My name is Phil and i go to Northfield. I volunteer each year with Merseyside Christian Youth Camps www.mcyc.co.uk
We are blessed at Northfield with people of all ages and the young people have always been a blessing to us and we have always encouraged them to play their part.
It was my 20th year of being a group leader at MCYC camps and each year I have seen young people grow over the years from 9 year old children to become church leaders/Sunday school teachers/group leaders at MCYC.
Last week at MCYC I was at the 15-17 year old camp and the young people were on a trip to Llandudno in North Wales. They had been taking part in Bible studies and worship times all week. We provided fish and chips for them on the West Shore of LLandudno. The worship leader had a guitar and said to the campers that there would be a chance for a worship time in the open. The campers looked nervous a first but once the song "My lighthouse" by Rend Collective they really went for it including actions.
The young people were inspiring. It was great in an age where people are labelled at troublemakers etc 110 young people who want to serve the Lord and serve others can stand in the middle of a promenade and worship Jesus. Check out the video. They were inspirational
Let us always pray for our young people and encourage them and may the Lord be their lighthouse throughout their lives.
