Three years ago at the request of the High School students I work with we held an event that is now in it’s third year. Funny, we never set out to do an annual event, just each year, one year at a time. Come to think of it that pretty much describes Kids for Christ USA: One school, one day, one week, one year at a time for 12 years. Now there are over 120 schools associated with us across the nation.
When I started KFCUSA I never intended to do Jr, high or High School, but a funny thing happened as we grew: so did the Kids. As they grew they asked us to come with them to the next level and the next. Now we are involved in the campus Bible Clubs of 8 different schools. What is awesome about this is that I and other team members do our jobs over coffee or chicken. In other words we meet with teams of students at the coffee shops or Chick-fil-a once a week. They plan their meetings and events. My job (and I LOVE IT) is to steer them, helping them to become the leaders God gifted them to be and they are VERY gifted leaders.
When they asked me to meet with them weekly and train them to lead there was just one humble overwhelmed girl named Abbie. At her request we grew the team to include 13 students from 7th grade-Seniors. Some could speak, some were musically gifted, some had a knack for marketing and socializing. As they matured into their roles they asked me if we could have a “Worship” event led by students with other area schools. The result was “Tulsa Night of Worship”. The first year we had over 100 students from at least five area public high schools. We said we are not going to bill this as an annual event, but now we are about to have our third one.
This year’s event will take place in the concert room at Agora Coffeehouse in the Fontana Shopping Center (At 51st and Memorial) Good Friday night (3.29.2013) from 7-9 pm. I promise you if you come you will not soon have another night so unified and focused on Jesus. Come worship and pray with us for our schools.
