DAVIS—Thousands of students will converge on the new buildings at Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center Feb. 19-20, for the Youth Evangelism Conference (YEC).







“The objective of the Youth Evangelism Conference is to give students and student leaders opportunities to shape and develop personal evangelism in their schools, homes, and communities,” said Nick Atyia, pastor of Seminole, First, and former student evangelism and missions specialist at the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. “Providing robust equipping breakouts from quality leaders to help encourage students to succeed in the daily task of sharing their faith is the new strategy for YEC.”

Keynote speakers for the general sessions include Ray Comfort, Emeal Zwayne and Atyia.

Comfort is a best-selling author of 80 books, and is co-host with Kirk Cameron of the TV program, “The Way of the Master,” which is broadcast to 190 countries.

Zwayne is president of Living Waters Publications. After his radical conversion to Christ in 1991, he enrolled at Biola University as a Biblical Studies and Theology major. Having received his pastoral ordination in 1995, he served for almost six years as a full-time associate pastor and vice president of his church’s board. He is the executive producer of the “180” and “Evolution vs. God” movies, as well as “The Way of the Master” television program. His teachings have extended to people of different age groups throughout America and other parts of the world, and he has been the featured speaker at various conferences, churches and learning institutions.

YEC worship will be led by the Jared Wood Band from Dallas.

Students also will have their choice of several breakout sessions on evangelism and missions to attend.

Registration is available online at www.skopos.org/YEC. The cost for each student and sponsor is $38, which includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Churches may secure a cabin for the event that will best suit the needs of each group.
