Hundreds of students gathered for discipleship events led by IBSA this fall. Youth Encounter (YE), IBSA’s annual one-day student event, featured a clear presentation of the gospel and practical evangelism training for teens.
YE was staged at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Decatur and Cornerstone Church in Marion. “We really saw God move,” IBSA’s Kevin Jones said. “Over 760 attended with 39 decisions for Christ. Plus 16 students said they feel called to ministry.”
AWSOM Weekend, an overnight retreat for teen girls, was held Nov. 4-5 at Tabernacle. More than 200 middle school and high school girls focused on evangelism and discipleship.
“It was so powerful for the girls who attended and served,” IBSA’s Carmen Halsey said, “And the leader sessions and weekly post-conference digital devotions will prepare youth groups to launch new Bible studies this January.”
AWSOM stands for “Amazing Women Serving Our Maker.”
