CDCYPU

Theme: “UNITY”

 

            “In Unity There’s Strength”. The words to this song were heard resonating throughout Christ Church of Deliverance in Hartford, CT this past Saturday evening, October 7th. Yes, the Connecticut District Council (CDC) was in session and the young people were out in numbers!

 

Under the leadership of Bro. Timothy Ralph, the Connecticut District Council Young People's Union (CDCYPU) president, the young people gathered together once again to invoke the presence of the Lord and to partake in wonderful fellowship. The entire week was a blessing, with speakers such as Suffragan Bishop Joseph Oliver and Pastor Judy Moss. The speaker for the youth was Pastor Frederick Jackson of Greater Grace Apostolic Church in Terryville, CT. God certainly used him on that evening, and the saints were blessed by the message. He focused on how The Lord is waiting for the saints to simply turn to Him during life's storms. The presence of the Lord was truly in the place, and visitors were filled with The Holy Ghost!

 

The Teen Forum, led by Sis. Joanna Thomas, gathered in the upper chapel of Christ Church earlier that day. They discussed how important it is to monitor the things that we let influence us. The youth were very involved in the discussion with many sharing of their knowledge and the things they have learned at their churches. The discussion was eye-opening and highly motivating.

 

Once again, the CDCYPU choir was wonderful. Singing “I’m a Believer” and “Grateful”, the choir ministered with excitement and enthusiasm!

The CDCYPU theme is “UNITY”. The president encouraged the saints to remember this theme. For the scripture says in Ephesians 4:3-6, “Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all”.

NDCYPU Celebrates at "Back to School Jubilee"

by Christina Shaw

 

This Labor Day weekend marked not only the start of a new school year, but the "Back to School Jubilee" hosted by the Northeastern District Council Young People's Union (NDCYPU) of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc.! The Jubilee, held at Christ Tabernacle Apostolic Church in Worcester, MA., started with a bang as songs of praises were sung and the presence of the Lord was invoked. The highlight of the Thursday evening service was the message, spoken by Pastor Sharon Dean of New Jersey. First lady and dynamic minister, Pastor Dean shared with us the message, "Chosen to Worship" in which she highlighted the importance of being a part of God's elect, and the privilege it is to be a "chosen vessel", as was the theme of the Jubilee.

 

Friday night's service was no less a blessing! Pastor Dean ministered a message based upon the story of Hannah. She stressed the importance of parents' prayers over their children, and how these prayers are vital to their children's destiny, as was Hannah's prayer for her son, Samuel.

 

Evangelist Dean is also a powerful minister of song, writing and singing all of the songs on her latest project, "Soul Cries." (Find more information under the Music link.) As a result of God's hand on Pastor Dean, those who attended the Jubilee conference were certainly blessed!

 

The conference continued on Saturday afternoon with two explosive seminars. The first was a prayer clinic lead by Evangelist Felicia Burke of Waterbury, CT. She explained the vitality of prayer in the lives of youth, and its imperativeness to Spiritual success. Evangelist Burke also encouraged the young people to maintain a written prayer list as it is a great tool to help youth remain focused during their communication with God.

 

The speaker for the second seminar was a former admissions recruiter at Clark University in Worcester, MA. He expounded upon the importance of good academic performance and involvement in high school in order to have a successful college search process.

 

The congregation remained captivated at the collegiate seminar by the four-person panel of Christian youth, composed of both current college students and one graduate. Each member of the panel shared their testimonies as to how God has helped them through college, and what choices they have had to make in order to have a spirtually successful college experience.

 

 

A heartfelt thank you goes to the NDCYPU, their president, Bro. Thomas White, and their wonderful staff for implementing such a wonderful conference. As a result, more young people are prepared to return to school, ready and willing to be witnesses for the Lord!
