11 Sep At what age did you chose to follow Jesus?
At what age did you chose to follow Jesus? I hope you have. Most people begin their journey with God before they grow up. Theyâ€™re still exploring what lifeâ€™s all about. Greg Lyons did and look what happened. After graduate degrees, heâ€™s spent the next 26 years targeting young people in Manila where 39% of people are 15 or younger, and 68% age 29 or younger. Like Willie Sutton robbed banks because thatâ€™s where the money was, God called Greg to expose kids to the life-changing good news of Godâ€™s love, perhaps because they listen and respond. Gregâ€™s done it.
You can hear his stories. Nearly half a million young people learn of Jesus in Manila alone. Kids hear of him at basketball camps. A large Bible School trains future leaders for Asia and missionaries for the world. Church planters envision expanding the new 13 congregations to 100. Maybe our vision here in the United States is too small. Or that we need another Greg Lyons, some young person in the pipeline. Come and be challenged to ask why it couldnâ€™t it happen here? Or is God already at work here too?
Greg Lyons is speaking Saturday evening 7:00-8:45pm (combined adult and youth plenary).
