Day 2 started bright and early this year with a sunrise prayer service hosted by the WIN (World Intercession Network) Prayer Ministry. Praying for Youth Quest and the participants proved to be a wonderful way to start the day.
Later in the morning, the Youth Quest Forums began. This year our forums were YQDO, YQGO, YQGRAD, and YQMeet. They focused on the topics of practical ministry for all ages, global discipleship and missions, preparing for college, and meeting the Student Ministries Advisory Team!
The Fine Arts, Bible Bowl, and Quoting Bee picked up after lunch, and the ballrooms were abuzz with excited supporters anxiously waiting to cheer on their friends and family!
At 7pm everyone gathered in the Peabody Auditorium for the first worship service of YQ15. The Matt Barlett band did an amazing job leading worship and returning guest speaker, Allen Griffin, delivered a dynamic message.
Friday night ended with an after party on the beach that was hosted by our IPHC colleges: Emmanuel, Southwestern, and Holmes. An evening on the sand was the perfect end to a long day.
