Come And See

“He (Jesus) said to them,‘Come and see.’” John 1:39a

National Youth Conference (NYC) 2006 challenged the youth of the Church of the Brethren to “come and see,” with a conference theme inspired by John 1:35-39.

The 3,606 youth, advisors, and staff who answered the call witnessed a faith in Christ that can move mountains.

Set at the base of the Rocky Mountains, NYC offered both an experience of the awesomeness of God’s creation, and a challenge to “move” the mountainous problems of our world such as poverty, child abuse, violence, and hunger.

Besides two daily worship services, participants studied the Bible, did service projects, played during recreation, went hiking, sang in the choir, and fellowshiped.
