The youth group I help lead, CREW has entered a video contest through the Presbyterian Church USA and we need your help.
Our video, “Neighbor”, which was written and directed by Randy, is about becoming a missional youth group and serving those in our community. The video was made to be entered in a contest by ymiLIVE for Presbyterian Church USA youth groups from all around the country. ymiLIVE is dedicated to providing a voice to the youth members of the PC(USA) and its video challenge was created to allow the youth members of the denomination to express their creativity and faith.
Every youth group video submitted to the competition is an interpretation of the scripture verse, “Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living waters.” (John 7:38), which is the theme for this year’s 219th PC(USA) General Assembly.
The 10 finalists (based on the number of votes received) will be announced on June 9. From among the 10 videos with the most votes, the Youth Advisory Delegates will be invited to cast the final votes to determine the two winning videos. The winners will be announced at the 2010 General Assembly during the first week in July.
The Presbyterian Foundation Group will establish two $25,000 endowment funds to support youth ministry at the churches with the winning videos.
With the endowment, we can continue our monthly ministry of Feeding the Hungry in Detroit’s Cass Corridor, provide scholarships to events like Acquire the Fire, Youth Week during the summer and many of our other programs and ministries.
