YQ 2023 Highlights!
What we hear
Week one was awesome!! We had been meeting as a youth group in fall but stopped in November because of restrictions. This past Thursday was our first time back together - it was so good! We watched and sang along with the worship - it was very well done!! So professional. Lots of good feedback on that! The main session was also fantastic! Great analogies, good humor, excellent message! So thanks! We're really looking forward to the next 3 weeks!! This is much appreciated!
YQ was such an encouragement to us and to our youth group. Our students really engaged with the content, we were able to have amazing chats online afterwards, and it gave us a much needed break. Thank you for making it so fun, so full of worship, and for trying something new in the midst of all of this craziness.
My small group really dug into the third main session. The questions were really helpful in guiding our discussion and they were open to sharing what they've been working through. Definitely the best session for our group so far
When we share about Youth Quake we will share what an amazing atmosphere of love for God and one another. The utmost respect being shown for every person at the event. We will speak so highly of the "Lunch and Learns" for the youth workers. And the highlight will be the change we see in our youth for the positive and the increased love and the stronger relationship that they have for our Lord.
