All of the Ministries!

by Katie on October 18, 2014

Youth Encounter isn’t just about music! In fact, it’s a small part of what we do and what makes our team function. Music is often a foot in the door, but we do so much more.

Youth Encounter uses music as a gateway for relational ministry! We have dinner with communities and talk to them about the Gospel, about ourselves, about their struggles. We encourage them and grow with them in the short time we get to know them.

On top of our awesome relational ministry, we have other programming. We are equipped to lead an interactive program, a Sunday Food Packaging 01Morning worship, nursing home and pre-school programs, game and youth nights, and Food Packaging Service Events with our partner organization Harvest Pack. East Lakes had the opportunity to lead their first ever Food Packaging Service Event in Crossville, TN on October 9th! And it was awesome!

We packaged over 14,000 meals for people who might not otherwise be able to have a balanced, nutritious meal. We had fun getting to know tons of people, joking with one another, and being Jesus’ hands and feet here on Earth. Talk about a way to bring Christ’s love to life!

I am so blessed to be serving this year! I can’t even begin to share with you the joy that I’ve experienced on the road. Knowing that lives are changed in the name of God is absolutely life changing!

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
Colossians 3:23-24
