We started with three young people and God led us into a discipleship ministry. Wednesday nights grew until we were having 30 or 40 coming to worship the Lord. Then our Rec Night came about. About seven o'clock they would start gathering. We had a volleyball net, a ping pong table, and an old record player. Those over in the kitchen were preparing popcorn and Kool-aid for refreshments. We never had one discipline problem. About 8 or so we would gather up all the kids in a corner and share Christ with them. It was long but usually I would ask one of our kids to share their testimony and then present the Gospel and we always had young people receive Christ. We had no planned program. No exotic food. Just Jesus, joy, and fun.
One more thing , I stated we started with three young people. well, our last event at that church was a retreat. We had 87 go on that retreat, that is young people and sponsors. In fact, I had to turn down some sponsors because we had too many. This was the work of God.
