Youth With A Mission will be offering a banquet on the Impact World Tour on Thursday, May 3, at 7 p.m. in the St. Catherineâ€™s Elementary School Gym.
â€śFeel free to bring your spouse or friends,â€ť Executive Director of Faith In Action at Mercy Hospital Vicki Grafing said in an email. Faith in Action is a part of the community faith leadership that is bringing in YWAMâ€™s Impact World Tour.
â€śWe will have a great praise band playing a couple songs; youâ€™ll see the powerpoint presentation of what IWT is.â€ť
The Launchout Banquet will be free to the public, and will be offering information on transformation in the community. The group is trying to â€ślighten upâ€ť the gospel and bring it to the 21st Century. YWAM has members from 149 countries and numerous different Christian denominations.
YWAM has three focuses in its ministry: Evangelism where creative tools and talents are used to present the gospel through drama, music, arts and sports camps, the Mercy Ministry is a more hands-on approach with members helping about 400,000 people annually around the world, and Training and Discipleship to help equip Christians to better serve others.
