UNITED Church youths under the Eastern Islands Region successful concluded their regional youth convention yesterday.

The convention took place at the compound of Wesly United Church and brought together 900 plus youth members from across the region for a time of fellowship and collaboration.

Rev Ngasi said told Sun paper yesterday that this program is a regional youth convention aimed at empowering youths to continue spread the Gospel of Jesus.

“It is a four days program. The event features sessions focusing on empowering youths in their Christian lives and on how they can live their life in Jesus. Today there are many challenges facing our young people and in order for them to stand against these challenges they need to be empowered and equipped with the word of God.

This is so far the biggest regional youth convention we have in our region. We suggest if hosting this convention in Marovo or Roviana circuits will be better,” he said.

He concluded by thanking all youth members who took time out and be part of this convention.

Thank you so much for allowing yourselves to be part of this 4 days event. I want to also acknowledged team leaders who have worked tirelessly in bringing all their members together and as well as those who supported our youths. Thank you so much everyone,” Rev Ngasi said.
