Youth Challenge Young People Discover the Power of Two

Following the biblical model to go out, do ministry and bless a house, 19 young people went this summer into the Camano/Stanwood/Marysville, Silverdale/Bremerton, Tacoma, and Sequim/Port Angeles communities.

“The ‘Power of Two’ is about what God can do with you,” said Jonathan Fetrick, Youth Challenge director. “We [also] believe ministry happens in the context of teams, a model we see throughout Scripture."

Youth Challenge, a youth and literature evangelism program, is designed to train students for effective ministry while helping them develop their leadership skills and raise funds for education.

“Every day in Youth Challenge, we have divine appointments that remind us that our God is great,” said Ranny Rattu, a team leader with five summers of experience.

While the largest part of Youth Challenge is door-to-door work selling books and praying with people, participants also engaged in community service, day camps and Vacation Bible Schools as a way for young people to learn multiple creative evangelism formats.

In all, this summer, Youth Challenge contacted 23,419 homes, sold 1,505 books, shared 5,289 prayers, lined up 32 Bible study interests and raised $24,706 through donations.
