blogmanager Report Leave a Comment

Some have described GYC as a conference, while others have classified it more as a movement. The difference between these two is if the impact has lasted throughout the year.  According to the post-conference statistics, it seems that GYC is a year-round movement, not just a once-a-year event. During outreach in Houston, TX, donations were collected for the cause of …

Two weeks ago, over 4,500 young people took part in GYC’s 2017 conference in Phoenix, Arizona, focused on the theme: “Arise” from Isaiah 60:1-3.

Generation. Youth. Christ. This movement has a very special place in my heart. Two years ago, the conference was held in Baltimore, MD, only 20 minutes from my home.

She sat in the dust, not moving, not talking, not interacting with any other children. Her head was down, her dress soiled, and her limbs covered with sores.

The first appeal was this: after his final address on Monday evening, David Asscherick made a call specifically to those European attendees who would …
