Jon Petersen, associate pastor at Bible Fellowship Church in Rapid City, S.D., was speaker for the conference’s five sessions with messages based in Luke.

The event also included small group breakouts, games, free time, a late-night activity and presentations by partner agencies.

The group performed service projects around Sioux Falls, including serving with Feeding South Dakota, helping at a nursing home, doing park cleanup and participating in a prayer walk and talk at the mall.

The event was organized by the Central District Youth Committee, including new member Amber Davidson and outgoing members Ron and Karri Muff, in addition to Jon Annin, Jon Petersen and Abby Giwojna.

“The Fall Youth Conference is a great event were we can build our relationship with Christ and others,” Giwojna says. “It’s a time for not only the youth, but the leaders, to come learn more about Christ, worship together, make memories and serve others. It’s an amazing weekend where God’s Kingdom is spread.”
