As Christians come together in agreement, praying daily with faith and believing God for the lost in their community, God hears and meets us where He is needed. Without prayer, it is simply human efforts. With prayer and faith, it is people we love and care for coming to salvation through Christ. It is lives being transformed! To pray and to see those prayers answered through the Celebration is both a blessing and a privilege.
Every aspect of the Celebration directs believers toward prayer—determined, heartfelt, ceaseless prayer. So, as we near the Celebration, please be in prayer for Will Graham, our team leaders, and most importantly, that the Word of the Lord be spread throughout the community and area.
Our training is rooted in the Christian Life and Witness Course (CLWC) for adults and FM419 for youth. These are the best opportunities you have to become equipped for a Celebration as well as a lifetime of evangelism and discipleship.
Christian Life and Witness Course
CLWC will reignite your faith and empower you to live a life that radiates God’s love. Discover the victory He has for His children and equip yourself to share it with others through this dynamic course. You’ll also find practical help in reaching the next generation for Christ. The course is taught by a representative of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
FM419 is specifically designed for youth, but adults are welcome to attend. Youth from across the region will gather for three sessions of music and life-changing training. Get down to the basics of what you believe, find power to live what you say, and learn how to share your faith with others.
Andrew then went to find his brother Peter and told him, “We have found the Messiah!” And he brought Peter to meet Jesus. Jesus looked intently at Peter for a moment and then said, “You are Simon, John’s son—but you shall be called Peter, the rock!”
John 1:41-42 (TLB)
Bring a Friend is based on that passage. Those of us who have a personal relationship with Christ must seek out our brothers and sisters who don’t know Him and bring them to Him. We do this by making a list of those we know who need to know Jesus, then praying for them and building/strengthening our relationships with them. We make plans to take them to the Celebration services, not just invite them to go. Many people have come to Christ because of Bring A Friend.
