The Youth Evangelism Celebration (YEC) is an evangelistic and equipping event designed to lead students to Christ and challenge believers to greater accomplishments in Christ. Complete with high energy, inspirational speakers; top Christian vocalists and musicians; life-changing student testimonies; and sensational multi-media presentations, this event will erupt with the powerful message of salvation, and the dynamic journey of discipleship. The Youth Evangelism Celebration is the greatest place, the greatest “front door”, for bringing lost students and growing believers!

The cost for this event is $50. This year we will partnering with sister church, Unity Baptist Church and Peyton Spears and all transport together on the First Baptist Church bus. The youth will need money for lunch at the food trucks and merchandise if they want to buy some cool merch while we're at YEC. We will be responsible for transportation to and from the Rapides Parish Coliseum.
