Recapping the Day!
"The interactions and talks at LoveFest were so fruitful with some fantastic people! I was encouraged by the other speakers, the youth, and especially the adult leaders and parents who made this a priority for the young people in their lives. Thanks to all who came out and may you be blessed, knowing that we are wholly fulfilled by God’s love that is seen through Jesus!" ~ Grant Carey
“I was encouraged by the parents who took time to learn more about the issues affecting their children.” ~ Gina Gleason
"I do want you to know that Love Fest is one of the real highlights for my year. What you are doing is not only well done but spiritually heroic. We prayed for your event before hand and believe that what you are doing is so vital that I believe it should be replicated in every church and community across the country. Thank you for what you do. Please keep us posted on your continuing ministry." ~ Joe and Cindy Castillo
"The day ended with an especially touching moment for me, as my life came full circle. I watched as a woman I had mentored as a teen and young adult, welcomed the opportunity to pass along the wisdom she'd received from me to a girl trying to find her place in the world." ~ Karen Kropf
One 17 year old male quipped, “I knew [sex as a teen] was a bad idea, but now I’m not even considering it.”
A 21 year old female said, “I went to many abstinence conferences that were OK, but this spoke to my heart, as I am in my first relationship.”
There were lightbulb moments, thought-provoking revelations and challenges to higher standards throughout the day. Parents indicated they were better equipped to guide their teens. Young adults saw the impact their choices make, on not only themselves, but society as well. The food was great, the music was pumping and God got the glory for lives that were changed.
