Every aspect of the Celebration directs believers toward prayer—determined, heartfelt, ceaseless prayer. So, as we near the Celebration, please be in prayer for Will Graham, our team leaders, and most importantly, that the Word of the Lord be spread throughout the community and area.

Our training is rooted in the Christian Life and Witness Course (CLWC) for adults and FM419 for youth. These are the best opportunities you have to become equipped for a Celebration as well as a lifetime of evangelism and discipleship.
Christian Life and Witness Course
CLWC will reignite your faith and empower you to live a life that radiates God’s love. Discover the victory He has for His children and equip yourself to share it with others through this dynamic course. You’ll also find practical help in reaching the next generation for Christ. The course is taught by a representative of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

FM419 is specifically designed for youth, but adults are welcome to attend. Youth from across the region will gather for a session of music and life-changing training. Get down to the basics of what you believe, find power to live what you say, and learn how to share your faith with others.
Bring a Friend
In John 1:40-42a (NIV) we read, “Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.”
Bring a Friend is based on that passage. Those of us who have a personal relationship with Christ must seek out our brothers and sisters who don’t know Him and bring them to Him. We do this by making a list of those we know who need to know Jesus, then praying for them and building/strengthening our relationships with them. We make plans to take them to the Celebration services, not just invite them to go. Many people have come to Christ because of Bring A Friend.
This program encourages you to:
- Look Around – to identify relatives, friends, co-workers, or acquaintances who show the need for a relationship with Christ.
- Look Up – by routinely praying for these individuals and for the opportunity to strengthen your relationship with them.
- Look Out – for ways to cultivate friendships with each person on your list and earn their confidence, ultimately finding opportunities to talk with them about Christ.
- Look Forward – to invite each person to a Celebration meeting.
- Look After – those who respond to the invitation or show an interest in learning more about the Gospel.

Bring a Friend
The Core is a leadership development program that identifies youth and young adults who have shown leadership potential. Our goal is to equip students with the training and discipleship needed to become leaders and trendsetters within their communities and spheres of influence.
What does this look like?
The Core is composed of two parts:
The training consists of 5–7 group gatherings spaced out over an 8–10 month period. Group gatherings contain elements of worship, teaching, discussion, prayer, and planning. Each gathering precedes a culminating outreach event so that students have opportunities to be directly involved in some aspect of the event, providing them with practical experiences in leadership and service.
In between group gatherings, students are expected to meet once or twice with a mentor assigned to them by their youth pastor. Materials are provided for pastors and mentors to use during these times with their students. The content of the material is related to the previous group gathering and builds upon previous teaching and discussions. These are key times of discipleship and relationship building.
