The question was once asked: is there any importance of engaging and reaching young people? The answer is obviously, yes. In addition to simply saying yes, action was put forth by the Louisiana Progressive Baptist State Convention’s North Region under the leadership of Rev. Henry F. Johnson, Jr., President, and Rev. NaJee Johnson, North Regional Vice President along with the Louisiana Progressive State’s Youth Director, Lady Yeshia White – Johnson.
This action in attempt of engaging and reaching young people was put forth Saturday, July 16, 2022, at 3pm. This event was held at the Wired for Love Fellowship Pastored by the Rev. Glen Turner of which is in the same parking lot of Maxway. The idea behind this endeavor was to display that it is perfectly acceptable to have faith in Christ and fun at the same time.
We had a gospel message give the Rev. Quanerick Milton from the Tabernacle Church in Shreveport. He shared with the young people about living to their full potential and fulling their purpose in God. Rev. Milton express to the young people that they need a personal relationship with the Lord. We allowed young people at will to use their gift of dancing, singing, and playing of an instrument.
We also shared with the young people by giving them Ice Cones, Nachos and Hot Dogs. It was not attended as desired. However, we feel blessed for the impact that was made on the Youth which attended. The Young People expressed they felt loved and thought about. We will be doing more outreaches for Young People. We are accepting community support.
