Purpose driven , fun and impacting…
Such are terms that have long been associated with the annual Blantyre Baptist Church event, YouthFest. Since it’s take off in 2006 the event has been driven towards reaching a wide variety of youth within Blantyre and across Malawi with the gospel.
This year’s YouthFest (YouthFest17) in particular, is no different and is set to rattle the rafters with a wide variety of activities going down at the festival including an exciting opening night, an arts expression concert, workshop, sermons as well as a joyous night of celebration on new year’s eve.
The festival will carry the theme : reflect, redidicate and stand out.
The inspiration behind this is drawn from Daniel 1:8, in the sense of how Daniel and his friends dedicated themselves to God in very difficult and overwhelming situations and how that made them stand out as the best.
The focus is on reflecting upon our own lives, to see how we are fairing amist various challenges.
The hope is that people may come to dedicate/rededicate their lives to calling and standards God has given. So that we stand out as salt and light of this world.
Youth Fest starts on the 29th of December with the opening night followed by the Concert featuring South African singer Lilly Million along side many Malawian acts. The grand finale in on December 31 all the way into the New Year!
