The 2019 edition of Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 3’s Groovz Summer Youth Camp with the esteemed Zonal Director, Pastor Femi Otenigbagbe, inspired and empowered 353 youth in attendance. The program, which concluded on August 25th, featured several physically, mentally and spiritually energizing activities from morning drills to various games and the LoveWorld Reading Challenge Exercise. A special impartation and thanksgiving service with the esteemed Zonal Director, and the ‘Face of Groovz’ pageantry rounded out the event gloriously.
Several reading groups across the zone participated in the LoveWorld Reading Challenge Exercise, sitting in circles on the open field. The serene environment stimulated reading skills as teenagers collectively studied a classic book by the man of God, Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, ‘Praying the Right Way’. Participants in this unique exercise got answers to many questions in their hearts and also gained higher knowledge on the subject of prayer, while improving their reading skills.
The newly introduced, ‘Face of Groovz’ Summer Youth Camp pageantry, flagged a lot of intrigue with a tough and keenly contested title requiring great mental prowess and show of charisma. Three contestants made it to the finals of the competition, where Brother Collins Idara emerged the ultimate winner. This victory came with several gifts, including a 1-year subscription package to the Pastor Chris Digital Library (PCDL) platform.
The most memorable aspect of the event, was the special teaching and impartation session with esteemed Pastor Femi Otenigbagbe. The teenagers expressed contagious excitement with thunderous shouts of joy in anticipation of a divine touch, and time with the Word as the Zonal Director made his way into the auditorium to minister. Pastor Femi reminded the young people of the message of endless possibilities that had been communicated to them in the program. He shared, through the inspiring story of Joseph and the story of David, the importance of the leading of the Spirit in the life of a young person.
The Zonal Director, made a special call for those who needed to rekindle the fire of the Spirit in their hearts, and also for those who were yet to receive Christ into their lives, leading many to Christ and imparting others with special gifts, and graces by the Spirit. Most assuredly, teenagers and youth of Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 3 have moved to another level of greatness.
