Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Capital City Youth Convention 2013 was a tremendous success! The Spirit of the Lord moved in a very powerful way. Friday night the entire auditorium became an altar service with students, youth groups, saints, pastors and ministers praying for each other in a most apostolic way! The crowd on Friday night swelled to over 1,200 people. Thirty minutes before service we had to add an additional 200 chairs because the attendance was so great.
On Saturday morning, 41 ministers and those aspiring to ministry (40 years of age and under) gathered in a private session with Bro. Stoneking (see photos below). A great visitation of the Lord met with us and it was very encouraging.
Here are a few highlights for you:
- We are happy to report to you that 26 students were filled with the Baptism of the Holy Ghost!
- An Assembly of God youth pastor was present and said that their group had never seen or experienced anything like what was happening at CCYC13. One of their students was filled with the Holy Ghost.
- There are numerous reports of backsliders praying back through in their living rooms as they watched the live streaming of the event.
- Testimonies continue to come in of a great overflow of REVIVAL in Sunday services in local churches across WV in the wake of CCYC13.
- Civic Center Staff commented to us that they were so impressed with our WV students. They also mentioned that during most "religious" events they host, young people are normally wandering the halls and seem disinterested and bored with the events but that this was not the case with WV youth. This is a great testimony to the hunger our students have for God and to the training they are receiving from pastors and youth leaders in their home churches!
- If you have a testimony, please share with us at: email@example.com or on our WV Youth Facebook Page.
Also, please note the following:
- Dropcards with access to MP3 files of all services are available for $10 by contacting Justin Meadors at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Our photographer, Nicholas Woolsey, took hundreds of photographs and has multiple packages including individual photo downloads, official CCYC13 CD of photos, and official CCY13 CD of photos with printing rights available at: Nicholas Woolsey Photography
- Youth Convention 2014 dates are February 13-14, 2014.

Sincerely in Christ,
