Youth Speakers Info Mtg. on Sunday! (watch this vintage video!)

Watch this “vintage” video of our 1st Youth Speakers team and the “Speakers” process, and you’ll get to see Robert and Kathy when they were in high school! 🙂 

Hey TD!

One of THE most life-changing and transformative processes in TD through the years has been “Speakers,” as it is affectionately called.  It has changed the course of some of the lives of those who have gone through the process.  In fact, the majority of TD counselors and interns over the last decade have been “Speakers” alums; and this year’s TD leadership is no different: Robert, Kathy, Abigail, Daniel, Megan, Aileen, Michelle, Angela, and Jason all participated as Speakers in high school!

If any of you 10th – 12th graders are curious or interested to learn more, we will have a mandatory information meeting THIS Sunday from 12:45 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. in one of the classrooms at the GWC. During this meeting, we will answer any and all questions regarding the 2020 CA So. Baptist Youth Speakers Tournament (YST).

You don’t have to know for sure if you are going to do “Speakers” or not this year to come to the meeting.  In fact, the meeting is being held to help you decide one way or another.  And don’t worry, there will be no pressure to join.

Hope to see you there!

Turn on the … Ignition!

During the final few days of 2014, several of us attended the California Southern Baptist Convention’s youth conference, Ignition, whose theme was “It Matters.”  It was an energetic, lively, and meaningful time of being reminded that everything we think and do matters and affects everyone around us.

One of the big highlights was our very own Daniel, Joseph, and Alexandra giving their winning Youth Speakers Tournament speeches in front of 2,000 of their peers from all over California!  They did an amazing job speaking to and challenging California’s youth, as you’ll see over the next few weeks.

Here’s Daniel’s speech, “Spiritual Discipline That Makes a Difference,” as well as some fun (including backstage) footage!  Enjoy!

Reminder: SPCH on Saturday, No TD Friday

Just a friendly reminder that there is no TD this Friday.  We will be having our monthly ministry to the convalescent home.  Meet at my house at 9:30 a.m.  We will NOT be eating lunch at the Hsieh’s home this month, as we have the Youth Speakers Association Drill at church at 1 p.m.  So, please have your parents pick you up from the Hsiehs’ at 12:15 p.m.  Thanks.

And here’s a big shout out to our Youth Speakers:  Aileen, Alex, Bev, Carolyn, Daniel, Erika, Iris, Joseph, Judy, Melody, Micah, and Priscilla!  God’s best to you guys as you proclaim His truth!
