CCYC13 Revival Report

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:  youthpres@wvupci.org 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 youthsec@wvupci.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.

In closing, let me thank our wonderful Youth Secretary Justin Meadors and his wife Tiphanii for their outstanding help in planning and executing this event.  We also have an amazing team who we love and appreciate so much:

  • Section One--Nathaniel and Amanda Reed
  • Secton Two--Roger and JoLia Zimmerman
  • Section Three--Joe and Lisa Hunt
  • Section Four--Joel and Angela Sites
  • Section Five--Jarrod and Crystal Price

We also give honor to Rev. Stephen Kuntzman and Rev. Jacob Pack for serving as "Platform and Service Coordinators."  Their work behind the scenes was a blessing. And, finally THANK YOU pastors, parents, grandparents and youth leaders for allowing us the privilege to minister to and host your students at CCYC13!

Please check www.wvyouth.com/, the WV Youth Facebook page and Twitter for important updates as we move forward.

Sincerely in Christ,

Robert E. Fazzalore
WV Youth Ministry President

WV District poised to set an all-time record in missions-giving

It is not yet a given, but it is very, very doable, and getting closer all the time to being ready for the history books! Earlier we reported the progress was at 76%. When we started this morning, that was the case. However, as the day has progressed, quite a few more churches in WV and western MD have conveyed their willingness to give, such that currently (as of 6:25 pm, on February 5, 2013) the WV District is over 93% of the way toward setting an all-time record offering to missions through Christmas For Christ! We’re also shooting for 100% participating, regardless of a church’s offering amount, large or small. Can you send something for Christmas For Christ? If so, please mail your check as soon as possible, made out to "WV NAM," and addressed to: Pastor David Forsythe, PO Box 3068, Wheeling WV, 26003.
