This past weekend’s FM419 training showed him that his evangelism approach toward his friends has been heavy-handed and that he is not even listening to them. Now, he wants to approach them with an attitude of love.
FM419 is training designed to provide evangelism tools to today’s youth. In April, a training weekend was held in Baton Rouge in preparation for the Rock the River Tour this summer. Other training weekends will be held over the next two weekends in St, Louis and Minneapolis-St. Paul, respectively.
“We are excited to provide a means for kids to really examine whether they are living the way God wants them to live, dealing with everyday problems in a way that most pleases Him, and showing the boldness in sharing that is required of them,” said John Cass, an FM419 trainer. “We don’t only look forward to seeing decisions for Christ as a result of Rock the River; we want to see kids who are already Christians turn every aspect of their life over to God and follow Him.”
Ali, also 17 years old, plans to invite some of her unchurched friends to the Rock the River concert. She is hopeful that this will be just what her friends and her city need.
“I just hope a lot of lives are changed for good by Rock the River, and people who have heard God’s word and message will be changed and have a purpose,” said Ali. “I want them to realize what they have been missing and know where they are going in life.”
