Youth conference will encourage teens to tell others about Jesus


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (KT) – Kentucky students will gather in Bowling Green later this month to discover why staying silent about the gospel in no longer an option.

The Kentucky Baptist Convention and conference host Hillvue Heights Church invite all teenagers to attend YEC at on April 27-28.

The Young, Engaged and Connected Conference had long been known as the Youth Evangelism Conference. The two-day worship and learning event will focus on engaging young people in how to connect classmates to Jesus.

“The best person to reach a student is another student,” said KBC Evangelism Strategist Andy McDonald. “During YEC, teenagers will hear the gospel presented in a clear and compelling way and be inspired to share the message with their lost friends.”

McDonald said students will be inspired through drama, story-telling and preaching. Students will also learn how to share their faith by using the easy-to-learn "3 Circles" gospel conversation tool.

“God’s going to call you at some point in your life, and when He calls, you got to be ready to go,” said Clayton King, founder and president of Crossroads Summer Camps and Clayton King Ministries.

King, who has authored more than a dozen Christian books including two with his wife Sharie, will be the motivational preacher at YEC.

King said when he was baptized at the age of 14, he did not know all God had planned for his life. To see the great big master plan would have been overwhelming. But King knew God wanted to hear only four words from his mouth.

“I’m here. I’ll go,” King said. “That’s all we need to say to Jesus.”

Joining Clayton and Sharie King will be Christian illusionist Zak Mirzadeh and the improvisation duo of Far From Ordinary.
