ADA – URGE Ministry will host a free concert Sunday, August 21 featuring Mr. Courtnee Morris as the guest speaker (read about Courtnee’s story) along with the Mike Lee Band (Worship) from Fort Wayne, SafeKept (Christian Rock) from Columbus and B List Boys (Christian Hip Hop) from Bluffton.
The focus of URGE Ministry is to encourage students (junior high through college age) to do well in the upcoming school year but more importantly to urge them to be who God wants them to be in their schools.
“I think there are way too many students who love God but seem to leave their faith at the door when they head back to school or they become this ‘other person; when they get back in school,” said URGE Ministry committee member Gideon Fisher.
“Too often students assume they are alone in their faith and I think they would benefit from seeing – and experiencing – that they are not. I really want them to see the importance of shining their light and being Jesus in their school.”
