Lufkin ACTIVATE blew us away!
There is nothing quite like spending a week ministering to students and seeing over 250 of them begin a new relationship with Christ to top it all off! Terry Weaver, Hearts of Saints and Moses Uvere just returned from a week in Lufkin where their days were spent in front of students in the public schools talking to them about having big dreams for their lives. Each student body was different…from rural to very diverse urban, but the one thing that all those students had in common was that they want their life to count for something. These students were encouraged by the message of ACTIVATE. In each school, there were students that said this was the first time that they had been given permission to dream. At the end of the week we filled up the Lufkin Civic Center with about 2000 students! After some loud rock music and hip hop, Terry shared the gospel and the response was more than we could have ever imagined. Over 250 students with first time decisions and another 150+ filling the “altar area” crying out to God and recommitting their lives. We are so thankful to all the Youth Pastors in Lufkin for all their work to put this week together and for working together to make it happen. God is on the move in Lufkin and we are so honored to be a part of that.
