My name is Ron Luce, the leader of JESUS GLOBAL YOUTH DAY and I am excited to be partnering with you.
You may be a pastor, or an excited leader interested in reaching out to the young people in your region. I want to say how excited I am that you have decided to partner with JESUS GLOBAL YOUTH DAY. This is a historic moment where youth all over the world will be gathering both in Manila for the live event, and in churches in many different nations gathering together for the Global Broadcast. It is time now for us, as church leaders, to come together to focus on reaching the younger generation with the life-giving power of the Gospel! This is the first time JESUS GLOBAL YOUTH DAY has ever been done, so this is a historical moment where millions will be gathered and YOU get to be a part of spear-heading it in your country, in your region.
Please note, there will be many international worship teams, so you and your group will get to taste a variety of different worship styles from around the world. One of the gust speakers will be Nick Vujicic, who leads a ministry called “Life Without Limbs”, and you just do not want your youth to miss him sharing his heart as he speaks to millions, and inspires them around the world every year.
Right-now is the time to be praying. Pray for all the young people you want to reach in your town, in your city, and in your village. If you are a pastor, plan now on August 10, 2019 to invite all the youth in your whole city to your church, find a screen or rent a screen, and make sure you check with your National Coordinator in your country to find out how you can get the stream online or through a broadcast partner. It’s going to be a ministry moment like you’ve never seen in your church before. If you are not a pastor, please go to your pastor and ask him, share this video with him, in fact, this is a video you are going to want to share with your whole church to get them praying for August 10th and praying for all the young people you will want to invite. Ask your pastor if he’ll open the church to host a gathering of people on the night of August 10th. If you’re not able to do that, find another venue, a coffee shop, a home, an auditorium and take the bull by the horns. It is through people like you that the world is changed.
I have included with this email a link to the most impacting, devotional book I have ever written for young people called, “The 10-Challenges of a World Changer”. Please feel free to download this pdf now and pass it to all the youth in your youth group. Have them to begin going through it now, for the next four weeks in preparation for JESUS GLOBAL YOUTH DAY. It will prepare them to disciple the young people that are going to come to Christ. I encourage you now to put a “faith-goal” out there: how many young people do you want to see come to Christ on August 10th? 10? 50? 100? 500? Maybe 1,000? Make a faith-goal and begin to pray for it right now, put names on a board of the people you want to reach. If you have not signed up for your group to be apart of the Global Broadcast, please click here to register so you can get more materials to prepare.
I have also included a Save the Date JESUS GLOBAL YOUTH DAY graphic which can be found here Please take this graphic, post to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, email, and text to all your youth group along with the specific date, time, and address of your church where they can be part of Jesus Global Youth Day.
Please find the link here for the JESUS GLOBAL YOUTH DAY Facebook page and let us know what you are doing to prepare for JESUS GLOBAL YOUTH DAY, how we can pray for you, your faith-goals, and if you have any questions. We are a global family reaching out to reach this generation.
