There may have been rides, loud music and heaps of free food at last months Ballistic Youth Event, but it was God they came for, with 71 young people responding to the Gospel.

Many of the regions youth groups combined for the Friday night lock-in event, with 300 young people from 11 different youth groups enjoying the fun of bungee–runs, mechanical bulls, fairy floss, and snow cones.

The Bridge Community Church Band lead the praise and worship, and Ps. Sunjay Stevenson, from iSee Church in Brisbane, shared the Gospel message.

“There were a lot of kids there that had never even been inside a church before,” said event coordinator Nat Spary, from the BASE Youth Centre.

“So it was amazing to see 71 young people respond at the end of Ps. Sunjay’s message. 31 of these responses were first–time decisions to follow Christ.”

But the event didn’t finish there, continuing on the Saturday with a one-day conference aimed at discipleship and providing opportunities for young people to discover and develop their giftings.

Young people could choose electives from Christian apologetics to graffiti art, and preachers school to hip hop dance.

“It was great to have young people turn up to our discipleship and training day,” said Nat. “It was so exciting to see young people with a hunger and passion to serve God. “

“We want to help encourage them to use and develop their giftings for the glory of God.”
