

Each year after the Youth for Christ Report to the People and Fundraising Banquet, YFC staff members hear several comments like the ones above. And yet, each year, Youth for Christ has introduced another guest speaker to enhance the banquet program. ...Until this year.

This year, the Board and staff of Youth for Christ are preparing a different type of banquet program to take place on Nov. 12 and 13. Oh, it will include several teenagers sharing their testimonies like it does every year, but instead of a guest speaker, there will be time spent hearing from unpaid “champions” whose lives have been touched as they served with the ministry or contributed to its mission. But this is only part of the story.

If you attend this year’s Youth for Christ banquet, which will take place at the “All Season’s Place” at the Lighthouse Christian Center, the first things you’ll notice are how many people are behind the work of YFC and how much preparation has been made for your attendance. More than 350 guests are expected each night, and they will dine in style in a first-class setting with a delicious meal prepared by Catering by Michael.

For the rest of the evening your attention will be captivated as Youth for Christ tells its story in a moving and entertaining way. Live music, video, and drama will all be used to add variety to your experience, but like others who have attended in the past; your heart will probably be most touched by the people who share their stories from the stage. Don’t be surprised if at the end of the evening you feel motivated to get personally involved in helping teenagers after learning about the difference your help can make.

There is no cost to attend the Youth for Christ banquets and every adult is invited, although reservations are required. At the end of the evening, guests will have the opportunity to commit to volunteering, prayer, and financial support if YFC’s mission resonates with their hearts. The identical program will be presented each evening on Nov. 12 and 13, 6:30-9 p.m. Those wishing to attend can make reservations by calling Youth for Christ, 548-2477, or by e-mailing them at office@yfcmv.org.
