Ontario UPC

Youth Convention 2013!

We were privileged to enjoy another fabulous Ontario Youth Convention this year.  The worship team did an excellent job, and Bro. Tyler Walea helped usher us into the presence of the Lord.

We enjoyed incredible ministry from Bro. Jimmy Toney and Bro. Shawn Stickler.  Their messages were challenging and timely, encouraging students to grow towards the center of the church, have faith,  accept the calling of work and faithfulness, and finally to allow the flame of the Spirit to burn uncovered in our lives.

We bade a tearful farewell to the Sticklers as their years of service come to a conclusion.  They have done an excellent job of encouraging the young people of the District and have helped propel youth ministry in Ontario to a new level.  They will be missed!

At least 20 young people were filled with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the first time and 5+ were baptized for the first time in the precious name of Jesus.  Excellent crowds were there throughout the event which rose to an apex of praise on the last night.  Until next year!
