V.O.I.C.E National Youth Fest returns for third year

Equipping the next generation to deal with predominant social issues the righteous way, the V.O.I.C.E National Youth Fest 2017 returns for this third consecutive year.

Organized by Forerunner AG National Youth Ministries along with other denomination churches with the purpose of uniting Christian youth spread across the nation, the trilingual Leadership Conference will be held on the 25th and 26th of August 2017, at People’s Church Narahenpita.

This year more than 1,250 youth leaders from all denominations will come together as the “Sound of Heaven” on earth in an effort to empower the future of our nation to bring positive change. The two-day conference will feature sessions conducted by Director Christ for the Nations Institute & Youth for the Nations Chris Estrada from Dallas, Texas, Director, Youth Alive Australia Cameron Bennett, the Youth Alive Band from Australia and prominent youth leaders from Sri Lanka.

Taking the youth conference to a global scale, this year teams from North India, Bangladesh and other Southern Asian nations will also attend. Sessions during the day will focus on educating youth on their role in influencing society in the forms of plenary sessions and group discussions which will also feature stories of people who have transformed society through sport, entertainment and philanthropy.

Each evening, the Youth Alive band together with local church bands will perform at a night rally open to the public. In previous years, the night rallies drew more than 4,000 youth and young adults together with their families each night. This year the organizers expect that number to increase as well.

In a generation driven by violence, oppression, injustice, and crime, the younger generation is called to raise a voice of hope to the nation. The conference and workshops create the first platform to thus empower the youth.

The conference fee will be 1,250/= rupees (Early bird registration will be 1,000 rupees until 15th July) and will include refreshments for both days. Registrations are now open and forms can be downloaded from the official VOICE National Youth Fest Facebook page. Closing date for registration for the conference is on the 10th of August 2017.  For more information please contact Mitchelle on 0772497994 or email info.voiceyouthfest@gmail.com
