What we learned from Soul Survivor

This summer, the youth headed to Soul Survivor Week B! 5 days of fun, food, camping, (not)showering and worshipping God.

The highlights

Perhaps more a low-light than a highlight (well – a highlight for the leaders!) was the day 4 morning meeting where Mike Pilavachi asked for everyone who hadn’t showered yet to stand. Let’s just say that the vast majority of our group stood up…

Unmissable this year was the self-service slushy machine. A selection of perhaps 12-14 slushy flavours to mix and match to your heart’s content. All the usual flavours were there like strawberry and lemon & lime, in addition to red bull! We’ve decided that Soul Survivor must hate youth leaders…

The worship

The worship needs a heading of it’s own. It was an amazing experience to worship God with 8,000 other young people and (not so young) youth leaders. We let ourselves go a bit and got lost in wonder. We also prayed for each other and saw God move in some incredible ways – even some healing both in our group and in others at the event.

God kept us all safe and the weather was fantastic the entire time.

Pumped for Soul Survivor 2019! Sign-up sheets will be available soon.

Love & fist pumps,
