YFC Germany "TrueStory" Reaches Youth with Gospel
YFC Germany and the Evangelical Youth Alliance of Darmstadt recently joined forces to co-host an impactful event called TrueStory. It was a week-long evangelism program specifically designed for teenagers and young people. From February 6th to 11th, a diverse group of participants had the opportunity to engage with a range of thought-provoking topics, including True Safety, True Justice, True Me, True Love, and True Life.
Each evening, an average of 130 enthusiastic attendees and volunteers gathered to immerse themselves in the message of the gospel. Among the evenings, Friday stood out as the highlight, drawing an impressive crowd of over 200 energetic youth. The chosen venue for this memorable gathering was the United Hall, which also served as the location for the inaugural youth center program known as United Center.
To create an atmosphere that resonated with the event’s purpose, the talented lighting engineer responsible for the hall constructed a captivating LED-illuminated cross. This symbol became a focal point throughout the week, inviting all attendees to approach and engage with its significance. The impact was profound, as teenagers stepped forward, embracing the opportunity to confess their guilt and commit their lives to Jesus.
The response varied among the attendees. Some were church kids seeking a fresh start and a renewed connection with Jesus. Others, who had not previously experienced the influence of Christian teachings, found themselves moved during the week and made the decision to embark on new spiritual journeys. Each person who approached the cross received support from a dedicated volunteer from the prayer team. In addition to engaging in conversations about surrendering their lives to Jesus, they were offered prayers to further strengthen their commitment.
The impact of TrueStory has been so significant that a follow-up program has been initiated, taking place every Thursday. This ongoing program aims to provide continuous guidance and support for those individuals who made the life-changing decision to follow Jesus during the blessed week.
The collaboration between YFC Germany and the Evangelical Youth Alliance of Darmstadt proved to be a powerful force in spreading the message of the gospel to the younger generation. The success of the event and the transformative impact it had on the lives of those who attended are reasons for celebration and gratitude. The organizers are thrilled with the outcomes of TrueStory and eagerly anticipate the lasting effect it will have on the lives of these young individuals.
