Mission Possible

The Bible is filled with men and women who were called by God to fulfill unique missions. Moses was called by God from a burning bush to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Nehemiah's mission was to rebuild the city wall. Esther's mission was to save the Jews. Jonah's mission was to evangelize Nineveh. Mary was asked by God to bear His Son. God gave Paul the vision to launch the first church.

God is still looking for people to stand in the gap so that they can be used to impact the world. The mission of Youth-A-Palooza 2006 was to find a few young men and women, who should they choose to accept a mission, would be open to God assigning them a mission. As you know from watching Mission Impossible, these instructions are likely to self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck!

Over 400 youth and sponsors gathered at Epworth by the Sea during Martin Luther King Weekend to be challenged, study, worship, and serve in mission in the St. Simmons community.  Students cleaned up the beaches and downtown area on St. Simons. Students were challenged to Get the Word Out when they returned home.
11 Get the word out. Teach all these things. 12 And don't let anyone put you down because you're young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity (1 Timothy 4:11-12, The Message).

Participants said:

• “We had a blast during our Mission project at the Pier!”
• “Worship was awesome.”
• “I really enjoy seeing my old friends from camp at Youth-A-Palooza.”
• “This weekend taught me that God has a mission for my life.”
• “I know now that everything I do in my life is a part of God’s mission.”
• “I really liked the scripture we talked about in my small group. Paul told Timothy to Get the Word Out. That is what I will do when I get home.”
• “I can’t wait for Youth-A-Palooza 2007!”
