ALEXANDRIA, La. (LBM) – The 2020 Youth Evangelism Celebration is going on the road this year for three one-night events called “YEC: Limited Edition.”
Originally, YEC was scheduled to convene at the Rapides Parish Coliseum in Alexandria, Nov. 22-23, but novel coronavirus pandemic attendance restrictions caused the event to move to a regional format.
First Baptist Church in Haughton will host the first of these smaller gatherings, Nov. 8, 6-8 p.m. Eddie Briery, pastor of The Church at Red River in Shreveport, will be the main speaker.
Louisiana College will host the second in the series, Nov. 11, 6-8 p.m. Derek “Griff” Griffon, student pastor at The Bayou Church in Lafayette, will be the main speaker. This event also will be livestreamed on the Louisiana Baptist website for groups who can’t attend.
First Baptist Church in Lafayette will close out YEC: Limited Edition, Nov. 15, 6-8 p.m. Shane Pruitt, National Next Gen Evangelism Director for the North American Mission Board, will be the guest speaker.
Nick Parish, interim worship leader at Grawood Baptist Church in Keithville, will provide music at all three regional events.
All participants will be required to wear a mask at the three events, and group leaders must take temperatures of each participant prior to arrival at the venues. Additionally, groups will be seated together and distanced from other churches.
YEC will cost $10 per person and pre-registration is required. For more information, contact Julie Mitcham at 318.449.4217 or email email@example.com.
