Following months of waiting and praying, YEC is taking a different path for 2020.

The annual youth gathering will not meet at Rapides Coliseum in Alexandria on Sunday and Monday, November 22-23 as originally scheduled. Groups who have already signed up will have their registration fees automatically refunded.

Instead, local/regional events are in the planning stages and will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

Brandon Lewis, Youth Ministry Strategist for Louisiana Baptists, believes youth groups across the state are eager to come together.

“YEC is coming to your area!” Lewis stated. “2020 has taken so much away from all of us, so we’re asking the Lord, and working with local churches, to provide a safe, fun and uplifting experience for students. We need a spiritual booster shot, if you will, to close out this crazy year.”

Lewis hopes to announce alternative dates and locations by mid-October.

The Youth Evangelism Celebration (YEC) is an evangelistic and equipping event designed to lead young people to Christ and challenge believers to greater accomplishments in Christ. Complete with high energy, inspirational youth speakers; top Christian vocalists and musicians; life changing youth testimonies; and sensational multi-media presentations, this event will erupt with the powerful message of salvation and the dynamic journey of discipleship. The Youth Evangelism Celebration is the greatest place, the greatest “front-door” for bringing lost teenagers and growing believers!
