Higher Call Youth Summit

Be equipped and encouraged in the call of Christ on your life!

Higher Call Youth Summit

Friday & Saturday, November 1 & 2, 2019

All teens, grade 7 through high school, are invited to join us at the Youth Summit hosted by Bethel Baptist Church in Simcoe, ON. Youth Summit is a day and a half of Bible preaching, training sessions and fun activities that are structured to encourage and equip you for Christ's calling on your life. Youth speakers and trainers from West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, California will provide opportunities of Christian growth during preaching rallies and break-out sessions.

schedule & Cost

Friday night, teens will need to meet at 5:50 PM at Open Bible Baptist Church (OBBC) for transportation to Bethel Baptist Church in Simcoe, ON. After a youth rally with singing and preaching, the remainder of the evening will include food, indoor and ourdoor sports, and a bonfire. Teens will then need to be picked up by their parents from OBBC around 11 PM. This is not an overnight event. Each day is fully chaperoned. All of our adult chaperones and drivers have had appropriate safety checks.

Saturday, teens will need to meet at 7:50 AM at OBBC for transportation to Bethel Baptist Church in Simcoe, ON. Saturday's schedule begins with games, preaching and sessions in the morning. Lunch will be served at the church. During the afternoon, more sessions will be available for teens to choose from before a final preaching time. Teens will have the option to choose different sessions like: "“How to share your faith with a friend”, “How to read your Bible”, “How do we know God is real” & “I’ve been hurt, now what?” Teens will then need to be picked up by their parents from OBBC around 5 PM.

What to Wear? Teens should dress warmly and appropriately for the outdoor activities on Friday night. Guys and girls are asked to wear loose fitting attire that covers from the knees to the neck. Nice casual clothing would be appropriate for Saturday's preaching services and training sessions.

What's the cost? The cost for the event is $15.00 per teen. See below for registration & payment. No teen will be guaranteed a ride if not signed up by Wednesday, October 30, 2019.
