“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

1 Timothy 4:12

As you know, we had to cancel this year’s PowerSurge Discipleship Retreat at Golden Bell.  We received news last Monday that Teller County, in which Golden Bell resides, increased their restrictions allowing only 50 people in a meeting room, ultimately affecting how we would safely and wisely operate this year’s PowerSurge in person. We all were heartbroken that this event could not take place.

At this point in time, our President Ed Belzer has sent back registration refunds to your church like we have done in the past with Main Event. If you are one of those youth groups that was willing to allow your registration money to go to Golden Bell to help them financially during this down time, that would still be great. But you will need to send them a different check, as it was becoming too conflicting to do it through our registration system

But PowerSurge wasn’t totally over completely! We had a virtual PowerSurge service last Saturday morning. It was recorded for anyone to watch later if they missed it at 10 am. It is now available to view at this link:

Keep praying for our students and adult NYI sponsors across Colorado. It is becoming mentally and emotionally difficult for everyone because of cancellations and changes that we encounter everyday it seems.
