This weekend Bell Central will host the Our Father’s House I Am Chosen youth conference.
The faith-based conference will have guest speakers and music groups from across the country on Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m. and again at 6 p.m. The entertainment list includes a praise and worship team from Our Father’s House, Christian rap artist Lawrence Connor, Brian Haley, Savannah Lewis-Helton, Elder Germaine Brunson and Christian music from 7eventh Time Down.
I Am Chosen will be aimed toward middle school through college-aged students, but will have information and activities for people of all ages.
“This conference was something that God placed upon my heart. He gave me a vision and all of the glory goes to him,” said event leader and youth pastor Justin Helton.
This free event is open to the public however donations will be taken to cover operating costs.
“This event is so important for the students of this region because so many of our youth feel isolated, depressed and really of no value when God sees them so differently,” said Helton.
