Youth Evangelism Celebration

2023 YEC

November 19-20, 2023 • Rapides Coliseum, Alexandria

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!
